Masked Marvel (15-2) gave John Gosden and William Buick back-to-back wins in the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster.

The duo teamed up after the success of Arctic Cosmos a year ago and Buick enjoyed a trouble-free passage through the race. The eventual winner opened up a handy advantage and never looked like being pegged back as he stayed on powerfully to the line to score by three lengths. Brown Panther went in pursuit to claim second for owner Michael Owen while favourite Sea Moon endured plenty of trouble up the straight before hitting the frame once in the clear.
