The St Leger is the oldest of the five Classic races in Britain, having first been run way back in 1776. The honours boards at Doncaster are littered with the names of all-time greats in the sport of horse racing, and punters can look forward to a fascinating renewal of the Leger later this month.

For much of the build-up, Irish Derby winner Santiago had sat atop the betting. However, after a sway of support over the last week, Pyledriver has jumped to the head of the betting.

William Muir's star has enjoyed a fairytale rise to prominence this season. Either side of a run in the Derby, William Muir's star has secured hugely impressive wins in both the King Edward VII Stakes and the Great Voltigeur - a race which is seen as a key trial for the St Leger.

2020 St Leger Runners

Santiago was last seen running over two miles at Glorious Goodwood, finishing third behind Stradivarius and Nayef Road in the Goodwood Cup. Aidan O'Brien's colt lost nothing in defeat that day, and will still rival Pyledriver for favouritism right up until the off.

Like Pyledriver, Hukum also scored at Royal Ascot, winning the King George V Stakes Handicap. Owen Burrow's colt then produced a superb performance to win the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury, and he was the only other entrant sitting on a price lower than 10/1.

That was until the seven-day entry-stage today, when it was revealed that Galileo Chrome has been supplemented into this Classic by Joseph O'Brien. Galileo Chrome is unbeaten in three starts this term, and travels to Doncaster on the back of an emphatic Listed success over 13 furlongs.

English King was well-beaten at Epsom, and didn't enhance his Classic changes with a fourth-place finish in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood. Subjectivist finished ahead of English King that day, and warmed up for a tilt at the St Leger with a 15-length triumph over this trip in the March Stakes last month.

As expected, both Love and Serpentine were removed from the St Leger field today. Aidan O'Brien's chances now lie in the hands of Tiger Moth and Dawn Patrol, who finished second and third behind Santiago in the Irish Derby. Mythical also represents Ballydoyle.

Other notable runners include Andrew Slattery's Sunchart, Geoffrey Freer runner-up Max Vega, Berkshire Rocco, Mohican Heights and the once-raced Tyson Fury, who'll be looking to land a knock-out blow to the bookies on Saturday.
