Sky Sports Racing ambassador Holly Doyle is hoping Trueshan is back to his best in the Betfred Doncaster Cup on Friday, live on Sky Sports Racing.
It’s great to have one of my favorite horses Troshan Back on track in Group 2 Betfred Doncaster Cup (3.00) Friday live on Sky Sports Racing.
Trueshan returns to Town Moor with a stable record after being narrowly beaten by Coltrane in this race last year. He made his revenge in the Long Distance Cup at Ascot on Champions Day the following month, but was well behind his arch rival at Sagaro, when it was clear he was not at his best.
It will be good to see where he is, and if the ground doesn’t dry out too much, hopefully he can show enough of his old spark to get into a big race.
This isn’t just a two-horse race, of course, with John and Taddy Gosden’s improving Sweet William joining Pattern for the first time after his second race at Ebor, and Group 1 winner Broome under Aidan O’Brien tackling a new race. a trip.
Gold prospecting at Flying Childers
After winning at the highest level in The Platinum Queen last season, it would be great to score another success in the mode on her half-brother Idiots gone In the Carlsberg Danish Pilsner Flying Child’s Stakes (2.25).
I sat on Richard Spencer’s colt at the start of the season and really liked it, so it was no surprise to see him progress so quickly since his debut win at Windsor earlier this month. It’s a big jump in class, competing with runners like Royal Ascot winner Big Evs, but he has the pace to handle the drop to 5f, so I expect him to run a reasonable race at great odds.
Butti’s filly has room for progress
I ride one of Marco Botti’s runners Class 2 Coopers Marquis EBF Filly Stakes (1.15). Mary Ellen He ran well on his Leicester debut, finishing second behind Ed Dunlop’s Lunar Streets, who ran well under a penalty at Carlisle next time out.
A stride of up to 7f should suit her and she has proven at Leicester that she handles cuts into the ground. Although she is up against some potentially smart horses at this top grade, I believe Nick Bradley Racing’s daughter of Starspangledbanner has the scope to make the necessary step forward.
Hopefully time is on our side
It takes some time He has the credentials to give me a good ride in Disability in reinforcement works at Doncaster (4.45). He ran well at Town Moor last summer in a competitive 7f handicap and is adaptable enough to handle the easier conditions in this 6.5f race.
Winner of the Ripon in June, Mark Walford’s gelding reached this mark just one pound higher and looks good enough around the fine horses in stall three.
Galant Nashwa is still improving
farinaceous She proved she is still improving at four years old by recording a career best in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last weekend. She struggled to get going with the early pace, which put us behind, but she really made use of her turn of foot to get to the line and finish just half a length behind double Derby winner Auguste Rodin.
The John and Thady Gosden filly holds entries in the Group One Sun Chariot Stakes against her sex and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, but we will have to wait and see where my boss Imad Al Saqr decides to go next.
It wasn’t bradsilA day in the Group 1 Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh, but the writing was on the wall when the skies opened before the race. She turned the Earth around, which did not suit him.
He traveled well in the race but was unable to accelerate on this surface. It is also worth noting that he ran a tough race at Nunthorpe in York, so his trainer Archie Watson will revamp him now and bring him back when conditions suit.
