2015 St Leger Betting Preview PT 3

Look for Storm The Stars trading anywhere from 10/3 all the way down to a 5/2 margin right now with a number of top European bookmakers. It's also worth watching his volume fluctuate on the exchange – particularly during the in-running portion here since there is a lot more room to play with than most of basic flat races.


Bondi Beach is one of the more unknown quantities in this contest and he's been out four times exclusively and has acquitted himself well in each contest with 1212 being his string of results with that last loss coming in the aforementioned York race for Storm The Stars – one that some felt was controversially awarded to him in lieu of Bondi Beach.

Joseph O'Brien was in the irons that day and you can expect him to get the call again here but it looks like they may not have completely figured this horse out yet since there is obviously plenty of extra in this one they just need to figure out how best to coax it out. As good a trainer as O'Brien is, you can perhaps assume that this one still might need another race against top quality company before he really figures out who he is.

He boasts an entry in the Long Distance Cup at Ascot and it should be noted that he is forgoingthe KPMG Enterprise Stakes (which is only a Group 3) at Leopardstown in order to contest the Leger at his 10/3 margin so they obviously think he's good for a chance here.

Bondi Beach does show significant price variance though depending on the bookmaker that you are wagering with. Some have posted him as high as a 5/1 margin for St Leger glory while others have him in the mix at around 4/1.

Fields of Athenry is another Irish-based Group 3 winner who is coming out to put up a big push here and potentially factor into the placings of this massive Group 1 classic. The Galileo colt, out of a Danehill mare, took the Ballyroon stakes at Leopardstown over a field of five and then couldn't quite muster up the type of run you'd want to see coming into the Leger when finishing fifth from 19 at York in the Ebor.
