Doncaster Place 6 preview | October 21st

13.10 – vertem.co.uk Nursery – 1m

 

GULMARG is more exposed than his two rivals but he’s consistent and wasn’t beaten far when fifth in a hot race last time. Back down in grade, over a mile, he could gain a third win of the year. SWIFT LIONESS went down with a fight at Pontefract last time and he holds a solid chance here with William Buick booked to ride.

 

Selections: GULMARG, SWIFT LIONESS 

 

13.45 – European Breeders Fund EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes – 1m

 

This is wide-open but SEA OF ROSES wasn’t disgraced when chasing home an odds-on favourite on debut and that experience will stand her in good stead here. I like the booking of Hayley Turner too and although this race is littered with promising newcomers, her mount could get herself into the frame.

 

Selections: SEA OF ROSES

 

14.20 – European Breeders Fund EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes – 1m

 

TAMALUK has offered plenty of promise in both her starts to date and improved from her debut fifth at Newbury to finish fourth at Newmarket last time. She should improve for the step up to a mile and could be about to make her presence felt with lots more to come under Jim Crowley.

 

Selections: TAMALUK

 

14.55 – British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes – 7f

 

FLORIDA is related to a lot of useful winners and given her trainer’s excellent season, she could go well if the market speaks in her favour. I wouldn’t rule out HAVANA BLUE though, who gets the services of William Buick and came close to winning at Salisbury last time. She has sound claims.

Selections: FLORIDA, HAVANA BLUE 

 

15.30 – Vertem Leading The Field Handicap – 6f

 

ASJAD won a valuable pot at this course last month and backed that up with a good third at Ascot last time. He should be competitive again back down in distance. DAKOTA GOLD ran a big race when fourth at York last time and gets into this race off the same mark, so given his past exploits, he’s a big player in this grade.

 

Selections: ASJAD, DAKOTA GOLD

 

16.05 – vertem.co.uk Handicap – 1m1f

 

Selections: TRAILA, ALMUHIT

 

TRAILA was narrowly edged out at Yarmouth five weeks ago and despite going up another three pounds, he’s going the right way and has William Buick in the saddle. ALMUHIT shaped with real purpose when runner-up on return/handicap debut at Kempton last month and, with effort likely to have been needed after a four month break, he surely has more to come.
