Quick suggestions on St Leger Saturday

Very quick suggestions for St Leger Day...

4/1 Blue Bunting for the Doncaster Classic (3.10) has disappeared but 7/2 still represents a value play against favourite Sea Moon.

Only six go in the Irish Field St Leger; 12/1 about Red Cadeaux would have made some each-way appeal if eight had made the line-up.

Tomorrow there are two long distances races with several NH types taking part. In the 8.20 at Kempton I'm going to take a small each-way interest in Katies Tuitor. This one obliged for my 50th birthday celebrations at Kempton when in the care of Brendan Duke and won the 2008 Totescoop6 Summer Handicap Hurdle at Market Rasen when trained by Charlie Mann..He's clearly had his problems but hinted at a return to form for current connections last time out; the gelding prefers racing right-handed and the stable are going well.

In the Bath 5.00 race Waldsee has fewer miles on the clock than some of these and rates a tentative each-way suggestion.

They took no prisoners up front in the St. Leger; Masked Marvel (15/2) won in a course record time, beating the Michael Owen bred Brwon Panther (15/2) three lengths. Selection Blue Bunting (7/2) was held up but struggled from a long way out, eventually finishing seventh.

Red Cadeaux (12/1) came home third.

Walsdsee (12/1) ran a disappointing race at Bath but Katies Tuitor more than made up for that performance, winning at 16/1 (opened 25/1 on course).

Once every blue moon it's nice to know you can still pull off a stunt... ;)
