13 horses remain in the 2017 William Hill St Leger

Doncaster Racecourse and William Hill are delighted to announce that, at the five day stage, 13 horses remain entered for the 2017 William Hill St Leger, which takes place on Saturday 16 September.

Tony Kenny, of sponsors, William Hill commented, “We’re absolutely delighted with this field for the William Hill St Leger on Saturday.  As is reflected in our prices, this is set to be one of the most competitive renewals in years.  We make Sir Michael Stoute’s Crystal Ocean 3/1 favourite for the race following his win at Goodwood”

With the four day William Hill St Leger Festival getting underway on Wednesday, Clerk of the Course Roderick Duncan has commented, “Following sixteen millimetres of rain overnight on Sunday, the going is now officially soft, heavy in places.  We do expect a couple of windy days on Tuesday and Wednesday, however it is forecast to be dry from Thursday onwards, with temperatures of 17oC, plus.”
