It’s been a wild ride but the end of the Flat season is fast approaching. The St Leger at Doncaster is among the bucketload of quality races on the home straight so hold on to your hats, folks, because this one’s going to be electric.
The oldest of the English Classics, the St Leger is a proper stamina test as the runners and riders are tested over a distance of 1m 6f and 115y, making it the longest of the five races as well.
Below you’ll find all the key details you need ahead of the big race at Doncaster including Paddy Power’s latest odds.

Hurricane Lane goes to post hunting a hat-trick of Group 1 wins after success in the Irish Derby and Grand Prix de Paris.
Ottoman Emperor has been prominent in the betting after victory at Goodwood in the Gordon Stakes while 50/1 Epsom Derby runner-up Mojo Star has been backed to stay over the longer trip by trainer Richard Hannon.
High Definition – supplemented at a cost of £50,000 despite a disappointing season – is one of four runners for Aidan O’Brien.
St Leger 2021 Prize Money
A prize pot worth £700,000 is on offer in the 2021 running of the St Leger, with £421,355 going to winning connections, making it the second most valuable of this year’s English Classics behind the Epsom Derby. Lucrative.
The cash is a major uplift on last year’s prize money as the winner, Galileo Chrome, earned £198,485 for being first past the post.
If Hurricane Lane justifies favouritism it would take Frankel’s son’s earnings for the season towards the £1.5m mark. A cash cow for owners Godolphin.
