St George set for Curragh
Order Of St George could bid to win the Comer Group Irish St Leger Trial for the third year running at the Curragh on Saturday.
Aidan O'Brien's star stayer has won the mile-and-three-quarter Group Three for the last two seasons and bids for the hat-trick after going down by just a short head to Big Orange in his defence of his Gold Cup crown at Royal Ascot.
"The Irish St Leger Trial on Saturday is the race we are looking at for Order Of St George at the moment," said O'Brien.

"He's back after a break and he wouldn't mind it too much if the ground even got a bit on on the slow side."
O'Brien also has Air Supremacy, Finn McCool, Galilean, The Anvil and Key To My Heart in a 22-strong entry.
Wicklow Brave, who beat Order Of St George in the Irish St Leger last year, is among eight possibles from the Willie Mullins stable along with Aussie Reigns, Clondaw Warrior, Ivan Grozny, Laws Of Spin, Max Dynamite, Renneti and Thomas Hobson.
The four UK entries are Mick Channon's Elidor, the Iain Jardine-trained Nakeeta, Hughie Morrison's Nearly Caught and St Michel from Sir Mark Prescott's yard.
