THE Betfair in-running market suggested that sponsors Juddmonte had the International in the bag at York today, with Twice Over trading at 1-5 and Byword at 1-2.

But 7-4 favourite Rip Van Winkle swooped late to deny the Abdulla pair, after trading at 64-1 in running on Betfair (£24 matched at that price).

Rewilding new favourite for St Leger after Voltigeur romp

Rewilding is the new 2/1 favourite (from 9/2) with totesport after running away with the sportingbet.com Great Voltigeur Stakes at York this afternoon.

Midas Touch remains at 4/1 after finishing second whilst third-placed Joshua Tree ran an eye-catching race on his seasonal reappearance and has been cut to 12/1 (from 25/1) for the Doncaster classic.

‘Rewilding’s effortless victory in the Great Voltigeur means he is now a warm favourite for the St Leger but perhaps the most eye-catching performance came from third-placed Joshua Tree who could still make up into Ballydoyle’s main hope for the final classic of the season,’ said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.

Elsewhere on the card, Waiter’s Dream stormed to victory in the sportingbet.com Acomb Stakes and has been introduced into the betting for the 2000 Guineas at 33/1 by totesport.

Ladbrokes St Leger – totesport bet: 2 (from 9/2) Rewilding, 4 Midas Touch, 6 Snow Fairy, 7 Arctic Cosmos, Dandino, 8 Cape Blanco, 12 (from 25) Joshua Tree, 16 Buzzword, Corsica, Simon de Montfort, 20 Theology, 25 At First Sight, Flying Cross, Hibaayeb, Meeznah, Monterosso, Total Command, 33 bar.
