2.00 Doncaster

Hugo Palmer is a rising star in the training ranks and a thoroughly likeable chap as well.  His daughter of Aussie Rules, ONLY JOKING (11/4 Coral), hacked up with plenty of give in the ground last time out at Thirsk but still looks to be reasonably handicapped in this nursery off a rating of 78.  With more improvement likely, she could go close in what looks a competitive race.  


3.00 Doncaster

The Godolphin operation are starting to bang in a lot more winners than they did earlier in the season and Charlie Appleby’s four-year-old, RECKLESS ABANDON (9/4 William Hill), ought to strip a lot fitter after his return to action at Newmarket last month.  Previously with Clive Cox, he had been off for more than ten months before finishing a respectable third behind Tropics and, assuming he hasn't had any set backs since, he ought to be too good for these with poor old Kingsgate Native my idea of the one for the forecast. 


3.35 Doncaster

Despite retiring from the saddle in 2007, Kevin Darley looks to be on the best horse in this Leger Legends race on Comanchero.  However, I will risk a bet on DANSILI DUTCH (5/1 Ladbrokes) for the ultra shrewd David O’Meara with Michael Hills in the plate.  He “only” retired in 2012 and I believe he still rides work so could be a fitter, better option.


4.45 Doncaster

Sticking with the Hills family, Charlie has been having a really good season so far and his strike rate here of over 15% (and a good profit) shows he knows what is needed to win races at Doncaster.  MARMOOM (9/2 Coral) failed to see the track as a two-year-old but has quickly made up for this absence winning a couple this season at Newmarket over this seven-furlong trip.  If in the same sort of mood, despite a rise in the weights of 4lbs, he could go close.
