Doncaster St Leger Festival Day three !!!
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.
