Are you ready for the St Leger Stakes this weekend? We certainly are, and we cannot wait to share our St Leger tips with you prior to the event. On that note, we have taken a very close look at the ante-post markets at the UK’s top bookmakers to develop these tips. We’ve also looked at the history of this race, the possible runners, and the odds to create the most suitable St Leger tips ahead of Saturday, September 10th.
Note that through the tips we are about to share, the odds are correct at the time of writing. However, as the event draws closer, we have no doubt that the odds will shift based on breaking news and betting activity. But that doesn’t stop us from sharing a bunch of free tips for the St Leger Stakes later next week. And with that clarification taken care of, let us highlight the top tips that we have for this Grade One race on September 10th.
Top St Leger tips for the race this Saturday
Before we jump into our St Leger tips, let us give a quick rundown of the race. This is a Grade One event that is scheduled to be held at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday, September 10th. The race will begin at 13:15, UK time, and it is considered to be one of England’s ‘five classics’. In fact, the St Leger Stakes is also the last race to be held as part of the Triple Crown, with the previous two races being the 2,000 Guinea Stakes and The Derby. So naturally, it’s a huge event for both participants and fans.
As for the structure of the race, the distance is just over 1 mile and 6 furlongs. This is a little shy of 3km, so it is one of the longer races out there. And for participants, St Leger is only open for three-year-old thoroughbreds (fillies and colts). The winner of this race bags a cash prize of more than £400,000 and the overall prize purse is over £700,000. Needless to say, that’s a big payday for the winner!
Anyway, now that we’ve covered the race in terms of what it has to offer, let’s get back to the St Leger tips! So without further ado, here are our tips for this enormous event:
If we had to provide St Leger tips for an outright winner in this event, it’s good to be New London. This horse is looking like the strongest participant in the field, and he comes into this one off the back of an impressive victory at Goodwood. In fact, he also produced a first-place finish in the race prior to Goodwood too. So New London is obviously in terrific form, hence he is the overwhelming favourite with odds of 1.72. The next favourite according to the bookies is Eldar Eldarov, and this horse has odds of 8.00 to win.
This shows you how much of a favourite New London actually is, so we are going with this horse as our outright winner for the St Leger tips.
Picking an outright winner is all well and good, but this isn’t the only way to bag a win in horse racing. You have plenty of other markets to potentially back, which brings us to the next two St Leger tips that we have for September 10th. Given that many top bookmakers are handing out extra place payouts for St Leger, we’ve chosen to go with Secret State as an each-way wager. If you look at the last five races for this horse, there are 4 wins and one 2nd place finish. So the chances of Secret State achieving a place finish is very high, in our opinion.
As for the pre-race odds on this horse, they are currently at 9.00. This shows that there is plenty of value in this market, hence the tips provided.
The last of our St Leger tips relates to a show bet, and we are going with Hoo Ya Mal for this prediction. Now, the reason for this is that Hoo Ya Mal hasn’t failed to achieve a top-three finish in any race in his entire career. We should also point out that when competing against New London at Goodwood just a few weeks ago, he also finished 3rd. Of course, in a show bet, the horse only needs to finish in the top three. As long as this happens, a payout will be on the cards.
And for the ante-post odds for this horse, they are currently at 9.00. Note that this is for a ‘win bet’, and the odds to show are adjusted to suit the wager type.
