It’s the final British Classic of the Flat season at Doncaster on Saturday, the St Leger. The card from Town Moor also includes the Champagne Stakes and Park Stakes, both of which are of Group Two status.

Here are tips for all seven races on the card on Saturday.

1.50pm – Betfred Champagne Stakes (Group 2 - 7f)

Just five runners are set to feature in this year’s Champagne Stakes, and the unbeaten ROSALLION looks the likeliest winner. After victories at Newbury (6½f) and Ascot (7f) respectively, the latter being a four-length Listed success, Richard Hannon’s colt has shown he has a big future ahead and that he is the one to beat on this occasion.

Selection: Rosallion

2.25pm – Betfred Portland (Heritage Handicap) (5½f)

CALL ME GINGER goes into the Portland bidding to complete a hat-trick. He won this race last year off a mark of 89 and looks like he has come back into form at exactly the right time to replicate his success from just a 2lb higher mark. Jim Goldie’s experienced sprinter has been handed an excellent draw and Amie Waugh helps the cause again by claiming 5lb.

Selection: Call Me Ginger

3.00pm – Betfred Park Stakes (Group 2 - 7f)

It has been an excellent season for AUDIENCE who landed the Criterion Stakes at Newmarket earlier this summer. He had to settle for the runner-up spot at this level last time out in the City Of York Stakes behind Kinross. A repeat of that performance should make John and Thady Gosden’s runner hard to beat in this one, as the ratings suggest.

Selection: Audience

3.35pm – Betfred St Leger Stakes (Group 1 - 1m6½f)

Aidan O’Brien is set to saddle four of this year’s St Leger field, and the plan for the Ballydoyle team is likely to be to set the race up for CONTINUOUS. The Great Voltigeur winner will probably be coming from the back of the field, just like he did last month at York. With his stablemates in the contest to ensure there is an honest gallop, the race should be run to suit the son of Heart’s Cry once again.

Selection: Continuous

4.10pm – PJ Towey Construction Handicap (1m2f)

SYMBOL OF LIGHT won three consecutive races last season. He made a return to action in the latest campaign at Newcastle in June, going down by a neck, in what was his first outing since having a wind operation. Julie Camacho’s gelding remains open to improvement and he should come on for that run at Newcastle.

Selection: Symbol Of Light

4.45pm – British EBF 40 th Anniversary Maiden Stakes (1m)

BELLUM JESTUM is one of only a few runners who have had the benefit of two racecourse appearances already. Andrew Balding’s colt stepped up from his debut outing to finish second at Newmarket (1m) last month, when the son of Sea The Stars was staying on strongly at HQ. Based on that last run, he looks the one to beat in this maiden.

Selection: Bellum Justum

5.20pm – Hippo Pro 3 Sealant Handicap (1m)

John Quinn’s runner EMPIRESTATEOFMIND produced his best run of the season when finishing third of ten runners at Ascot (1m) in the Shergar Cup Mile on his latest outing. The five-year-old runs off the same mark of 98, which gives him a great chance of getting his nose in front for the first time this year.

Selection: Empirestateofmind
