It's all Lah Ti Dar for the St Leger

John Gosden's three-year-old has received some serious market support.

The St Leger is finally here on Saturday and although Kew Gardens has remained top of the market, Lah Ti Dar has received plenty of backing over the last 48 hours.

The three-year-old is still very unexposed after just three races to her name, but she has won each and every one of them, comfortably as well. Although odds-on last time out at York, she blew away Class 1 horses and stole the show, hacking up by over ten lengths.

Almost 28% of all bets have been placed on Lah Ti Dar prevailing on Saturday since Sunday and as a result, she has shortened in the market from as big as 7-1 only a few days ago into 3-1, although 7-2 remains with a handful of firms.

Looking at the market, she is now the clear second favourite behind Kew Gardens, who has received 22% of all bets in the same amount of time.

Surprisingly, Dee Ex Bee, best priced at 12-1, has also receive 20% of bets in the last 48 hours. Although competing in some of the highest rated flat races this season, the three-year-old has never got close to Kew Gardens, finishing 3 ½ lengths behind her at Newmarket before finishing over 4 lengths behind at Longchamp.

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: "Lah Ti Dah was rumoured to be missing the St Leger in preference for a tilt at the Prix Vermeille at Longchamps, in order to prepare for the Arc, but she has been left as one of the runners at this stage.

This could suggest that Enable's win at the weekend has changed trainer John Gosden's plans, and punters have been quick to react."
