Joseph O’Brien sealed a jockey-trainer St Leger double as Galileo Chrome won the final British Classic of 2020.

The 27-year-old trainer, son of the legendary Aidan, won as a jockey in 2013 and is the second man, after Harry Wragg in the 1930s, to win as both.

It was jockey Tom Marquand’s first Classic win, having only secured the ride on Friday after Shane Cross tested positive for Covid-19.

The 4-1 Galileo Chrome was a neck clear of Berkshire Rocco (16-1).

Pyledriver (9-2) was third while Frankie Dettori, seeking a seventh St Leger for both himself and Joseph’s father Aidan O’Brien, finished fourth on the 5-2 favourite, one and a half lengths adrift.
