Raheen House was last seen winning the Group 3 Bahrain Trophy Stakes at Newmarket and the form has been boosted with Desert Skyline finishing third in the Goodwood Cup
RAHEEN HOUSE is set to head straight to next month’s William Hill St Leger at Doncaster.
Although trainer Brian Meehan will leave him in the Betway Great Voltigeur Stakes at York, he is likely to skip the race.
He was last seen winning the Bahrain Trophy Stakes at Newmarket.
Meehan said: “I’m pretty sure he will go straight to the St Leger. He will stay in the Voltigeur until as late as possible, but I would only take him there if I feel I need to.
