Nice winner on Monday at Galway with Zhekova winning Oyster Listed Stakes at recommended 15-2 for £360.00 profit.Hopefully we can continue the good run at Doncaster this week .
Moving on to Thursday we have decent card at Doncaster ,with blogs main bet in the feature race the Park Hill stakes at 3.05 .
3.05 DONCASTER 1M 6F 132YDS PARK HILL STAKES G3:
11 runners go to post for the group 2 Park Hill Stakes over the extended 14 furlongs for fillies & mares on ground described as good .Not the strongest looking group 2 race ,with no horse having won any group race .The three main contenders look to be Hidden Gold,Gretchen & Koora
HIDDEN GOLD : Useful filly,winning 6 from 9 starts last season ,including winning 13F listed race on polytrack at Lingfield last October .No wins on the turf this season,though finished good second in G3 Lillie Langtry stakes at Goodwood in July & third in Longsdale Cup at York.Should go well with conditions to suit
GRETCHEN :Well bred filly ,won 2 from 4 starts,including winning 12 furlong listed race at Newmarket last time beating Sahrawi by head .Will need to show more improvement ,though being half sister to proven stayers Duncan & Samuel,this longer trip should suit .
KOORA : Only had 3 starts,winning 10.5 furlong maiden at Doncaster in August .Showed improved form last time when finishing second in 12 furlong listed race at York last time .Looks open to plenty improvement over this longer trip .
VERDICT : HIDDEN GOLD is 5LB clear on official BHA ratings,and sets clear standard on her place form in group races at Goodwood & York .She lost nothing in defeat when finishing third in much stronger G2 contest last time, against Male opposition.Odds 9-2 look decent value .
