2023 St Leger Betting Tips, Best Bookmakers & Free Bets
This Group One, run over 1m 6f, was first run at Doncaster racecourse way back in 1776, and has been won by many of the greatest middle-distance horses flat racing has ever produced.
The St Leger is the final Classic run in Britain, meaning it's only open to three-year-olds. It's also the last leg of the Triple Crown, which features the 2000 Guineas and the Epsom Derby for colts, and the 1000 Guineas and Epsom Oaks for fillies.
