The standout race at Doncaster today is undoubtedly the Class 1 May Hill Stakes where nine runners are set to compete. There’s a ton of excitement surrounding Cloak of Sprit within the racing industry and it enters the race in good form after going well at Ascot earlier this year. Its lopsided price doesn’t represent the best value considering the strength of the field so backing West End Girl or Boomer is the way to go in the 3.45.
In the day’s other high-grade race, the Park Hill Stakes at 2.40, Enbihaar and Dame Malliot are expected to battle it out for first place in what is a highly-anticipated showdown. The former enters the race in confident mood after only failing to win once this season. In Dame Malliot, he’s coming up against a horse that is also in good form and showing no signs of slowing down at all. The winner of this race is widely expected to come from this talented pair, but Vivid Diamond, fresh from a win at Chester recently, is also worth keeping an eye on.
Elsewhere at Doncaster, Graceful Magic and Stylistique look solid in the day’s opening race at 2.10. In the 3.15 race, it looks a very competitive field with a number of horses believing that they will be crowned winner, but Repartee and Kings Lynn is where the smart money should be. Turning the attention to the 4.20 race, Drummond Warrior is the horse that offers the most appeal in a line-up brimming with potential winners. This race looks the hardest to pick, but the horse trained by Pam Sly should edge out a lively field.
