St. Leger Stakes odds and starting time

The St. Leger Stakes race will begin at 3:35, though this is subject to change.

The betting favourite is still, by far, Hurricane Lane, who sits at 8/11. This is no surprise, given his Irish Derby triumph. Ottoman Emperor is in second at 7/1, but the original second favourite, Lone Eagle, is out with an injury.

Mojo Star’s odds have shortened somewhat to 8/1 (from 10/1), but is still considered an outside bet. Meanwhile, Sir Lucan’s odds have lengthened from 12/1 to 16/1 over the past week. Likewise, The Mediterranean’s odds have gone up from from 14/1 to an unsavoury 22/1. Newcomer High Definition has been given odds of 9/1.
