Doncaster St Leger Festival Day three !!!

Alanza comes with storming late run to land the group three sceptre stakes beating Dever Dream and Chachamaidee in close finish.Given great ride by Johnny Murtagh.


Nice to come back with winner on Thursday after yesterday's disappointment on Elusive Pimpernel and keeps the good run going with tidy profit on the day of £581


Moving on to day three at Doncaster we have no less than three group two races on Friday with Doncaster cup the feature race.


Going concentrate on the days  feature race the Doncaster cup which looks cracking looking race with 8 runners going to post.Hopefully there will be no non runners .


2 MILES 2F DONCASTER CUP GROUP 2 DONCASTER 2.25
MOTRICE :Won three times in 2010 before finishing third in this race last year behind Samuel with favourite Opinion Poll back in fourth .Right back to her best last time when winning the 1 mile 6 furlong listed race at Goodwood in good style.


VERDICT : Interesting race which looks to concern just the two runners Opinion Poll & Motrice


Opinion Poll has been in great form this season finishing second in Ascot gold cup and then going on to win the Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale cup at York ,though was well beaten in this race last year .Should go well though does look short in market at around 7-4 


MOTRICE ran cracker in this race last year  finishing third and finished 3.5 lenghs in front of Opinion Poll .Still only 4 year old and looks open to plenty more improvement over this type trip and at 5-1 looks good each-way value against the favourite.    


Of the other runners Saddlers Rock looks bit of dark horse for John Oxx ,though has plenty question marks to answer having only won handicap and was beaten in listed race last time and has to prove his stamina over this marathon trip.

Doncaster St Leger Festival Day two !!!

Wednesday's bet on Elusive Pimpernel was disappointing only finishing fifth in 10 furlong condition stakes, no real excuses sat in perfect position in second place though just had no response inside final two furlongs .Loss on the day of £328.


Moving quickly on to day two at Doncaster we have two group races for fillies and mares, the group two Park hill stakes over I mile 6 furlongs and the group three Sceptre stakes over 7 furlongs.Going concentrate on the Sceptre stakes at 1.55 


7F SCEPTRE STAKES GROUP 3 FILLIES & MARES DONCASTER 1.55 

ALANZA : Progressive Irish filly winning here last two starts in listed company ,showed smart turn of foot to win at Tipperary last time over 7 furlongs that looked quite strong listed contest with plenty big Irish stables represented.Looks open to plenty more improvement.


VERDICT : Not the strongest looking group three contest with just two main contenders ,Chachamaidee and Alanza    




Chachamaidee has looked different horse this season since wearing hood ,showing plenty improvement finishing second in G2 Windsor Forest stakes at Royal Ascot and then an impressive winner of G3 Oak Tree stakes at Goodwood .Has to carry 3LB penalty in this group three contest though looks sure go well for Sir Henry Cecil .


ALANZA has improved with every run this season and receiving 7LB from Chachamaidee is fancied to improve past her main rival .Trainer John Oxx's sends his first runner to Britain this season which looks very significant . 3-1 looks very fair price.

Doncaster St Leger Festival Day one !!!

Day one St Leger festival at Doncaster looks quite difficult with some very competitive races the five furlong Scarborough Stakes (Listed race) at 3.10 the days feature race.This looks very wide open contest with plenty in form sprinters with Medicean Man,Dinkum Diamond
Captain Dunne & Group Therapy all having decent chances. 


Going concentrate on what looks less competitive race the 10 furlong conditions race at 4.20 which looks quite decent class 2 conditions race.


10F CONDITIONS RACE CLASS 2 DONCASTER 4.20
ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL : High class 2/3 year old finishing second in the racing post trophy and then winning Craven Stakes at Newmarket .Had been disappointing this season ,though looked on the way back after finishing good second  behind Class is Class in group three Rose Lancaster stakes at Hadock in August with Fallen Idol well behind in fifth.Should go well taking this drop in class.


VERDICT : Decent looking condition race with the three main contenders Fallen Idol ,Elusive Pimpernel & Ceilidh House


Fallen Idol won class 2 handicap and listed race in 2010 ,had looked bit disappointing on his first two starts this season including finishing behind Elusive Pimpernel in Rose Lancaster stakes.Bounced back to form last time winning class two 10 furlong handicap at Sandown off mark 103 .Has to be respected though this looks lot tougher race and at 3-1 looks no great value.


Ceilidh House improving filly winning listed race over C&D at Doncaster last November on softish ground .Made promising reappearance in June finishing third behind the useful Timepiece in Warwickshire Oaks .Should go well though all her best form has been on softer ground .


ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL has to be forgiven for poor run last time though appeared unsuited by the soft ground and step up in trip .Looks to have ideal conditions here 10 furlongs on goodish ground and would take plenty beating if he can reproduce the form of second in group three Rose of Lancaster stakes at Haydock .9-2 looks decent value in conditions race.

Awful Awful Racing !!

Just two flat cards on Monday at Bath & Newcastle both cards can only be described as dire ,which consists of seven class 6 races and eight class 5 races.


On a Monday you don't expect much quality though surely these racecourses can put on something better than this rubbish.


Rant over moving on to later in the week on Wednesday we see the start of the four day St Leger festival at Doncaster which features some top quality action including eight group races over the four days, with the final classic of the season the St Leger run on Saturday.


Looking ahead to tomorrow there does look couple interesting races ,particularly the class four five furlong condition race( 4.00 Leicester).Hopefully we will be back in action then.

Excellent result yesterday with Caledonian Spring winning the 2 year old listed race at Haydock in great style at very generous early price of 4-1 for £730 profit on the day.Impressive performance from Caledonian Spring who hasn't stopped improving since stepping up in trip and looks certain to win more races .
