Racing League Round Two Tips: Saaheq one of three tips at Doncaster on Thursday

Check out our tips for night two of the Racing League

We swiftly move on to round two of the Racing League this Thursday after the new event kicked off at Newcastle last week. It's the turn of Doncaster to take over the reins this Thursday with a six-race card that kicks off at 17:42, and we have three tips for the racing on Town Moor here...

17:42 Doncaster - William Hill Build Your Odds Racing League Race Seven

We kick off with the sprinters taking to the track for the 5f 3y opener and the top-weighted Copper Knight will look to produce a much better effort than he did in last week's Racing League action, where he finished 10th. However, he could prove vulnerable to some speedier rivals and one of those worthy of a mention is the Paul Midgley-trained Ballintoy Harbour, who was last seen winning at Newmarket off a mark of 79, and he could well defy a 6lb rise this afternoon, and looks the one to beat.

Tom Clover's Celsius is a course and distance winner, but has struggled of late to get his head in front and has been in the handicapper's grip. A slight ease in his mark now sees him line up off a 1lb higher mark than his last victory, so he has to be considered here, while Ed Walker's Tenaya Canyon was a decent second last time out at Doncaster, and upped 1lb here has to run a solid race once again.

There is an eye-catching contender further down the betting in the shape of Saaheq, who has been a regular on the track this year and has already notched up three wins in the last six months. Amanda Perrett's charge was last seen running well at Sandown Park and if the seven-year-old can build on that effort off a 1lb lower mark then he could be a lively challenger at double-figured odds. His last win came at Sandown back in June off a mark of 80, and it's that figure he runs off on Thursday night, so he's handicapped to run a mighty race and he could prove to be the value play.

18:13 Doncaster - William Hill Extra Place Races Racing League Race Eight

Paul & Oliver Cole's Ivatheengine finished second on the opening evening of the Racing League at Newcastle last Thursday, and the four-year-old will look to go one better at Doncaster on night two. Lining up off the same mark in this event, Ivatheengine is entitled to be challenging for favouritism and looks to be one of the major players in the field.

Ed Walker's Jonah Jones and Tim Easterby's Golden Apollo top the weights for this 6f contest and both have the potential to score here, but have been struggling to gain any consistency of late. The former was last seen down the field in a competitive Ascot handicap and needs everything to fall right, while Golden Apollo is 1lb lower than his Ayr Silver Cup winning mark, but has failed to relive those good days recently.

Towards the bottom of the handicap is an eye-catching contender in Brian Meehan's Tanfantic, as the twice winning juvenile has failed to notch a success during his three-year-old campaign, but has slipped down the ratings recently, and off 77 could spring a surprise. Fifth over 7f at York last time out, the Gutaifan gelding will relish a drop back to six furlongs (both wins came over that distance), and with the blinkers appearing to aid his chances at York, the headgear will return on Thursday and could work its magic again.

19:53 Doncaster - William Hill Pick Your Places Racing League Race Eleven

We turn to the penultimate race of the evening for our third and final tip, and while the 19:53 contest looks a competitive race on paper it could be the George Scott-trained Sarvan that can record a second career victory. Winless in nine, the four-year-old son of Lope De Vega has been running extremely well of late, but has just failed to get his head in front. 

Second at Windsor off a mark of 84 in late June, Sarvan then followed that up with another second placed finish at Lingfield in the middle of July off a mark of 86, and it's that figure that Scott's charge lines up off in Thursday's contest, and if he can just improve slightly then he can duly record a second win of his career. Scott has opted to put the tongue tie on for this event, so that could bring out some improvement, and if he can just produce his best form in this competitive event then he can score.

The main dangers appear to be the David Menuisier-trained Russian Virtue, who has been running well of late, but like Sarvan has failed to get his head and Hms President ran well at Windsor last time out and is entitled to be considered for this event, but Sarvan is the selection in a trappy betting heat.
