William Hill St Leger Festival

Doncaster Racecourse will host the William Hill St Leger Festival this week, the highlight of which will be Flat Racing’s final Classic of the year, the Group 1 St Leger. Here at Compare Betting Sites we will be previewing each day of the four-day festival, with odds provided by our betting partner and Festival sponsor, William Hill. 

 

1:50 - British Stallion Studs EBF Conditions Stakes (Plus 10) 

 

Lampang is a non-runner in the Festival’s opening race meaning there will be just three runners taking to the stalls. Luzuli, the son of Dubawi, is an odds-on favourite here after impressing on debut at Newmarket. Charlie Appleby’s runner has some intriguing entries ahead of him and will be expected to see off the threat of the far more experienced, Misty Grey. Mark Johnston’s horse has had seven outings since debuting in May, including three Group 2 races. The front-runner has only won one of seven races which is an obvious concern. 

 

Race Odds 

Lazuli – 2/5 

Misty Grey – 10/3 

Brad The Brief – 8/1 

 

2:25 - Pepsi Max Nursery 

 

Mark Johnston won this race last year with Arctic Sound and could go close again this year with Iffraaz. With Frankie Dettori in the saddle, Iffraaz will gain plenty of support in the betting market. He was placed behind stablemate, Misty Grey last time out and the latter’s performance in the day’s opener will give further insight into the potential of Iffraaz. 

 

Joint-favourite, Hariboux, impressed when winning at Newmarket recently but a 10lbs rise for that success could prove too much. The other leading fancy, Embolden, could be the one to beat here. Richard Fahey’s colt is fitted with cheekpieces for her nursery debut having been placed in all three runs so far. 

 

Race Odds 

Hariboux – 4/1 

Embolden – 4/1 

Iffraaz – 11/2 

Owney Madden – 11/2 

Ethic – 11/2 

Modern British Art – 8/1 

Bravo Faisal – 9/1 

 

3:00 - DC Training And Development Services Scarbrough Stakes (Listed) 

 

Tis Marvellous was badly hampered last time out at Beverley and will be expected to bounce straight back. Impressed in consecutive runs at Ascot prior to that. Equilateral will provide the biggest threat to Tis Marvellous after dropping back down in grade. The four-year old was disappointing when finishing sixth of nine in a Group 2 race at The Curragh but commands respect on Group 3 form showed at Newmarket earlier in the year. 

 

Race Odds 

Tis Marvellous – 6/4 

Equilateral – 9/4 

El Astronaute – 5/1 

Queens Gift – 13/2 

Archer’s Dream – 8/1 

 

3:35 - Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes 

 

17 runners will take on this 1m charity race and the betting market shows just how tough this race is to call. Kilbaha Lady is the current favourite but only stablemate, Allux Boy, is rated lower than Nigel Tinkler’s five-year old. The booking of jockey, Kieren Fallon, is a major positive. 

 

One To Go is arguably the form horse of the race and offers excellent value at 15/2. Placed in half of his 20 races to date, Tim Easterby’s three-year old followed up his first win at Beverley last month with a second-place finish in Group 2 company back at the same track. 

 

Dubai Acclaim pulled hard when finishing second at Leicester last time out and will be there or thereabouts based on AW form shown last year. Cheekpieces fitted. 

 

Race Odds 

Kilbaha Lady – 11/2 

Dubai Acclaim – 6/1 

Hammer Gun – 6/1 

Valley of Fire – 13/2 

Kannapolis – 15/2 

Flying Dragon – 15/2 

One To Go – 15/2 

 

4:10 - British EBF Premier Fillies' Handicap 

 

There may be just four runners in this fillies’ handicap but as the betting markets suggest, the race is wide-open. Litigious is likely to go off as the favourite for John Gosden but you could make a claim for any of these runners. Preference is for the Godolphin horse, Asoof, who runs for the in-form yard in the UK for the first time this year. With Cieren Fallon on board, Asoof gains a 5lbs weight advantage over the others. First run over 1m3f which could be a negative. 

 

Race Odds 

Litigious – 11/10 

Asoof – 10/3 

Makawee – 7/2 

Maybe Today – 5/1 

 

4:45 - William Hill Leading Racecourse Bookmaker Conditions Stakes 

 

Another small yet competitive field in this conditions stakes. Many of the major players are returning from lengthy lay-offs including race favourite, Loxley. William Buick’s four-year old won four of his first six starts but has been seen just once in 2019 and that was way back in March. Gelded since but wins this based on 2018 form. 

 

Race Odds 

Loxley – 11/8 

Willie John – 9/4 

Walkinthesand – 9/2 

Elwazir – 9/1 

Fox Tal – 10/1 

 

5:20 - Parkes Bros Roofing Contractors Handicap 

 

The day ends with its biggest field as 18 runners get set to take on the wide-open handicap. Pea Shooters was runner-up in this last year but odds of 40/1 highlight how much more competitive this year’s race is. Race favourite, Roundhay Park, has won four times over 5f but the last of those successes was back in 2018. With each-way bets paying out four places you may be better suited looking for value at a bigger price. 

 

Two disappointing runs in August makes Nibras Again easy to oppose. However, at 20/1 he could be in with a chance based on the form showed earlier in the summer. Second place finishes at Newmarket and Ayr came either side of an impressive win at York in a 19-runner Class 3 Handicap in June. 

 

Race Odds 

Roundhay Park – 9/2 

Abel Handy – 6/1 

Line Of Reason – 7/1 

Bowson Fred – 7/1 

Daschas – 9/1 

War Whisper – 11/1 

Han Solo Berger – 11/1
