The final Classic of the season gets underway on Saturday, with the St Leger featuring tomorrow afternoon at Doncaster.

The action kicks off in South Yorkshire at 1:15 with a 1m Nursery Handicap and concludes at 5:10 with a 1m Handicap.

Our team have taken a look through the card in hope of pinning down some value across the contests

Here are three picks to consider for the final day of the St Leger Festival.

BAYSIDE BOY – 2:20 DONCASTER (8/1 – William Hill)

Under the guidance of Roger Varian, Bayside Boy could well be overpriced in a four-runner renewal of the Group 2 Champagne Stakes.

The New Bay colt has only made two starts to date, breaking his maiden at Newbury before finishing second in Listed company in the Denford Stakes.

The two-year-old may have more in the locker and he could prove he belongs in this company, with his price of 8/1 holding some appeal in this small field.

INTERPRETATION – 3:35 DONCASTER (14/1 – Various)

One of four Aidan O’Brien runners in the St Leger, Interpretation could be of some interest in the 1m6f contest.

The Galileo colt has only made four career starts, winning three of them including the Listed Vinnie Roe Stakes at Leopardstown.

He will need to show progress in this company but he could have more in the locker, with his 14/1 price tag potentially hinting at each-way value.

AMETIST – 5:10 DONCASTER (9/1 – William Hill)

Only 2lbs above his last winning mark, Ametist could prove to be of some value in the one-mile handicap for William Haggas.

The gelding was in flying form at the beginning of the season, winning his first three starts for his connections.

He has suffered some heavy defeats at Newmarket and York since but he looks at a decent mark now, with his price of 9/1 gathering some interest in this contest.
