2017 VRC St Leger Field & Odds: Miss Strathallan Favourite

The ANZAC Day line-up at Flemington features two black-type events including the $200,000 Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) for the three-year-old stayers.

The set weights plus penalties clash, a very early lead-up for potential Group 1 VRC Derby (2500m) hopes back at the track during the spring’s Melbourne Cup Carnival, features a dozen runners this season.

Heading the latest VRC St Leger odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at $3.60, out from an earlier quote of $2.80, is the Lindsay Park-trained daughter of Sebring Miss Strathallan.

The filly is drawn out in gate 10, but has plenty of time to overcome the alley as she chases her first win over further than a mile.

Miss Strathallan was last seen finishing just a length away second to Lycurgus in the Listed Ladbrokes Galilee Series Final (2400m) over the mile and a half at Caulfield on April 8 and gets in on the 54kg minimum again on Tuesday.

The Galilee Final winner Lycurgus is again the danger, the in-form Danny O’Brien-trained Star Witness gelding occupying the second line of VRC St Leger betting at $4.20.

Drawn one on the inside of the favoured filly in gate nine with Daniel Moor retaining the ride, Lycurgus has won two of his three latest starts.

He only has to extend out a further 400m from last start to enjoy successive Melbourne autumn victories and even carrying the 57kg top weight will be hard to hold out again on Tuesday.

In an open affair there are a further three single-figure fancies including the Darren Weir-trained filly Parthesia ($6) in gate two.

Winner of the Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) at Launceston back in February, the daughter of Raise The Flag chases her first turf triumph since and comes off a third to Lycurgus in the traditional lead-up from earlier in the month.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 for the win are the rails-drawn Baykool ($7) for Mornington-based horseman Pat Carey coming off a 2000m Ballarat win from late March and the James Cummings-trained Rock And Swing ($8.50).

A son of Fastnet Rock, Rock And Swing is down notably in grade this week after three straight Group runs on the trot in Sydney.

The latest saw him cross a mid-field fifth behind the now 2017 Queensland Derby favourite Mongolian Wolf in the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m), a run he could improve on getting a firmer track on Tuesday.
