It’s the final classic of the season as the St. Leger takes centre stage at Doncaster. All eyes will be on Town Moor we look forward to a 7 race card and I’m hoping we can find a winner ahead of it all.
The St. Leger needs no introduction. The final classic on British soil this season looks like a competitive renewal on paper. Co-favourites Pyledriver and Santiago look strong, and between the two, I am leaning towards the chances of the latter. Last seen when finishing 3rd at Goodwood, Santiago’s connections would have been happy with that run. Prior to that he won the Irish Derby, and I was most impressed with his win in the Queen’s Vase over the same trip as today. I think that enhances his chances, and despite Galileo Chrome posing a danger, Santiago is my selection.
