Idaho heads Leger fifteen

Idaho, one of seven entries for Aidan O'Brien, heads 15 horses left in the Ladbrokes St Leger at the six-day stage.

Idaho: St Leger favourite

The final Classic of the season, run at Doncaster on Saturday, looks set to contain a very short-priced favourite in the shape of Idaho, who is currently 10/11 with the sponsors.

A winner of the Great Voltigeur at York last time, Idaho was also third in the Investec Derby at Epsom and second in the Irish Derby at the Curragh.

Housesofparliament, Sword Fighter, The Major General, Unicorn, Kellstorm and Triplicate are O'Brien's other possibles, while Jim Bolger's Twilight Payment strengthens the Irish challenge.

The two highest-profile horses left out at the six-day stage were John Gosden's Wings Of Desire and David Simcock's Algometer, fourth and seventh respectively at Epsom.

Gosden still has a strong challenger, though, in the shape of Muntahaa who impressively won a Chester handicap off a mark of 108 against his elders last time.

Red Verdon, the Derby sixth, is in there for Ed Dunlop, while Ventura Storm and Ormito could represent Richard Hannon and Andrew Balding.

The Tartan Spartan, Harrison and Harbour Law complete the entries.
