This week we hand over the baton to THE JUMPS PUNTER as he provides you with a free tip.
He has also written our BIG RACE PREVIEW which includes another free tip so that’s two for the day!!
PLUS he also features on our weekly podcast as we talk all things Caspian Caviar so it’s fair to say he’s been a busy man. Let’s hope he rattles off some nice profit for us here with a typically in depth write-up
11.50 Doncaster Handicap Chase
There looks to be plenty of early pace on here.
Always On The Run has front run in the past but over this longer trip with the hood on I feel they will ride him differently and hold him up. He didn’t run to bad last time but he looks a little high in the handicap at the minute and I think he is best over two miles making all the running.
Wells De Lune likes to make the running he won over a similar trip as today last time but I do feel he is better over shorter the second the last day idled in front and threw the race away the horse back in third as since come out and ran well but I feel he is a better horse at 2m. We have some strong stayers in this race and for me, I think the trip will catch him out this time given the opposition.
Kalane has ran in some good races the last few times but I have been left with the impression that this trip will be plenty short enough for her. On her runs at Cheltenham and Haydock last season over slightly longer trips than today, she lost her position before plugging on. They could try and race her up with the pace but given the likely early pace I’m not overly sure this would help her cause while I like the Haydock form the trip puts me off her.
Shadows Lengthen was a horse we backed last time at Wetherby in the race Wells De Lune won but he made a mistake at the first and unseated his rider. I liked the way he ran the time before at Wetherby in a listed race he kept on well that day over the same trip as today. He races off the same handicap mark today and in the past, he has won off a 1lb higher mark. He is a previous course and distance winner and is seen to best effect on courses like Doncaster the long home straight plays to his strengths.
Shadows Lengthen 2pt Win 11/2 @ most bookmakers
