Chris Baker: Two make appeal at Doncaster

There's racing at Doncaster this afternoon.
There's racing at Doncaster this afternoon.

Yesterday’s NAP Miss Celestial ran well to finish second behind a well backed William Haggas-trained filly, but unfortunately the other two selections failed to fire. 

Later this evening, you will be able to listen to a special Royal Ascot preview podcast in which I will be talking you through the big races of the week. I will be identifying some of my selections and explaining my rationale behind them. Last year, I tipped four winners over the five days (3/1, 20/1, 16/1 and 7/1) as well as Clon Coulis, who lost out in a photo finish at 20/1. For each day of the meeting, I will be posting my tips in the usual way. It looks set to be a fantastic week of racing!

I have picked out two bets for today’s racing at Doncaster. Good luck if you decide to follow.

Doncaster Tips

14:00 - 5f Betway Handicap (Class 2)

I was really impressed with the performance of JABBAROCKIE (1 point win bet at 11/2) last Sunday when he made all to win with plenty in hand at Newmarket. It is interesting that he is turned out under a 4lb penalty, and I fancy him to strike again. Eric Alston’s sprinter ran eight times last year and finished in the first three places in all but one of those races (two wins). With the advantage of race fitness over most of today’s rivals and the eye-catching jockey booking of Andrea Atzeni, this seven-year-old could be tough to beat. The main dangers could be Embour, a consistent sprinter who has Ryan Moore back on board, and TANASOQ (0.5 point win bet at 33/1), who won the Epsom Dash back in 2018. He only raced twice last season, winning under today’s jockey Graham Lee first time out and then disappointing on the All-Weather at the end of the year.
