1:10 Doncaster – Coopers Marquees Maiden Stakes (GBB Race) Cl3 (2yo) 7f

2 BAY OF HONOUR – Represents a yard with an excellent record from their 2yo debutantes and the Shamardal colt can make his presence felt. Related to a decent family of winners and no surprise to see him firmly in the mix where he could prove a decent sort for the Godolphin team.

8 KINGDOM COME – Expensive Kingman colt who showed plenty amidst inexperience on debut at Newbury last month. That is proving to be excellent form with the runner-up, fifth and sixth all winning since and he’s sure to come on for the run. Holds a Dewhurst entry so clearly well-regarded and no surprise to see him run well.

9 LEUVEN POWER – Improved for his debut to finish third at Newcastle seven days ago but still looked inexperienced on that occasion and remains capable of better still. The Cotai Glory colt was beaten around four lengths there, outpaced early before running on and this longer trip can bring out further improvement.

1:40 Doncaster – Cazoo Flying Scotsman Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 (2yo) 7f

5 HOO YA MAL – Posted a good time when running out a ready winner of a valuable York maiden last month and the Territories gelding looks sure to improve further. He had shown ability on debut at Sandown in heavy ground but stepped up markedly on that latest and taking another rise in class he can make his presence felt again here.

10 RIBHI – Made an excellent first impression despite big odds when scoring at Salisbury on debut by three lengths, beating a subsequent winner in the process and looking a potentially smart prospect. This extra furlong is sure to suit and with further improvment anticipated from Marcus Tregoning’s charge he can go well upped immediately in class.

2:10 Doncaster – Wainwright Flying Childers Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 (2yo) 5f

3 CATURRA – Enjoying a good campaign with two wins under his belt and arguably unlucky not to add a third last time out at York where he finished off well having perhaps been given just too much ground to make up behind reopposing Attagirl. Penalised on that occasion there may be more to come and the Mehmas colt ought to be involved at the business end.

9 ATTAGIRL – Scored on just her second career start when taking a Haydock maiden and bounced back from a lesser effort at Ascot to go close at Newbury dropped to this trip before getting back to winning ways at York latest. Travelled well there and met with trouble in running but appeared to win a shade comfortably and she can improve again and should be in the mix.

2:40 Doncaster – Doncaster Cup Stakes (Group 2) (British Champions Series) Cl1 (3yo+) 2m2f

2 STRADIVARIUS – With Trueshan taken out the way looks clear for the Gosden runner who despite having had a hard race at York three weeks ago should prove too good for a moderate field.

The top-class stayer is perhaps just beginning to see his powers on the decline now and he was made to battle hard for victory in the Londsale Cup last time and that might have left a mark on the seven-year old.

However he remains the class act in this field and has beaten most of these already so hard to oppose or leave out as a banker leg.

3:15 Doncaster – Mallard Handicap Cl2 (3yo+ 0-105) 1m6½f

4 RHYTHMIC INTENT – Not at his best this term in five starts but ran better than the bare result last time at York behind Sam Cooke and the return to a longer trip can see Stuart Williams’ charge return to form. Won twice last term and finished runner-up here in the November Handicap and while he likely would have preferred softer ground can handle these conditions. Not out of this on his best form and can run well.

8 SPEEDO BOY – Back in good fettle this term on the flat, twice finishing runner-up in June before getting back to winning ways at Ascot in July with a defeat of Star Caliber. Has run well in defeat on both starts since and finished a close third to Indigo Times at Newmarket last time. Mark is unchanged and has in-form William Buick in the saddle so a big run wouldn’t be a surprise.

3:45 Doncaster – Cazoo Handicap Cl2 (3yo+ 0-105) 6½f

12 MITROSONFIRE – Developing into a very useful sprinter, only thwarted in his hat-trick bid by a better handicapped rival at Haydock latest having won previously at Ascot and Newmarket in good style.

He beat Wentworth Falls on the latter occasion who franked the form on Wednesday and racing off the same mark here he should continue to make his presence felt reunited with PJ McDonald who is unbeaten on him.

While it is likely he’ll need to find a shade more improvement that isn’t out of the question and in his current mood looks hard to overlook.
