Race 1 – Doncaster Racecourse
NOCTE VOLATUS won effortlessly with 17 in hand at over this trip Catterick toward the end of December. He ran out at the first on double bid when upped in trip at Hereford but is quite capable of making amends for that here. AVOID DE MASTER edged out a win at Newcastle after striking the crossbar in both prior efforts. A 3lb hike can see him remain a contender in this smaller field.
Top Tip – NOCTE VOLATUS (5)
One to consider – AVOID DE MASTER (4)
Race 2 – Doncaster Racecourse
SKYTASTIC has won both outings in the bumpers to date and makes hurdle bow with a hat trick firm in the crosshairs. The extra furlongs should aid his cause for Sam Thomas. GODREVY POINT went down by a short head here when last seen in November. Back from a spell, he could press for compensation with the slight drop in yardage unlikely to prove troublesome.
Top Tip – SKYTASTIC (6)
One to consider – GODREVY POINT (3)
Race 3 – Doncaster Racecourse
FUNAMBULE SIVOLA didn’t see out the extended 20f at Cheltenham latest. A return to 2m can see him get his groove back for the in-form Venetia Williams team. BEFORE MIDNIGHT has struck top form since being dropped to this trip, winning a 4 timer before not being disgraced when 4th of 4 in in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton latest.
Top Tip – FUNAMBULE SIVOLA (1)
One to consider – BEFORE MIDNIGHT (2)
Race 4 – Doncaster Racecourse
SEA SESSIONS earned her black type on just 3rd start over timber, taking out a similar event at Aintree early last month. This 5lb penalty shouldn’t anchor this Irish raider enough to stop her putting another foot forward here. WHITE PEPPER was 3rd to the selection that day at Aintree and has since won with ease when dropped in class back in Ireland. She can find another cheque here.
Top Tip – SEA SESSIONS (1)
One to consider – WHITE PEPPER (7)
Race 5 – Doncaster Racecourse
CREGGAN WHITE HARE attracted no market support when beating none home in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham in March. The experience is still useful enough and he makes plenty of appeal now making hurdle bow on first run since joining the mighty Fergal O’Brien team. FOXHOLLOW is well-worth a market check on rules debut, he wasn’t sent across the Irish Sea for nothing and is well-bred to boot.
Top Tip – CREGGAN WHITE HARE (4)
One to consider – FOXHOLLOW (5)
Race 6 – Doncaster Racecourse
ACE TIME has proven highly progressive of late, winning his last couple with absolute authority since being dropped to this trip range. A further 8lb hike will be felt but he could land a superb hat trick if he improves. SHE’S A ROCCA wasn’t disgraced in 4th at Carlisle back in October and is of interesting on return from a break. She has shown enough promise to suggest she could bring home some minor money here.
Top Tip – ACE TIME (5)
One to consider – SHE’S A ROCCA (7)
Race 7 – Doncaster Racecourse
ANGELS LANDING has shown ample potential in 4 outings over timber, landing in the frame in 3 of them. Now headed into the handicaps off a 100 mark we could see her get her head in front for Ian Williams. TARAGRACE took a leap forward when a career-best 4th at Bangor-on-Dee over this trip latest and could continue to sharpen for the Donald McCain string who are in fine order of late.
Top Tip – ANGELS LANDING (6)
One to consider – TARAGRACE (2)
Race 8 – Doncaster Racecourse
STEINKRAUS was well-held when 3rd at Hereford over slightly further but the runner up has franked the form nicely. A 1lb drop combined with a 7lb claimer sees Donald McCain’s runner have an ideal chance to get right back on the scoreboard. FLEXI FURLOUGH has found the frame in her last 7 outings and while consistent has squandered a few chances to score so might have to settle for more minor money.
Top Tip – STEINKRAUS (5)
One to consider – FLEXI FURLOUGH (9)
