It is a horse race that many punters look forward to each year, and this year much like every other year the Irish St Leger will be being run over at the Curragh and the day and time of that race is on the 16th of September at 16:30.
Therefore with still few days to go until we find out which horse, jockey and trainer are going to have their named added to the list of winners of that very prestigious race, what I want to do today is to give you a quick update on the state of the ante post betting markets on that race.
For there is no doubt in my mind there will be plenty of punters in both the UK and Ireland and probably form much further afield that will be eager to get a bet placed on that race, and will of course want to ensure they are getting some value on the odds they will be taking too!
It is currently the NetBet betting site that are offering some of the very best odds I have come across on the Irish St Leger, and with that in mind all of the odds I will be quoting below are available right now on their early betting market for this race, but they are of course subject to change at any time!
Flag of Honour Favourite to Win the Irish St Leger
It is of course Flag of Honour that is something of a rock solid favourite to win the Irish St Leger this year, and if you are of the mind it will win this race you can back odds currently of 13/8 on it doing so at NetBet.
I am also aware that many punters much prefer backing the second favourite too in races such as this one, and if that is what you are thinking of doing, then the horse that you should be backing is Latrobe currently available at odds of 11/4!
Best Each-Way Terms on the Irish St Leger
There is of course the chance that instead of placing an outright win type of bet on this major Irish horse race, you will instead fancy placing an each-way bet, and if so keep in mind that true to form, NetBet are offering some of the most generous terms to all each-way punters.
They are paying out to three places at one third the win odds, and as such that does mean there are plenty of other horses that you may fancy backing to at the very least get placed!
As far as just which horses will be worth backing, well Weekender is chalked up and on offer at odds of 7/2, Idaho is expected to run a good race and give everything when making its ways around the course at that horses odds are 9/2
Twilight Payment does also come into the reckoning too at 15/2 and I do know that some punters are convinced that Southern France currently on offer at NetBet are 9/1 is in with a fair chance of winning the remainder of the field however are available at odds of at least 18/1.
