Today's Horse Racing Tips: Two picks at Doncaster

Today's selections come from Doncaster.
Today's selections come from Doncaster.

The new flat season started with a winner as Top Rank (advised at 6/1) took the Listed Doncaster Mile Stakes in really good style. Connections will surely have Group 1 targets in mind for this lightly-raced son of Dark Angel and it will be interesting to see how he gets on in the coming months. My other selections failed to land a blow but I was happy to settle for a small profit on the day after a severe dose of ‘seconditis’ in recent weeks.

I have picked out two bets for today’s racing at Doncaster (total stake 2 points).

Doncaster Tips

15:05 – 1m2f 32Red Casino Handicap (Class 3) 

TAQAREER (NAP - 1 point win bet at 5/1) is a son of Frankel and out of an Irish 1000 Guineas winner, so it is no surprise that he was sent off as favourite for all three of his starts last season. Unraced at two, this well-bred sort finished second on debut before scoring by 4.5-lengths at Lingfield next time. He was disappointing when last seen but had several excuses that day, and he will have benefitted from another winter to develop and a gelding operation. John and Thady Gosden enjoyed a magnificent day yesterday and can record another winner here. Throne Hall and Secret Victory, also lightly-raced and from top yards, complete the shortlist.

16:50 – 6f 32Red Handicap (Class 3) 

The drying ground at Doncaster will really suit ALBEN SPIRIT (1 point win bet at 8/1), who won consecutive races at Leicester and York last summer before ending the season in Class 2 company. Given that his last two runs came in a higher grade, on softer ground and one over a longer trip, he did well to finish eighth and fifth respectively. He drops back down in grade today and is now just 2lbs above his last wining mark. Paul Hanagan gets back on board and Richard Fahey has sent out three winners in the past fortnight. Marly, visored for the first time and ridden by promising 5lb claimer Laura Pearson, is next best.
