Race Preview - 2018 St Leger Stakes

Exciting filly Lah Ti Dar has added some real spice to this year's St Leger and she heads the betting for the oldest classic.

Racing and Sports' Priceline agrees, finding the unbeaten filly on top in it's assessment, after her hugely impressive return from a setback at York.

Assessed Prices: Lah Ti Dar $2.50; Kew Gardens $4.00; Old Persian $6.00; Loxley $13.00.

Lah Ti Dar rates highly and, having had three unbeaten and largely untested races, she has the fewest cards face up here.

The early betting doesn't miss that point and it doesn't miss the Group 1 winner in the field, Kew Gardens, either.

Kew Gardens stayed really well to win the Grand Prix De Paris and he backed that up under a penalty in a well run Great Voltiguer at York last time.

Kew Gardens carried a penalty and started 7/2 against Old Persian 7/1 but the latter won it really well and the gap shouldn't be so large as it is according to the Racing and Sports Priceline.

Double figure odds look to undersell Old Persian's chances of landing this for Charlie Appleby and the stable has another credible chance in the form of Loxley who brings something new to the table and is interesting given that.

Suggested Bet: Back Old Persian in the St Leger. Racing And Sports
