The distinguished bloodstock commentator Tony Morris evaluates the prospects of Beresford Stakes winner St Nicholas Abbey (by Montjeu) for the 2010 classics here.

St Nicholas Abbey traces in the female line through a half-sister to G1 winners Starborough (by Soviet Star) and Aristotle  (by Sadler’s Wells) back to Fleet Flight, a Count Fleet half-sister to major winners Lea Lane and Leallah (both by Nasrullah).

The pedigree for St Nicholas Abbey shows classic influences aplenty and no inbreeding through five generations except for Argentine star Forli 5×5.
