Donny Race Card....

Well Thursdays races were tough as expected and i drew a im gonna fire up a card and get some accas , place pots and dutches on the brew for friday , get them placed and come back hopefully to some Booms as im out all day in a Golf Comp at Rudding Park.

DONCASTER > Friday <

RACE 1  > Polypipe Flying Childers Stakes (Group 2)

WIN : Ahlan Emarati -
EW : BEACON - 1st @ 10.50
LONG : Mind of Madness -

Summary : Beacon is almost an EW NAP as this is simply miles better over the five than what he has shown over 6 and really ought to be unbeaten over 5f however a poor ride and a poor ( ish run ) run lto have done us a favour as we can now get on at a crazy 11/1 which i think is a tremendous bet ( dont worry that Hughes is not on as he has gone to Sandown for three Hannon rides before nipping to Salisbury for another couple of Hannons ) Forget his last run and he could be as low as 5/2 for this and that last run was a messy affair over just put a line thru it and keep the belief that the Beacon will shine brightest of all....

Result : 
RACE 2 > Ladbrokes Mallard Stakes (Handicap)

EW : Suegioo - 3rd @ 23.0
LONG : Sir Walter Scott -

Summary : This is another of those demanding 1m6f races which really needs a trip specialist and we have a bit of a mix with our selections as Pearl Castle is the Stayer , Suegioo Won the Chester Cup and Sir Walter Scott is a typical Cumani improver that will have been primed for im sure we will get a good run for our money here and with the prices at 12/1 , 12/1 and 25/1 we have some fair value in there to be nibbled at.

Result : 
RACE 3 > Socialites Electric Cigarettes Doncaster Cup (British Champions Series) (Group 2)

WIN : ESTIMATE - ( NAP  + PP Banker ) - 1st @ 2.54
EW : Times Up -
LONG : Clever Cookie -

Summary : Clever Cookie has done really well for connections this term and a big run would be no surprise but i felt all his cards were fully laid out last time and we know all we need to know and i do think it would be a bit of a surprise should he win , in all honesty i will be shocked if anything beats ESTIMATE today as this is undoubtedly the class in this and has all conditions in its favour and is back over the ideal trip and after a few near misses and a blot today should be her day and this has already been in front of Times Up and it will take a Herculean performance or a collapse to see that reversed....Has to be a MAX WIN on Estimate for me.

Result : 
RACE 4 > John Smith's Extra Smooth May Hill Stakes (Fillies' Group 2) (Str)

WIN : MURAAQABA - ( NB ) - 2nd @ 2.68
EW : N/A

Summary : I have this Johnston filly well clear on my ratings , Timeform have her between 4 & 20lb clear of these and this ought to be a formality as she justifies her entries into the Rockfel , Fillies Mile and the Cheverley ( doubling up on this if Estimate blows up ) .

Result : 
RACE 5 > Coopers Marquees Handicap

WIN : DANZENO - 2nd @ 3.60
EW : Alejandro -
LONG : Shropshire -

Summary : Typical trappy sprint with a lot meeting again for the umpteenth time but the fav Danzeno can confirm his Newcastle win against his elders once again but my old fav Shropshire will be getting my EW coin a lemming with this one im afraid...

Result : 
RACE 6 > Weatherbys Stallion Book Flying Scotsman Stakes (Listed)

WIN : White Lake - 4th ( Let me down for the PP which paid £156 )
EW : RISEN SUN - 5th
LONG : Sea Wolf -

Summary : This is a wide open race with little to split them and all arrive with some pieces of notable form and this will be a good learning curve for all concerned, from a punting perspective its really a watcher but if pushed i would probably risk a few EW sheckles on the MJ runner as it won nicely fto and will make another bold bid from the front and if allowed enough rope will hang them...and at around 10/1 is worth a go EW.

Result : 
RACE 7 > Frank Whittle Partnership Classified Stakes

WIN : Enobled - 2nd @ 3.20
EW : Raise Your Gaze - NR
LONG : Zee Zeeley - NR

Summary : Not a lot to go with here as its wide open so im gonna chuck a few pennies EW on the Champs Elysees runner Zee Zeeley and hope shes good enough but im expecting decent double figure odds so it makes the punt worthwhile and as with most i will be setting up some in running trades.
