St Leger Betting News: Doncaster’s Annual Classic is Only Days Away

St Leger Betting News Update

The William Hill St Leger is now only a few days away. A true test of stamina for the classic three-year-old generation, over 30,000 racegoers are set to descend on Doncaster Racecourse for Saturday’s climax of the four day St Leger race meeting.  Read on for the some St Leger betting news and odds…

Of course the big question is who will win the St Leger?

16 horses are still amongst the entries in the 1-mile 6-furlong classic albeit Flag of Honour is almost certainly staying on home soil to contest the Irish St Leger at the Curragh the following day.

Of the remaining 15, and the final declarations will be made on Thursday morning, Kew Gardens heads the St Leger betting odds at 7/4 with Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook for Aidan O’Brien who is aiming to win the race for a sixth time. The Ballydoyle maestro could have up to six runners in the fabled race while his son, Joseph O’Brien, still has Latrobe in the contest.

Latrobe is a fascinating runner, given he has an entry into the 2018 Melbourne Cup race and a good run in the Leger could see him head ‘down under’ in the quest to become the first three-year-old winner of the ‘race that stops a nation’ since Skipton in 1941.

Talking of record seekers, Lah Ti Dar is seeking to become only the second filly to win the St Leger since User Friendly in 1992.  Trained by John Gosden and owned by musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, their charge could also emulate User Friendly by becoming a rare winner of this race carrying an unbeaten tag – she’s currently three from three.

Godolphin Again?

This season’s Epsom Derby winning handler, Charlie Appleby, has two entries:  Royal Ascot winner Old Persian and Loxley who most recently win a Group 2 in Deauville, France.  

But while Appleby has yet to saddle a St Leger winner himself, it must be pointed out his employers, the Godolphin organisation, have won the great race six times since Classic Cliché scored for them in 1995.

St Leger Dark Horse?

Meanwhile if you are looking for more of a St Leger betting ‘long shot’ and would like to see some new names amongst the Leger’s Roll of Honour, you’ll be funking for Proschema (top priced 66/1 with Black Type) to do the business for trainer Tom Dascombe who has ever won a classic, and jockey Richard Kingscote.
