The St. Leger, the oldest and final classic of the season takes place this Saturday. The declarations have been announced, and there is a favourite at the top of the betting.
Yesterday, John Gosden announced that Lah Ti Dar will take her place in Saturday’s feature and replaced Aiden O’Brien’s Kew Gardens as the market leader.
The unbeaten filly won at Newbury and Newmarket earlier in the year, and returned after an injury setback with an emphatic 10-length success at York’s Ebor festival last month.
Kew Gardens, who won the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris in July, leads a five-strong force from Ireland and Aiden O’Brien’s yard – with Southern France, The Pentagon, Nelson and Zabriskie the others.
So, who are the contenders for the St Leger on Saturday?
