Explosive Boy Favourite For Irish St Leger Glory

The 2021 Irish St Leger kicks off on Thursday evening at Limerick Stadium and it’s no surprise to see the 2021 BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby finalist Explosive Boy as the early frontrunner.

This Patrick Guilfoyle trained superstar has had an incredible year and…

Now the National Produce Stakes and Race Of Champions winner has been made the 6/1 ante-post favourite for the €30,000 event.

This speedster has plenty of rivals to worry about however, with Liam Dowling’s brilliant servant Ballymac Wild the 12/1 joint second favourite.

Next up is Thomas O’Donovan’s One Time Only, who was a tremendous winner of the Irish Laurels last weekend at Curraheen Park. Thomas is bidding to win back-to-back St Leger titles with Epic Hero rated as a 16/1 chance.

The fast Jacob Tashadelek is 14/1 alongside the Jennifer O’Donnell trained Scooby Princess, Karol Ramsbottom’s Deadly Destroyer and Pat Buckley’s English Greyhound Derby champ Deerjet Sydney.

The consistent Beach Avenue is 16/1 alongside kennel buddies Knocknaboul Syd and Singalong Sally. The latter was runner-up in the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby to Susie Sapphire but faces a tough opening heat as she meets Deerjet Sydney, Romeo Magico, Epic Hero and Ballyhimikin Pip. However, Sally wears the red jacket which will suit her perfectly.
