The Leger Legends is a handicap over the straight mile course at Doncaster and I think the favourite, LATE ARRIVAL , will suit the conditions.
He seemed to do too much early on in his last race – his first stab at the mile trip – where he was collared on the line to be beaten by a short head.
He hasn’t finished outside of the top three in his last three starts and finds himself in a race with exposed handicappers.
At a much bigger price, ANNIEMATION needs to come back to form as he’s been disappointing in two starts this season.
He showed a good level of form in four starts last year, though, and reproducing that would surely see him involved.
The Sceptre Fillies’ Stakes is a huge opportunity for JUBILOSO to ger her career back on track.
She’s always shown huge potential but has only beaten one rival home in her last two starts. She did, however, go off a well-backed favourite on both of those starts and has always been rumoured to be an excellent work horse at home.
It would be no surprise if she managed to win this race, which looks wide open.
JOUSKA keeps on improving and the step up in trip here will surely help her.
She gets the three-year-old allowance and should run another good race to follow up with her second in a Listed race at Pontefract last time out.
The 1m 2f Handicap is really competitive contest but there are two worth taking a chance on, although both will have to return to form.
STARCAT was a very impressive winner on his debut at Kempton last December and ran better than the bare form would suggest on his second start, when he finished seventh in the 2000 Guineas behind Kameko.
A wide draw and soft ground put paid to his chance at Royal Ascot and traffic problems at Goodwood last time did him no favours, but he remains a horse of huge potential and I’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t win a group race or two in his career.
The other horse is PIVOINE for Betway ambassador Andrew Balding. I’m convinced this horse still has a big handicap in him.
Although things haven’t gone his way this season, he’s run okay and has tumbled down the weights in the process to his lowest mark for over two years.
The concluding sprint handicap features a few horses that are all starting to look fairly treated, which isn’t peculiar in sprint races, especially as horses run more often and in big field races.
Of the handful who are below their latest winning mark, EEH BAH GUM has slipped to a mark of 78, which is way below what he was being competitive off last time out.
Things haven’t gone right for him this season, but he looked much more like his old self when he was only beaten a length at Thirsk just five days ago. A repeat of that performance would see him go close.
