St Leger day 2017

The last of the classics for 2017 will be run at Doncaster on Saturday over 2800m with a very good field.

Capri won the Irish Derby and has been destined for this race as a result by Aidan O'Brien with Ryan Moore booked for the ride. 7/2 is not bad value if you can get it. Sir Michael Stoute has been building Crystal Ocean up to this - Jim Crowley who knows the horse well will be on board and 4/1 is value. Defoe is on 9/2 with the all-conquering Andea Atzeni in the irons and not the roughest is Rekindling owned by Lloyd Williams with the O'Brien brothers and 12/1 a good price.

The going is good to soft at Doncaster. The G2 Park Stakes for the 3y+ horses has a field of 8 for the 1400m contest. Acclaim is on 3/1 together with Home Of The Brave who is by Starspangledbanner. Last year's winner Breton Rock has Andrea Atzeni riding and while he's copped a bit of weight via penalties 6/1 isn't too skinny.


The Champagne Stakes for the 2yo C&G has 8 runners with the field headed by Godolphin-Appleby's Mythical Magic on 9/4. Dream Today is 7/2 and Mark Johnston's runners worth following in this part of the world. The Ballydoyle runner Mendelssohn is 7/1 and worth a bit of e/w.Racing And Sports
