    Well done winners. Glad I didn’t lay him as I was tempted over the last 48 hours. Stable vibe stopped me.

    Can’t agree with anyone claiming this was a good race though and even saw a few say he’s next years top mile and a half horse. Really?

    I’d have Japan to beat Logician every day of the week. In fact, if they weren’t carrying a live contender in him for Longchamp, he’d have won that today imo. That being said, perhaps Japan is too good for a Leger

    I went to post on here the other day that I’ve backed Sir Dragonet @ 5.4 on the exchange but I didn’t see a St Leger thread so thought I’d wait til today.

    I really think it’s a poor race yet again and, for a ‘classic’ it’s a real shame it gets such a poor turnout year on year.

    Anyway, Logician beat a glorified handicapper in Constantinople in the Great Voltigeir (I backed him that day thinking he may beat Logician as it goes). I think Evens is simply because of the time being decent that day and the fact Gosden likes him. With it being in the Frankel/Enable colours and an unbeaten potential superstar profile to the casual Saturday punter, I suspect he will go off odds on. I think that’s poor value.

    Even looking at it ignoring my 5.4 on Sir Dragonet, I think the 5/2 on offer with Skybet and Boylesports is still very fair. He’s classy, looks a very likely stayer, is said to be working well at home and has genuine group 1 form. On form, he ought to be favourite here. Although I understand why he isn’t of course. To me, he really should be about 15/8 at the absolute max but a general 7/4 shot.

    Il Paradiso is a funny old price because he was almost unthought if by most for this before serving it up to Stradivarius at York which instantly made him a lively one for this. It took longer than expected, but the plunge that occurs every year in the fortnight before this race came and it came for him. I can see why but I wouldn’t have him in front of the other main O’Brien candidate – as jockey bookings suggests too.

    Sir Ron Priestley has looked a Leger horse all year but it’s a bit of an indictment of the race that he’s fourth favourite. Surely Sir Dragonet or Logician will have too much class? That being said, being a guaranteed stayer and battler like SRP is very much a plus for all races but especially one as gruelling as the Leger.

    Dashing Willoughby is another grueller so the test should suit him and I’d prefer him tonTechnician at a similar price.

    Nayef Road surely isn’t going to be good enough to win but might sneak a place and Western Australia continues to run in every ITV middle-distance group race for three year olds.

    Without a shadow of a doubt, it’s Sir Dragonet for me in the 2019 St Leger

    Thanks guys! Been wanting to win this comp for a while as I won it a few years back when I first joined but not managed to make the podium since! Really pleased to get the winners and the players at the right time and the right way round.

    Silent Assassins deserves a mention as he finished +33 points too but just didn’t get enough weeks in to make the final table. Great effort from him nonetheless. And of course well done to John and Geoff.

    Finally, thanks to Pat for running the comp. It’s very much appreciated here and I’ll be back on the 21st September trying to do the flat/jumps double. B-)

    Backed two outright on this thread last season which were the Chiefs and the Rams. Both at 16s. Both got the conference final and both failed to win the SuperBowl.

    Haven’t had an outright bet but I’ve played trebles through the card tomorrow on the 13 games.

    The two I liked most was:
    Rams -5.5 handicap against Carolina @ 6/4
    Falcons to beat the Vikings @ 17/10
