It’s the final classic of the year, this one at Doncaster, the St Leger, live on ITV Racing. A typically competitive Saturday of racing looks in prospect and we have some outsiders who look worth a tickle when it comes to outrunning their current prices.
1.45 Doncaster – Portland Handicap
Always a deeply competitive contest and one where eight of the last ten winners have been 12/1 or bigger. Kind Review has enjoyed a successful season, not quite able to get involved in the Gosforth Park Cup last time out in a race for the genuine five furlongs horses. He is adaptable over five and six and that can help him over this in-between trip of five and a half.
2.00 Chester – tote+ Stand Cup Stakes
He was a little disappointing on his return in the Lonsdale but Wells Farhh Go has a far softer race to contend in here. Far from disgraced in that Group 2 behind the likes of Spanish Mission, he drops into Listed level now. That was his first race since 2019, showing enough to think that the ability remains.
2.35 Chester – Homeserve Handicap
A race that turned into a sprint was no help to Hasanabad here last time out but he did some good work late in the day. It was his best run since runner-up at Chelmsford over this trip last December, that coming from a six-pound higher mark than this. Ian Williams does well when teaming up with Richard Kingscote and few ride this track better than Kingscote does.
