Good result on Wednesday with Justineo winning the feature race at Doncaster in good style .Hard to understand why he drifted so much going off 11-2 on betfair. I thought 3-1 was more than fair price, so can't really complain about 4-1 SP with best price guarantee for £240 profit on the race.
Moving onto the Day 2 at Doncaster the two feature races are group three Sceptre stakes over 7 furlongs & group two May Hill stakes over 1 mile 6 furlongs .Going concentrate on group three Sceptre stakes on ground described as good/soft .
2.10 DONCASTER 7F SCEPTRE STAKES FILLIES & MARES GROUP 3 :
10 runners declared for the 7 furlong sceptre stakes at Doncaster for fillies & mares .This looks decent contest with the three main contenders being Annecdote ,Maureen & Winning Express .
ANNECDOTE :Progressive filly, winning three of last four starts ,won 1 mile Sandringham Listed race at Royal Ascot in June .Followed that with career best effort winning the 7 furlong group 3 Oak Tree stakes at Glorious Goodwood .
MAUREEN :Won 7 furlong group three Fred Darling at Newbury in April .Far from disgraced in group one company on her last four starts ,including finishing 6TH in 1000 guineas .Also finished fair 4TH in Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot .Will be suited by this drop in class and soft ground conditions .
WINNING EXPRESS : Consistent filly ,won three times from 7 starts .Finished excellent fourth in 1000 guineas at Newmarket in May finishing just ahead of Maureen .Closely matched with Annecdote on Oaktree Stakes running . Should go well if handling softer ground conditions.
VERDICT : Not much to choose between the three main contenders on official ratings .However with ground conditions in her favour MAUREEN looks the one to beat here .Having been contesting all top group one fillies races this season .Will be suited by the drop in class and is unbeaten in group three company .Odds around 3-1 look decent value .
Winning Express & Annecdote have to be respected , though both have prove they are as effective on this softer ground .
