2015 St Leger Betting Tips PT 1

The last English classic race of the season is set to unfold in just two weeks time as the St Leger Stakes will run at Doncaster. As one of the longest running races in the UK pattern - and the benchmark staying race that has spawned local equivalents all over the world - this years iteration should be another great tribute to the longstanding tradition of impressive St Leger winners. 


With no British Triple Crown on the line at Doncaster this year (as usual) and no genuinely prohibitive favourite, this years iteration looks like a really exciting one and we have a pretty intense battle developing between the two leading fancies for the race while a few others trade at single digits as well. 

It will be really interesting to see the outcome of how the odds actually wind up settling down but you can expect some pretty interesting movement as we get closer to the race and start to find out which horses will have advantages because of favourable ground once the forecast gets a bit clearer. 

Order of the Stars is getting the edge from the bookmakers with an 11/4 price tag while a couple have him floated at a 3/1 price tag. The Coolmore colt is by Galileo out of a Gone West mare and he steps up from a Group 3 at the Curragh where he stormed home over Sea Moon when sent off as the 4/6 favourite in the Irish St Leger. 

It wasn’t so much the quality of the race but the manner of the victory where he wound up with a seven and a half length margin of victory over his nearest finisher at the Curragh. 

Prior to that one, he was able to put up a five and a half length victory when sent off at a 1/5 price tag over the likes of Chapter Seven in Her Majesty’s Plate - a race that runs at Down Royal and pays out a mere 10k despite sounding like a relatively important race. His seasonal debut only came in late June when he was beaten a short head by Bondi Beach when sent off at 4/1 in the Group 3 Curragh Cup.
