Ben’s on the Case – Yard 2-2 in 2022 Bid to Continue Fine Doncaster Record with 3,467/1 Tuesday Treble
Ben Case bids to continue recent form with Tuesday Doncaster treble
Cheltenham Festival winning trainer Ben Case is 2-2 so far in 2022, thanks to a 23/1 double at Hereford last week. He bids to maintain his excellent form with a trio of runners at Doncaster on Tuesday, a track at which he is operating at a 27% strike rate (+50.83 to level stakes) with his runners in recent seasons. Here at Racing Tips, we assess all three horses chances below.
Dorado Dollar (12.05, Sky Bet Extra Places Every Day Handicap Hurdle)
Ben Case’s first runner on the Doncaster card comes courtesy of DORADO DOLLAR, who takes up an engagement in the first division of this extended 3m conditional/amateur rider’s handicap hurdle.
This 8yo comes into Tuesday’s race a 20-race maiden under rules, with his career-best RPR recorded when fifth in a Uttoxeter maiden hurdle back in September 2019.
Although out of sorts over fences recently, Dorado Dollar reverts to the smaller obstacles 9lb lower than last seen in this sphere, minus his rider’s claim, and the addition of a first-time visor has the potential to spark some improvement – albeit it will have to for him to belatedly break his maiden tag.
The Golden Rebel (1.40, Sky Bet Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase)
Ben Case and The Golden Rebels syndicate team up here with THE GOLDEN REBEL, who is lightly raced for an 8yo with this just his seventh start under rules.
A shock 33/1 winner of the 2m5f maiden hurdle on this very card last season, The Golden Rebel has since gone on to run over the large obstacles, getting off the mark at the third attempt in this sphere when running out an 8l winner at this track last time out.
That brought his Doncaster record to an unblemished 2-2, and a 7lb rise looks workable when considering that he should remain open to improvement over fences.
Bashers Reflection (3.50, Sky Bet Open National Hunt Flat Race)
Although not a yard renowned for first time out bumper winners, Ben Case has sent out a bumper winner at this track in recent seasons and he sends newcomer BASHERS REFLECTION up to Doncaster to contest this extended 2m contest.
The 5yo Mount Nelson gelding is from the family of three-time Gold Cup winner Best Mate and related to top chasers Cornish Rebel and Inca Trail.
He runs in the silks of owner-breeder Mrs C J C Bailey and Jack Andrews removes a handy 5lb from the saddle.
Whilst the market will be informative here on what to expect, the presence of a hood suggests that Bashers Reflection may not prove the easiest to settle and therefore a watching brief could prove advisory on debut.
