Savoire Vivre is St Leger favourite

Savoire Vivre was made favourite for the St Leger yesterday, 48 hours after finishing second to Murghem in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury and 24 hours ahead of today's Great Voltigeur Stakes, which should be a leading trial for the Doncaster Classic. The John Gosden-trained colt, a twice-raced son of 1985 St Leger winner Oh So Sharp, is quoted at 7-2 in Coral's opening show on the 9 September race.
