Yorkshire St Leger
Final - October 9 - Live on Sky Sports 2
Farley Rio produced a scintillating display when recording the fastest time in the semi-finals of the Yorkshire St Leger, but the Kevin Boon-trained raider will look to emulate that performance on Thursday night when he heads to Doncaster to compete in the final of the 661m showpiece, which will be live on Sky Sports 2.
Millwards Teddy has been drawn in trap six for the Blue Riband event and will be aiming to keep away from trouble in the early part of the six-bend contest, but he was beaten by Droopys Hawaii in the semi-finals and that pair should put up another cracking duel, but the latter has to contend with a trap three draw, which may not be ideal.
Rearguard Bond has been handed the red jacket for the final and will fancy his chances of landing a blow, but outsider Baliff Turbo showed great early pace in the semi-final and from trap two could well hinder the inside runner's path to the first bend in an intriguing inside draw.
Romantic Rambo stayed on eye-catchingly into second place behind Farley Rio in the semi-final and will be aiming to produce a blistering final lap and get on terms in what is a fascinating renewal of the staying contest and is a wide open betting heat for punters to enjoy.
