I’m off on a nice weekend break this weekend so thought I’d put up my tips for Saturday now. The first big handicap of the year is a great one and always seems to produce a class winner.
Here’s my three!
SMARTY SOCKS 1515 DONCASTER – (nap) (unplaced)was a very smart horse last year winning at Doncaster and Ascot. On a high mark but I hope will go further this year. (5 points each way)
SHAMDARLEY 1405 DONCASTER – (nb) (unplaced)won a competitive handicap at York on his final start and his race normally produces a fast finishing winner – hopefully he’ll be the one. (3 points each way)
QARAABA 1655 DONCASTER – (treble) (won – 4-1 = 14 points) a good win at Sandown last year was followed up last time at Kempton and he just got up on the line, he must be open to further progress and must run into a place (2 points each way)
Enjoy the first day on the flat, thanks to Emma-Louise for the permission to use her photos.
