Kieren Fallon: Great Hall team want him to take Leger ride

Great Hall is on target for Saturday's Ladbrokes St Leger and connections hope Kieren Fallon will take the ride.

The Brian Meehan-trained three-year-old has won his last two starts, triumphing in the hands of Fallon at Haydock on his most recent outing in July.

He was forced to miss an intended prep run at York's Ebor meeting due to a change in ground and would prefer better conditions.

"He's in the Leger and the plan is to run," said Tony Stafford, racing manager to owner Raymond Tooth.

"Everyone would be very happy if Kieren rode him in the Leger. He knows him pretty well and has a lot of confidence in him.

"We wanted to run in the Melrose but the unbelievable amount of rain they had overnight meant it was pointless pulling a horse's guts out three weeks before the big one.

"He's a very exciting horse, and hopefully he'll be an even better horse next year."
