Saintorio firmed for a Melbourne autumn carnival assault after capping his Ascot campaign with a tough victory in the Sir Ernest Lee-Steere Classic (1400m) on Saturday.

Ridden by Brad Parnham, Saintorio ($3.10 favourite) overcame traffic problems early in the straight to gun down All The King’s Men ($3.70) by a head.

Aizya ($26), ridden by star Victorian hoop Jamie Kah, was close behind in third.

Saintorio successfully backed up after his brave third to Amelia’s Jewel in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) a week earlier.
