Drop In Class To Get First Win For Gosden Two-Year-Old

Kieran O'Neill rides ST PETERS BASILICA today in the Ladbrokes sponsored juvenile stakes at Gosforth Park and the son of middle-distance horse Galileo can get his head in front at the fourth attempt. After a gentle introduction at Ascot in mid-September (a statement in itself of the colt being held in some regard), he was raced over a mile at Kempton and finished just over five lengths down in fifth to Brian Epstein in a decent looking novice event. The second, Red October, has won since and the third, Blue Mountain, had been beaten in a photo on his previous run, his debut, so the form is decent. St Peters Basilica was then just out of the money on good to soft at Leicester before being beaten into third in a photo at Doncaster by My Boy Lewis with multiple winner/placed Shallow Hal in second. He drops a class from those efforts today, is top on BTOPlus+ ratings and gets a few nice positives including a near 20% trainer/jockey combination that is 32% better than expected. ALEXA ROSE and newly-hooded REVOLUTIONISE are next best but get some negatives. Of the unraced ones, HEATH CHARNOCK (14/1) gets a good few positives, but at a probable SP of 7/2, St Peter can open the gates to the winners enclosure.
