888sport-logo300x150The latest classic Group One flat race of 2017 goes off at Doncaster this weekend with the St Leger, an event that dates way back to 1776. At the end of a great flat season, there is lots to enjoy in this one and from a betting point of view, there is good value to be found in a tight market.

Current ante post betting shows joint favourites with Capri and Crystal Ocean just edging Defoe into third place but for those favouring Capri, there is a new customer deal from 888Sport with a price boost of 400% up for grabs.

The Betting

In the standard markets, Capri has been given a top price of 4/1 with bet365 and William Hill while Crystal Ocean can also be found at those same best odds of 4/1 with SportingBet. Defoe follows and while many bookies are also listing that 4/1 price, SportingBet come in with the best of 5/1 from across the sportsbooks.

It’s obviously a tight market but if you were favouring Capri, that enhanced odds figure of 16/1 with 888Sport has to be worth considering. If you’re interested, here’s what you need to do from this point.

Get on Board

We mentioned that this is a promotion for new customers to 888Sport so you can proceed if you don’t already hold an account here. Sign up via the link and you’ll find that the registration process is a fast and easy one, taking around a couple of minutes or so.

888 will then take you to their cashier where you should deposit a minimum of £10.00 using either a debit or credit card. Funds should clear straight away and you are then free to stake between £5.00 and £10.00 on Capri to win the St Leger at Doncaster racecourse on Saturday September 16, 2017.


If you are successful and the nominated horse wins the race you will receive profits at 888Sport’s book price straight back into your account – currently these are also at the best odds figure of 4/1. Following on, the balance will arrive as free bet tokens within 72 hours.

Those are the specific terms relating to this new customer offer but please feel free to check all of the ts and cs to make sure you are happy before going ahead.

Three-way Contest?

Obviously there are other contenders in this race but the bookies feel it is between just three horses. Why, then, should you consider Capri above the other contenders in this renewal? Trainer Aidan O’Brien is behind the horse and that’s a very good endorsement to start things off while the 3 year old’s record reads four wins from eight starts overall.

That record includes a first place at the Curragh in July last time out and while there is strong competition at the top of the field, many punters believe that form and momentum is with Capri ahead of Saturday’s big race.

It’s a gamble of course but that’s why we’re all here and if you’re looking for extra value on this horse, 16/1 on Capri to win the St Leger for new customers to 888Sport will be tough to match.
