Gosden tips Camelot to dominate

September 15, 2012 09:41:17 UK

John Gosden has pledged to ensure that "if Camelot is to win the Triple Crown it's quite obvious it's not a hollow crown".

Gosden - who runs Thought Worthy and Michaelangelo - admits that they are taking on the greatest colt of his generation and indicated that he expected the Aidan O'Brien horse to win.

Rarely does a horse come along who looks set to dominate like this one.

But then - in what could become one of the season's most famous phrases, added: "If he's to win the crown, we'll try to ensure it's not a hollow crown."

And he said that the reason it had taken so long for William Buick to make up his mind between his two staying three-year-olds indicated that Camelot is obviously a class above.

He said: "Rarely does a horse come along who looks set to dominate like this one and thus you take much longer to decide who may get the closest.

"We will give it our very best but of course we realise we are taking on in a horse who looks very special indeed and if he's on his game can be expected to win."

William Haggas' Guarantee is another with an improving profile but has to reach an entirely new level if he's to really give the favourite a test.

The trainer said: "He has to improve. Of course he does but hey, come on this is the St Leger and he's earned the chance to run his race."

Camelot is 1.40 to win the St Leger, with Main Sequence 8.50 and Thought Worthy 10.00.
