Wednesday 11th September Listed Stakes Bet

Day one of St Leger festival at Doncaster,with the feature race the Crown Hotel Scarbrough Stakes over five furlongs .

11 runners declared for five furlong listed race on ground described as good.On official handicap figures this looks competitive listed race .The three main contenders look to be Justineo & Masamah & Medicean Man 

JUSTINEO : Fair sprinter on his day,returned to form winning  five furlong conditions race at Newmarket in July .Followed that with career best effort finishing excellent 3rd in group 2 King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last time.Should go well returning to listed company .

MASAMAH : Useful sprinter for Kevin Ryan back in 2010/11 winning group two at Goodwood ,though not as good last season for Marco Botti .Bounced back to form winning competitive handicap at Ascot in July off mark 100 .Also finished fair 4th last time in listed race at Beverley from poor draw .Has to be respected with Ryan Moore looking interesting Jockey booking .

MEDICEAN MAN :Inconsistent sprinter ,though useful type on his day .Has won twice this season including in listed company at Haydock in June ,not shown much recently though the drop back to listed company will suit.

VERDICT : JUSTINEO looks solid here after putting in career best effort at Goodwood last time in group two and had three of today's rivals behind (Masamah 8th) , Medicean Man 9th) Borderlescott 11th) .

Will be suited returning to listed company and is reunited with William Buick who won on the horse at Newmarket .Also the Roger Varian stable are in red hot form 6 out 8 so far in September .

Masamah finished  fourth in listed race at Beverley last time and has each-way claims ,though has plenty to find with Justineo on Glorious Goodwood running .

Medicean Man should get the race run to suit with plenty front runners in the race ,though is never easy to predict and faces no easy task under 3lb penalty .

Of the others C&D winner Magical Macey looks to be improving and could go well especially if there's any more rain.Having won on good/soft or softer five times .
