ANTHONY Joshua's fourth title defence looks set to be the showpiece event of the next month for betting.

Heavyweight boxing is invariably one of our most popular markets, and such a dominant British world champion just ramps up that interest.

Joshua is an overwhelming 1/10 favourite to defeat Russian challenger Alexander Povetkin, and just 4/11 to finish the fight.

Punters looking for value backing Joshua might be best trying round betting. For those that fancy the 38-year old former WBA world title holder to cause an upset against a man 10 years into his junior, Povetkin is currently 7/1 to win the fight.

Golf's Ryder Cup is an equally popular event for many sports punters. Jim Furyk's USA team are considerable favourites at around 17/20, boasting a talented line-up that includes the top three golfers in the current world rankings in Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas.

On the turf The St Leger marks the fifth and final British Classic of the season as well as providing the showpiece event for the St Leger festival at Doncaster.

Kew Gardens is the clear favourite in the antepost betting at 7/4, although the three-year old colt could only manage a third-place finish in his last outing at York.

The field contains a great mix of talented colts and fillies, with Lah Ti Dar, Old Persian and Wells Farhh Go closest to the favourite in the betting.

More Group 1 action comes from the Rowley Mile racecourse at Newmarket, which hosts the Juddmonte Cheveley Parks Stakes as well as the final event in this year's QIPCO British Champions Series.
