Just 24 hours to go until the final British Classic of the season so no better time to try and take a few quid off Paddy than today. You hear me Paddy?
Friday’s Doncaster card kicks off with the Group 2 Flying Childers over 5f and there’s no doubt the one to beat is GUTAIFAN, who has been looking better and better with each run and chased home Shalaa in France last time at Group 1 level. The one to beat for Richard Hannon and Frankie Dettori.
Next up is the Mallard handicap at 2.30pm which is over an extended 1m 6f. The lightly-raced NOT NEVER is much better off at the weights with Polarisation than when beaten by that busy runner last time.
Hugo Palmer’s hope has a great chance off 8st 5lb.
It’s the Group 2 Doncaster Cup over 2m 2f at 3.05pm. Many of the top stayers are swerving this contest so take a chance each-way with SUEGIOO who is bang there on ratings and has been in cracking form in handicaps for Marco Botti.
Finally, check out the Group 2 May Hill at 3.40pm where LIGHT UP OUR WORLD get a chance to run a big one at a fair price. Richard Hannon’s challenger was beaten by rival Hawksmoor last time, but I have a feeling the selection will love a step up in trip. Jim Crowley is an interesting booking.
So best of luck. Not the easiest of days, but a chance for a Yeeehaaa or two!
