George Set To Star On Super Sunday

Order Of St George is just 1-5 with William Hill to win the Irish St Leger on Sunday. Earlier on the card, Churchill attempts to boost his claims for the 2000 Guineas – he’s currently 7-1 for the Classic with Hills.

Meanwhile, in France, there are a number of short price favourites in the Arc trials, with Makahiki just 4-9 to win the Qatar Prix Niel. Makahiki is 15-2 for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at this stage.

“Makahiki is the latest Japanese star to potentially try and win the Arc, so it’s crucial he runs well in his prep race,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Silverwave faces just three opponents in the Prix Foy – he is a current 33-1 chance for the Arc, which takes place at Chantilly this autumn.
