A record prize fund of £600,000 is up for grabs in the Ladbrokes St. Leger Stakes a week on Saturday.

The four-day St. Leger Festival begins a week today (September 11) at Doncaster, culminating in the oldest Classic race in the world, the famous Group 1 contest, for top-class three-year-olds. The main event was first held at Doncaster in 1776.

Possible contenders include Libertarian (runner-up in the Investec Derby), Excess Knowledge, Galileo Rock, Leading Light, Foundry and Eye Of The Storm. The ace is contested over one mile, six furlongs and 132 yards.
