2020 St Leger Free Tips and Trends

The William Hill-sponsored St Leger is the oldest of the five British flat racing Classics, as well as the longest in trip. Run at Doncaster racecourse and over a distance of 1m6f it’s a race for 3 year-olds only.

This contest is targeted by horses that ran in that season’s Great Voltigeur, with 8 of the last 18 winners having ran in that York race before winning this, while in recent years with seen 8 winning favourites in the last 18 runnings.

Look out for John Gosden-trained horses as this powerful Newmarket stable has won the race four times in the last 18 years, while top Irish handler – Aidan O’Brien has saddled the winner of the St Leger six times, including 3 of the last 7 seasons with Leading Light, Capri and Kew Gardens. Also note any Godolphin-owned entries as they these famous blue silks have won the final English Classic of the season a staggering six times!

Here at RACING AHEAD we’ve got all the key stats ahead of the 2020 renewal – this year run on Saturday 12th September.
