The Derby runner-up Silver Patriarch heads a list of 50 entries for the St Leger, the final Classic, over a mile six furlongs and 132 yards at Doncaster on 13 September. The John Dunlop-trained colt, undergoing tests following his flop in last Sunday's Irish Derby, could be joined by at least four of his Epsom victims at Doncaster.

The Derby fifth the Fly, Symonds Inn (seventh), Bold Demand (ninth) and Single Empire (11th) have also been entered for the pounds 330,000 contest. Aidan O'Brien could attempt to win his first British Classic with Johan Cruyff and Strawberry Roan, fourth and eight respectively in the Irish Derby. France's six entries include the Oaks second Gazelle Royale.

Celeric, the Gold Cup winner, may tackle the Princess Of Wales's Stakes over a mile and a half at Newmarket next Tuesday.
