Doncaster selections Friday 15th September The second day on Town Moor and the quality steps up a further notch with a couple of Group 2 contests and some more top level handicaps. It is those handicaps that are of most interest this afternoon. Headline selection Ching Shih was placed...
Doncaster selections Thursday 14th September A later start to the week this year at Doncaster with the usual Wednesday card now shuffled back to Sunday. An eight race card kicks things off today, although from my perspective the interest is held back until much later in the afternoon. Doncaster...

York selections Friday 25th August Onto Day Three at York and the feature event is a fascinating clash for the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes, arguably Britain’s premier 5f event of the year. We have colts against fillies, older horses against the 3yo’s and even a 2yo and a big...
