Gosden, who was landing his fifth Leger, said: 'Logician has won in a course record with one flick of the stick.

The five-year-old finished one-and-three-quarter lengths clear of Cleonte, with Max Dynamite third.

After initially being left in front, Andrew Balding's Cleonte was sent on by Oisin Murphy heading out for the second circuit in an attempt to inject some pace in the race, and he was still going great guns rounding the turn for home.

"I think Mr Nielsen's big plan, if the horse is happy and well, is to go to Ascot next year", he said.

They had two-and-a-quarter lengths in hand over the Mark Johnston pair of Sir Ron Priestley and Nayef Road who ran with great credit to finish second and third respectively for the Middleham trainer after Sir Dragonet, Aidan O'Brien's main contender, failed to stay.

Dettori and Gosden are now looking forward to the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with Enable. This year he's a very fresh horse still.

"The St Leger has been very lucky for me. From over two furlongs out I knew I'd won".

He told ITV Racing: "That was probably my easiest win (in the race), and he is a serious horse". I did hear the roar but it hits us five seconds later so when I hear it I'm nearly at the line.

'He was the favourite and there are nearly 30,000 people here.

"He's done so much, so quickly, this year and we'll put him away now".

Frankie Dettori wondered why boss John Gosden was so keen for him to ride a colt he knew little about in a handicap at an evening meeting at Newbury in July.

In the immediate aftermath of his latest triumph at York, connections suggested his next port of call would be next month's QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup at Ascot - which he also won last season - but a late change of heart saw Gosden bring his charge to Town Moor.

"We've won two Classics this year and we'll enjoy this moment before we get ready for the Arc in three weeks' time (with Enable)".

Earlier Threat added to his burgeoning reputation by winning the Pommery Champagne Stakes - a race that Dettori won 12 months ago on subsequent Group One victor Too Darn Hot.

However, this was - once again - another classic weekend for racing in which Frankie Dettori showed why he is still as good as ever.
