Mutafaweq is the 5 to 2 favourite with Paddy Power to become the first horse in 18 years to add the Jefferson Smurfit Irish St Leger to a victory in the English St Leger.

Touching Wood completed the double as a three-year-old for Tom Jones in 1982, but the Irish Leger is now a multi-generational classic and Mutafaweq will be searching for a first career win since beating Ramruma at Doncaster over a year ago.

A total of eight horses were declared yesterday, including three other English-based raiders, Arctic Owl, Little Rock and last year`s runner-up Yavanna`s Pace.

Arctic Owl is a 3 to 1 second favourite with Powers behind the Godolphin favourite, while John Oxx`s Katiykha is the shortest priced of the Irish runners at 9 to 2.

Betting: 5/2 Mutafaweq, 3 Arctic Owl, 9/2 Katiykha, 6 Chimes At Midnight, 7 Little Rock, 8 Yavana`s Pace, 16 Lermontov and Rostropovich
