Tim Easterby has given his William Hill St Leger contender Wells Farhh Go a clean bill of health after his win at Newmarket last week.
Unplaced in his first two runs this season, admittedly in good company, he made every yard of the running to win the Bahrain Trophy.
The three-year-old will now move up another level from a Group Three to a Group Two and the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York next month, where he will look to cement his Classic claims.
“He’s come out of the race in very good form, thankfully,” said Easterby.
“It was always the plan to make more use of him. We actually wanted to do that at Ascot, when we went through that race we thought there’d be a couple who’d go forward, but they didn’t.
“It was a bit of a cock-up in the end because they dawdled, but we got it right eventually.
“It’s definitely the Great Voltigeur next and we’ll see how he gets on there.”
