All SportPesa’s Horse Racing Odds Can be Found Here
The final race of Britain’s five Classics, The St Leger Stakes, is ultimately the highlight at Doncaster over the next four days, but action commences today with an action-packed card that is definitely worth monitoring. Although eyes of the racing world will be looking ahead towards the weekend, several races today provide massive interest and SportPesa looks ahead to what promises to be an excellent day’s racing.
Standout race at Doncaster today is undoubtedly the Scarborough Stakes at 3.00 and it’s Tis Marvellous that is catching all the attention heading into the race. Trained by Clive Cox and having enjoyed a decent summer at Ascot, Tis Marvellous looks to be the pick in this race as he goes for a career best win. Equilateral and El Astronaute are expected to be the horses that push Tis Marvellous closest.
In the Leger Legends race at 3.35, three-time Derby winner, Kieren Fallon, returns to the saddle for the first time in three years as he partakes in the nostalgic event that is likely to put smiles on the faces of racegoers. Riding Kilbaha Lady, Fallon, as usual, enters the race favourite, but the value in this race could be Windsor Cross. A horse that knows the course and distance well, the Richard Fahey charge should be expected to go well in this one.
If Fallon can’t take glory in the Legends meeting the n the opportunity for a family victory can occur in the race afterwards as Cieren Fallon, Kieren’s son, rides Asoof in a wide open four horse race. Picking the victor here is a difficult task with all competitors fancying themselves heading into the race, but Asoof’s recent form combined with a well-deserved rest means he holds the edge in the 4.10.
Elsewhere at Doncaster today, Misty Grey can go well in the day’s opening race, as can Owney Madden in the 2.25 that follows. Willie John is our pick at 4.45, and in the day’s closing race, a congested field of 20, Roundhay Park looks a solid each way pick in a race that has multiple possibilities.
