Connections of all 17 runners in this nursery handicap will hope that their horse has what it takes to work their way up through the handicap ratings and compete for some big prizes in their careers. The six and a half furlong trip is the ideal testing ground for many of these, including Jianzi who saw out six furlongs very strongly in her second race at Pontefract at the end of July.
That may well have only been a modest maiden but the nature of her performance suggested that she should improve for more experience and given a slight step up in trip. We stick with juveniles for the next race on Thursday at Doncaster but the calibre of those competing goes up several notches in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes. Yazaman sets the standard for yet another two year old race on Thursday. Dark Lion is another who has competed at a higher level than this.
A handful of three year olds have claimed this over the last 10 years and the market has a pair of them — Aplinista and Believe In Love — as the most likely winners. Roger Varian has had a wonderful run with this filly this summer. After being kept busy over the winter, she has now won four handicaps in a row, improving with each performance. She is more than worthy of taking her chance at this level and could well take another big step forward to add some black type to her CV.
Three year olds with a maximum official rating of qualify for a place in this seven furlong handicap and 13 such horses have made it past final declarations. It all went wrong for the William Haggas colt when he was tried out over a mile for the first time in a strong handicap at York last time out. The combination of track and trip meant he always looked a vulnerable favourite that day but this is much more to his liking and the price is much more appealing.
We have a nice range of action on Friday at Doncaster with everything from a 5f sprint to a 2m2f marathon, so there is more than enough to entertain racing fans. The quality of the action is also very good with a couple of Group 2s taking top billing as well as some tight looking handicaps and strong juvenile races. With so much to enjoy we have gone through the card to pull out our best betting tips from the third day of the St Leger Festival.
From this small field there are few horses who make appeal with most attention being paid to Almareekh as she heads to Doncaster on the back of a hat-trick. She will enjoy racing on significantly firmer ground than when having a crack at a Group 2 last time out and has enough to out run her handicap mark.
The trip for the bet Handicap is exactly 1m shorter than the handicap which precedes it but punters could be well served by taking a similar approach to the two. The Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned gelding came into his five-year-old season having only had three races and showed that he there is scope for improvement with a good run on his handicap debut.
The win may be slightly out of his reach but off a mark of 84 he has what it takes to earn a place at a very nice price indeed. We move from handicaps to a Group 2 contest next up, in the form of this valuable and important sprint for two-year-olds. Some of these could well be competing against one another for a few years to come and few would be surprised if The Lir Jet turned out to be the best of them. Cieren Fallon has prepared well for his first run on the Qatar Racing-owned colt with a blast on the Newmarket gallops and was reportedly impressed.
However, The Lir Jet has a high knee action which is best suited to ground much softer than that which he will encounter at Doncaster so this is a tough ask, especially with things set to continue drying out. Sacred is another in the field about whom big things are expected. Spanish Mission and Eagles By Day are the two the bookies believe have the best chance of winning this staying contest. Revolver has been raised a whopping 34lbs since entering the handicap ranks at the start of the summer.
His incredible winning run currently stretches to six as he continues to take steps up in terms of his performance levels and the trip that he is taking on. He returns to Britain on the back of a profitable couple of Group 2 races in France and his chances cannot be written off. Godolphin have some very good two-year-olds with One Ruler among the most highly regarded. This son of Dubawi has been entered in some very good races so far.
He finished second in a 7f maiden at Sandown which was won by the ultra-classy Kameko last year before winning another maiden over the same course and distance which went the way of Palace Pier in The plan continues with a step up to Listed company in the Flying Scotsman Stakes and the bookies make One Ruler the favourite. Connections have been a little less restrained with their plans for him, entering him in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes despite the fact he could only finish fourth in his opening race.
It is a 7f maiden for two-year-olds with the majority of the field making their debut. Those with previous experience should have an advantage as connections of Muy Thai are well aware. The son of Acclamation was only beaten by two horses who already had runs under their belts on his debut. Of course, it is the St Leger itself that takes top billing on the final day of the meeting at Doncaster. We have a particularly competitive renewal of the final Classic of the season ahead and it is well supported by a strong card on Saturday with a nice range of races to get our teeth into.
Punters have not had things easy so far in this meeting but there is more than enough opportunity to end things on a high. Unfortunately for everyone involved there will be no fans at the South Yorkshire venue but get your bets on, make yourselves comfy and enjoy all the action from your own home. We have a 1m4f handicap to start the final day of the St Leger Festival.
Of those in with a chance, Aweedram could be the most interesting option as he makes his debut for new trainer, Newark-based Kevin Frost. Frost will be much happier to add Aweedram to his string now than at the start of the season as the four-year-old seems to have rediscovered some of his old verve. His return to being competitive has coincided with his handicap mark dropping but it has also become clear that a strongly run 1m is ideal for him.
That is exactly what Aweedram should get on Friday with the good ground on Town Moor, so he is well placed to get off the mark for the Frost yard. Next up we have a cracking race for two-year-olds which has been won by the highly regarded Threat and Too Darn Hot in the last two years. Hopes are high among connections of Albasheer that he can win this race en route to even bigger and better things. Albasheer has made just one appearance so far when he blew away his rivals by almost seven lengths in a maiden at Doncaster.
As good as that win was, he is yet to prove himself against a higher level of opponent and heads into the race with less experience than his main rival, Chindit. Trainers and owners around the country head into the season with the hope that their horses will be able to climb the official ratings enough for them to regularly earn a place in the big Saturday handicaps.
Competition for races such as the Portland Handicap is usually keen and a full complement of 22 horses will contest the running here at Doncaster. That suggests that this is a tricky puzzle and we fancy that looking for each way value is the way to go. In that regard there are a couple of horses who stand out. The first is Mountain Peak who has been running consistently well this season and comes into the race on the back of a good win at Haydock last month.
The second horse to consider is Meraas, who has found his mark of a bit high in his last couple of outings. The edition of the Park Stakes is shaping up to be a very interesting one. The betting is headed by a couple of older horses in the shape of eight-year-old Limato and six-year-old One Master. Of the two it is the former who has the best chance of winning should things go to plan.
The one potential issue for Limato is that he likes to race off the pace and then come home strongly, utilising the turn of foot that has seen him win at the very top level over 6f in his storied career. Frankie Dettori will know exactly how Limato wants the race to pan out and will try to throw a spanner in the works by getting out in front on board Wichita and setting a sedate pace. The eponymous St Leger is the feature race of the four day Festival that bares its name.
This is the most historic Classic of the lot, having first been run way back in , and one of the highlights of the entire Flat racing season. Pyledriver and Santiago are currently locked together at the top of the St Leger betting markets. The former has earned his lofty position in the betting thanks to a taking win in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at the other end of Yorkshire at York, but as good as that win was, it is Group 2 form compared to the Goodwood Cup which Santiago contested in July.
However, he sent Ryan Moore out with instructions to try and go and win the race. A little further down the betting and there has been an almighty gamble on Galileo Chrome. After the St Leger comes a race which could include a couple of horses to keep an eye on over the middle distances next year. This nursery handicap has been won by some nice animals in recent years and Lone Eagle could be the latest to take a step forward.
He will definitely like the good ground at Doncaster and looks to have enough class to make his mark of 84 look generous. That price looks solid to us and hopefully we can end things with one more winner! Even the most causal of horse racing fans knows about the St Leger.
Some, however, may not know that there is a four day festival built up around the St Leger. There are many highlights in the St Leger Festival beyond the main event itself, as well as a host of activities for race goers to enjoy away from the track. The St Leger Stakes is the race after which the entire festival is named and the one that makes the headlines around the world. Run over a distance of one mile, six furlongs and yards, it is the longest of the five British Classics and the only one that is open to both colts and fillies.
The St Leger is also the oldest of the Classics having first been run in Winning all three Classics used to be the hallmark of the very best horses on the flat but things have changed significantly recently. The very best horses on the turf tend to do most of their racing over shorter trips and it is rare for a horse to even try to win the Triple Crown, whilst the last horse to win all three was Ninjinsky in Camelot did come close in though when he narrowly failed to follow up wins in the 2, Guineas and the Derby.
Although some horses who failed to make an impact in the Derby have gone on to win the St Leger in the last few decades the main races to consider when looking for St Leger form at the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York and the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. Whatever route a horse takes to the St Leger it is pretty much vital that they have run over at least a mile and two furlongs. The biggest winning margin was a whopping 12 lengths when Never Say Die stormed to victory in , while Masked Marvel has come closest to breaking the three minute barrier when taking the win in in a time of three minutes and 44 hundredths of a second!
Potential St Leger winners of the future are given the chance to compete in a high class contest at Doncaster courtesy of the Champagne Stakes. This Group 2 race for two year olds is run over a distance of seven furlongs and six yards and plays the role of a warm up for the St Leger as it also take place on the final day of the festival. There are any number of potential routes for the Champagne Stakes winner to take but most of the leading contenders will go on to compete in the Dewhurst Stakes which takes place the following month at Newmarket.
The Doncaster Cup was first held in so is one of the few races still going strong that is actually older than the St Leger. In those early days it was actually run over a gigantic distance of four miles but has since been cut significantly and now takes place over two miles, one and a half furlongs. This Group 2 race for two year old fillies is run over 1 mile and takes place on the second day of the festival. That gives a hint as to the prestige of this race which has been won by some quality staying fillies and mares over the years.
The St Leger Festival has a lot going for it. One of the biggest selling points that the organisers use to market the event is the incredible amount of history that horse racing has in Doncaster. There are few more historic places in horse racing than Doncaster Racecourse which has been hosting regular racing meetings since the 16th century.
From there fans are treated to all the mod-cons as they enjoy racing on the same spot as those pioneers of the sport many hundreds of years ago. The four day event gets more exciting with each day that passes and the progressive card reaches a climatic ending with the St Leger Stakes itself featuring during the grand finale. It stands proudly as the oldest Classic on the British racing scene as well as the only one held in Yorkshire.
Initially it took place over a gruelling distance of four miles but a large reduction to two miles and five furlongs followed in The race that makes this entire meeting possible, the St Leger Stakes, first appears on the scene at Cantley Common, Doncaster, on 24th September A reproduction of that might be good enough now and the No Nay Never gelding enjoyed a really smooth success on this track as a novice in his only previous visit.
He's the pick on form and will have no worries racing up with the pace in this line-up, which should boost his hopes. The five-year-old has been in consistent form this season in Ireland and, with cheekpieces back on, can be relied on to give this a solid go especially with Dettori on top for the first time. His trainer has been going great guns over the summer and some prize money should go for export. The Leger Legends race usually brings out some old faces from the weighing room but the current racing protocols ensure that's not possible this time and so it's being contested by current professionals in The four-year-old filly was twice a winner earlier this summer at Yarmouth and Kempton over a mile and has run well enough in subsequent starts at Haydock and back at Yarmouth dropped to 7f.
She's done the bulk of her racing on the all-weather circuit so far and might still have more to offer on grass back up in trip. This big-field event is wide open and In The Cove gets the nod as second choice for an interest. Richard Hannon's colt was a winner at Chepstow in July and has Rossa Ryan back in the saddle for the first time since.
He hasn't been quite as good in three runs most recently but remains on a very workable mark. A good line-up for the day one feature at Doncaster and 15 fillies are set to take their chance in the Sceptre Stakes. The Dark Angel filly was a Listed scorer at Deauville earlier this summer and has essentially continued her progress despite defeats in both runs since. She ran into the talented One Master at Glorious Goodwood and finished one-length third, clear of the remainder. Back in France afterwards she had re-opposing Cloak Of Spirits behind in third when giving best to Irska in testing conditions that may well have favoured the winner in the Group 3 Prix De Lieurey.
The experience gained from running in this grade will stand to the Godolphin filly here and she's got excellent prospects in her quest to become the 12th three-year-old winner of this contest in the last 15 years. She was fancied for that outing and if she can bounce back to the sort of form she showed last summer, she will have her claims.
So, too, will Mubtasimah if putting behind a poor run on the all-weather at Chelmsford in early July. She has been given a rest since and is worth a crack at this level based on her prior Newbury Listed success in June. For a bit of an each-way squeak, look towards Lyzbeth for the Martyn Meade yard.
The likely market leading duo of Caradoc and Derevo are definitely capable of having a major say in this contest. Both can claim things haven't fallen their way at times this season and, when that changes, success should be attainable. Sir Michael Stoute's Dansili colt is just about preferred from that pair. His latest York run saw him probably caught further back than ideal early on and he's been eased by the handicapper for that sixth-place finish.
He's unlikely to end the season without getting a blow in somewhere. On his first crack beyond that distance last month, he finished to good effect in second despite the notion the race wasn't run to suit him. On that evidence, stamina shouldn't be a problem and this is less liable to turn into a tactical affair. With Andrea Atzeni taking over, hopes are realistic of an improved showing and he's unexposed at this distance.
Kevin Ryan's filly had knocked on the door at Pontefract and York over this minimum distance prior to that Knavesmire run 18 days ago. She was caught on her heels as the race started under Megan Nicholls and, with an ease in grade in her favour now, can be given a chance to bounce back with Danny Tudhope back in the plate. She has been eased a handy 2lb in the ratings and retains scope for better things.
