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.
