Doncaster is preparing to stage the final Classic of the season in Britain with the three-year-old stayers gearing up to tackle the St Leger.

As well as being the longest in distance, the extended 14-furlong contest is the oldest of the five prestigious races and the latest crop will be bidding to emulate last year’s winner Eldar Eldarov, who followed up in this year’s Irish equivalent.

Desert Hero’s victories at Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood has sparked talk of a Royal winner in the year of King Charles III’s coronation, although it looks set to be a competitive renewal with Aidan O’Brien and John & Thady Gosden fielding leading contenders.

You can run the rule over our St Leger odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

Arrest is the favourite with Paddy Power for the St Leger after Frankie Dettori opted to ride the dual Group 3 winner following the ground at final declarations being reported as soft.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained Continuous is next in our betting for the Classic after an emphatic victory in the Great Voltigeur at York.

Gregory is also prominent in the market as the Queen’s Vase scorer bids to follow in the hooves of last year’s winner Eldar Eldarov.
