Here are Alan Alger's best horse racing tips from Doncaster and Kempton to get you started.



Top pick: Petrus | Second choice: Exec Chef

The consolation race for the main event for those that have failed to make the required rating to land a spot in the Lincoln, though this is still a valuable prize.

Horses aged four have dominated this race over the last decade with eight wins, including the last four runnings.

Last year's winner was priced at 50/1, as was the victor in 2012. With just one winning favourite in the last decade, it looks like it will pay to focus on young, improving horses that haven't quite caught the eye of the market.

PETRUS has a nice low draw for the Brian Meehan stable. He's dropping back down to a mile here and looks well-handicapped.


Top pick: Desert Doctor | Second choice: Raucous

A competitive sprint handicap on the all-weather surface at Kempton.

Likely favourite Soldier’s Minute was a facile winner over course and distance a week ago, but this is no doubt tougher.

In the short history of this race (seven seasons), no winner has returned at bigger than 6/1, so focus on the head of the market.

DESERT DOCTOR is a six-time winner on this surface, including once over course and distance. He looks ideally placed to run a big race here.


Top pick: Forbidden Planet | Second choice: Count Calabash

A valuable middle-distance handicap which has had two winning favourites in the last three years.

Only one horse aged older than five has won this in the last decade, while low draws look to be favoured with a single-figure stall accounting for the last seven winners.

Horses carrying over 9st 3lb have also struggled.

FORBIDDEN PLANET ticks every single box and looks as though he will be very hard to beat. Drawn in stall one, aged four but well-handicapped carrying just 8st 8lb. Expect this Roger Charlton colt to justify his place towards the head of the market.


Top pick: Kynren | Second choice: Wahash

The big race of the day and a handicap with a long and varied history.

The Lincoln hasn’t been too kind to favourites since residing at Town Moor in Doncaster. Since that switch from the now defunct Lincoln racecourse in 1965, just eight favourites have prevailed.

The Godolphin-owned Auxerre looks to be poor value based on a number of historical trends. The connections were successful with Secret Brief in 2016, but keep in mind that he was 12/1 and this race looks as open as ever.

The Irish-trained Saltonstall has been the subject of an ante-post gamble, but the last time the prize went back over the Irish sea was in 1984.

I’ll take a chance on KYNREN for the David Barron stable who won this with Amenable all the way back in 1991.
