2024 St Leger Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Saturday, 14 September 2024

Gregory has won three times already this season and the three-year-old will now head to Doncaster Racecourse to compete in the St Leger. John & Thady Gosden will have high hopes for their charge despite finishing third last time out, while the two trainers also have Arrest and Middle Earth among the leading contenders in the field.

Continuous appears to be getting better with each race and the Aidan O’Brien-trained runner was victorious last time out, with the bookies not dismissive of the horse’s chances here. Desert Hero runs in the royal colours and the William Haggas-trained charge also has to be one for the shortlist along with Savethelastdance.

2023 St Leger Tips

The 2023 St Leger is one of the most popular betting races of the flat season and it will be interesting to see which three-year-old is able to stay the pace over one mile, six and a half furlongs. Gregory is clearly a horse that has to be respected, with wins coming at Haydock Park, Goodwood and Ascot this season before finishing third at York.

Having been sent off as the 8/11 favourite in the Great Voltigeur Stakes, the Frankie Dettori-ridden runner was beaten into third and the winner on that occasion was Continuous. Perhaps the Aidan O’Brien-trained charge is the one to side with here, having finished second to King Of Steel in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Desert Hero has claimed back to back successes and that includes a surprise win in the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot. Sent off as the 18/1 outsider, the William Haggas-trained charge was able to score under the ride of Tom Marquand, with the same horse then able to follow this up with a triumph in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood.

Arrest has to be respected and also competes for the Gosden stable, with the three-year-old sent off as the 5/6 favourite in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes before obliging with a victory in that Group 3 encounter. That was over one mile, five and a half furlongs, suggesting that the trip shouldn’t be too much of a problem when it comes to the St Leger.


2022 St Leger Betting Odds Tips

The popular St Leger Festival culminates in St Leger Day where the historic classic is run at Doncaster Racecourse. New London looks like the three-year-old to beat and the horse is now odds-on to scoop prize money which is roughly around the £400,000 mark.

There are going to be customers who will instead be looking for each-way value on the race and there are some interesting alternatives. After all, we are bound to see horses run into a place and that could be Eldar Eldarov who is trained by Roger Varian and is no stranger to hitting the winners enclosure.

The three-year-old was sent off as favourite before falling short in the Grand Prix de Paris over one mile and four furlongs, although he was in esteemed company and there was a close finish that also involved eventual winner Onesto along with Simca Mille and El Bodegon.

Previously to this, David Egan rode the horse to victory in the Queen’s Vase and triumphed by a nose at betting odds of 5/2, with a 6/4 victory in a Novice Stakes at Newcastle Racecourse means that we can expect a good showing from this horse.

Secret State is the stablemate of New London who could rival the odds-on favourite due to also having strong form, with victories coming at Chester, Nottingham, Ascot and Goodwood. The most recent outing was finishing second behind Deauville Legend in the Great Voltigeur Stakes.


Hurricane Lane Currently Heads 2021 St Leger Market

William Buick has already ridden Hurricane Lane to three victories this season and the jockey is likely to be on board a three-year-old that began the campaign with a win in the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup British EBF Conditions Stakes, while this was followed up by a victory in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante Stakes.

This was a solid victory in a Group 2 encounter, with Buick then riding the horse to a credible third place in the Epsom Derby before bouncing back to victory in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby and he’ll now have solid claims to score a win in an English classic.

Adayar Could Be Another Appleby Star in the St Leger

Adayar is the stablemate of Hurricane Lane and the former hasn’t been outside of the top two this season, with James Doyle being on board in the Group 3 bet365 Classic Trial over one mile and two furlongs, with the horse narrowly being edged out by Alenquer.

There was then another runner-up position in the Novibet Derby Trial Stakes at Lingfield Racecourse on soft ground before Adam Kirby rode him to success in the Cazoo Derby and this was a particularly captivating victory for a horse that was sent off at a starting price of 16/1.

Who Are the Other St Leger Contenders?

Lone Eagle is a horse that needs to be respected, with Martyn Meade having seen his charge run a blinder when finishing second in the Irish Derby, with Frankie Dettori giving the horse a cracking run when being narrowly edged out by Hurricane Lane in the Irish Derby.

Aidan O’Brien has a couple of lively chances in the race, with Wordsworth possibly the most exciting runner from the Coolmore stable, with Ryan Moore giving the charge a decent spin in the Queen’s Vase when losing by a length and a half. Third place in the Irish Derby sets him up nicely for a tilt at the St Leger.


2020 St Leger betting tips

The UK and Irish flat horse racing season in 2020 has been badly disrupted, although it appears as though the St Leger is going to take place on the already scheduled date of Saturday 12 September, even if it’s far from certain whether spectators will be in attendance for the final English Classic race of the flat season.

This is a race that will be run over one mile, six-and-a-half furlongs, with this Group 1 encounter part of the British Champions Series and it’s a fairly long-distance race which will suit the three-year-old horses with the greatest stamina in the field.

Will Aidan O’Brien Enjoy a St Leger Clean Sweep?

Aidan O’Brien is no stranger to success when it comes to this race and he has lots of St Leger betting favourites in his camp this time around, with Santiago arguably the one to beat and he’s marginally the favourite at the time of writing.

Much comes down to whether jockey Ryan Moore chooses to ride this talented three-year-old who ran impressively at Glorious Goodwood when finishing third in the Goodwood Cup Stakes on 28 July 2020, coming behind the legendary Stradivarius and Nayef Road.

However, there are lots of other lively contenders and Serpentine is another O’Brien charge who can’t easily be ignored, with this three-year-old having won the Epsom Derby on 4 July 2020 although we haven’t seen him at another racecourse since then.

Serpentine was very much an O’Brien second string horse before that Classic victory although now has the tantalising prospect of landing a Derby and St Leger double within the same year, with the horse previously obliging in an Irish Maiden race.

Can Love and Mogul Make an Impression in the St Leger?

Love is also a 2020 Classic winner after landing victory in the 2020 Epsom Oaks and it looks as though the filly could be sent to Doncaster to compete in the St Leger where she’ll take her chances and also receive a fillies’ allowance as part of the equation.

Love has previously won the 1000 Guineas Stakes this season and you would have to fancy her to go close, although she has been largely competing against other female horses and this would represent a step up in class.

As for Mogul, the horse underwhelmed at Royal Ascot when finishing fourth out of six in the King Edward VII Stakes despite being sent off as the 10/11 race favourite, while the same runner could only achieve a midfield position in the Derby although there was better in the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood where victory was achieved.

How to Bet on the 2020 St Leger

At the moment, there is an antepost betting market available with several online bookmakers when it comes to the 2020 St Leger. This means you can get some tasty prices about the potential runners and entries although the horses are not certain to be lining up in the race.

The best way forward is to wait until the week of the race and then look for confirmed entries. You can figure out the number of runners and how this affects the overall odds and the each-way places.


01/09/2019 - Il Paradiso backed to win St Leger at Doncaster

While Logician has been the talking horse for the St Leger in a couple of weeks’ time since that outstanding performance at the Ebor Festival, there has been a steady gamble on another runner in the race and this entry’s price could shorten further in the lead-up to the race.

Il Paradiso has been under the radar until the past few days where the horse has leapfrogged the likes of Sir Dragonet, Sir Ron Priestly and Constantinople in the betting market, with the Aidan O’Brien-trained horse now a lively contender for this race.

The three-year-old has run four times already this season, triumphing at Leopardstown in May when winning a maiden race, although the horse went on to flop in the Irish Derby when finishing seventh out of eight runners and few would have backed him to be a Classic winner at that stage.

However, the horse then shone when returning to The Curragh on 21 July and a recent third-placed finish behind Stradivarius and Dee Ex Bee at York suggests that Il Paradiso isn’t without a chance at Doncaster.

O’Brien said: "Il Paradiso is in good form and came out of York in good shape. We are very happy with him and looking at the Leger for him next.

"We could run three or four and everything we have entered are possibles at this stage. Constantinople is progressing slowly with each run but we feel the longer trip at Doncaster will suit him much better than the mile and a half did at York. He's getting there slowly.

"Broome is a possible for the race too, but not a definite. Sir Dragonet has the option of Doncaster, the Prix Niel or the Irish Champion Stakes. He will improve from his recent run at the Curragh and we have yet to decide where he will go. He has a lot of different options, as a lot of them do.”

Il Paradiso was trading at 14/1 for the St Leger earlier in the week, although O’Brien’s comments after his performance at York has seen the horse cut to single figures and there is sure to be further money for the runner.

It’s certainly made Ladbrokes sit up and take notice, with spokesperson Nicola McGeady claiming that the firm have run up decent liabilities on a horse that ran a career-best for the ratings at the Knavesmire.

She told us: "It looks like Il Paradiso will be the leading Aidan O'Brien hope for the St Leger this year, with a string of support in his favour this morning. However, Logician remains the worst result in the book, with continuous support since his impressive York performance.”


Japan is one of several talented horses that Aidan O’Brien has at his disposal, with the Irish trainer suggesting that the three-year-old will be lining up in the 2019 St Leger.

The Leger is the final Classic race of the Flat racing season, with Doncaster racecourse hosting this exciting tussle in September and we’re likely to see Japan sent off as favourite if he runs.

He’s currently trading as the 5/2 favourite after winning the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, although it’s worth bearing in mind that this was only a Group 2 race and it might require an improved performance to win this particular race.

On that occasion, Japan obliged at 6/4 and Ryan Moore is likely to be on board once again in south Yorkshire, with the horse having previously finished strongly at Ascot in the final furlong of the race.

There seemed to be plenty of people in the know about Japan before the King Edward VII Stakes and jockey Moore’s comments suggest that he’s the one to take all the beating.

He said: "This is a high-class colt. He's very good and he put them to bed very easily there.

"He was the best horse, it was just keeping it simple really. He could be more than a Leger horse, he's a good horse. He will be a very effective over a mile and a half."

O’Brien echoed his jockey’s thoughts, with the trainer pointing out that third place in the Epsom Derby meant that Japan had been no slouch.

"The Derby was a very good race, I don't think anyone realised what a good race it was – we can see what happened to Circus Maximus earlier in the week. They were all there together – it was a very high-class race," said O'Brien.

The trainer continued: "This is a very smart horse and he is coming forward lovely all the time, we couldn't be happier. He had a lovely run in the Dante, and he was just ready to go again, and came forward for the Derby.

"Wayne was delighted with him in the Derby, Wayne rides him in all his work. Everything has been right with him all the time and progressing all the time."

Stablemate Anthony Van Dyck will be bidding to win his second Classic of the Flat season if he lines up in the St Leger and a withdrawal from Japan would mean the Derby winner would be installed as favourite.

The three-year-old bypassed Royal Ascot after being beaten in the Irish Derby when sent off as 5/4 favourite. It was a slightly freakish result which saw Sovereign win at odds of 33/1 and it’s an interesting dilemma for O’Brien in terms of which horse goes to the big one at Doncaster.

It would also appear that Technician will be going to the St Leger, with the Martyn Meade-trained horse being prepared for the final classic of the season.

Having been disappointing in a Derby trial at Chester, the horse bounced back to run strongly in a Listed event over ten furlongs at Longchamp recently, with the horse now installed at 20/1 to win the race.

"He was in a similar situation to Advertise with what happened at Chester - we can just forget about that race," said Meade.

"He came out of his last race bouncing.

"I don't want to over-run him. I haven't got an absolute plan, but we'll think about running him in the next couple of weeks or so.

"He ran well enough over 10 furlongs, but ultimately we want to think about pushing him up in distance all the time. We think he's a mile-and-a-half horse."
