Hi, we kick-off another new flat turf season at Doncaster today, with the ultra-competitive Lincoln Handicap the showcase race at 3:35. Another monster field line-up for the 1 mile race and all eyes will be on Godolphin’s Auxerre, who looks set to go off a short-price favourite. Since 1999, we’ve seen six winning market-leaders land this £60k lucrative prize, while in the last 16 runnings we’ve seen all the winners aged 6 or younger, plus 15 carried 9st 4lbs or less (see all the main trends below).
The ITV cameras are at Doncaster for four races, plus they are also taking in three contests on a decent AW card at Kempton, that includes the Magnolia Stakes and Rosebery Handicap.
Next week, the focus is back on the jumps as it’s Grand National weekend, but if you can’t wait that long and want to stay ahead of the game, we’ve got all the main stats and trends for the LIVE daily races over the three days here.
As always, we’ll be hoping to find plenty more winners for you and as always, we’ve got it all covered with free tips and all key trends for the LIVE races. Enjoy!
Have a Great Weekend
This Week At Trainers-Quotes………TQ VIEW IN FLYING FORM……..
Top stuff from around the yards this week with winners for the likes of Scott Dixon, Daniel Kubler, Gary Moore, Gay Kelleway, Oliver Sherwood, Tim Vaughan and Michael Scudamore, while the TQ View selections have also been in cracking with SOME CHAOS (1st 4/1), PITON PETE (1ST 15/8) and GOSSIPING (1st 13/8, from 4/1) all rewarding members!
Here’s a snippet of what members were told this week…………………………
“Majestic Moon – Is in good form at home and returns to Southwell (CD winner here) after a good run at Lingfield last time. Plenty declared here to run but we hope he has an e/w chance again at a track he likes.”
3rd 20/1 Julia Feiden
“Gossiping – Well down in the weights and well drawn so those factors help. CD winner here too and seems well at home – Won here off a mark of 79 in 2017 (now rated 69). If back to his old form on the track too, should have every chance. Shane rides and gets on well with the horse.”
1st 13/8 Gary Moore
“Port Soif – CD winner that’s still only had 8 career runs. First run for the yard though after coming from the Dianne Sayer team. Has settled in well and a nice additon to the yard. Up to mile again here but that’s fine and we know she handles the surface. Amateur riders’ race so probably not one to get too involced in but the horse is well and Emma Sayer been booked to ride. Feel we’ve got fair place claims here.”
2nd 12/1 Scott Dixon
“Socialites Red – Certianly not disgraced last time when 4th of 11 on her first run back for 5 months. A pound lower and Theo also rides this one to claim 5lbs so we are 6lbs better off than last time. Draw 6 fine and acts well on the surface. Open race but if building on that last run then no reason why she can’t be in the shake-up at a nice price.”
1st 10/1 Scott Dixon
“Casey Banter – Has had the winter off and returned for a run at Chelmsford last time – she needed the run but dropped a pound so she is able to get into this race. She is well in at the weights and we are also taking a handy 7lbs off with good apprentice – Scott McCullagh – Daniel’s horse is feared but I would hope she will be competitive in this weak race and should not be far away.”
3rd 15/2 Julia Feiden
“Dawn Commando – Beaten only by a well-handicapped one that followed up in a higher grade last time. This race is the same grade and distance, plus Adam Kirby retains the ride – should be involved again.”
1st 13/8 Daniel Kubler
“Ubla – Been running well in defeat the last twice and gets in here a pound lower. We’ve also got a 7lb claiming jockey on today and has run well at the track before – course winner. Seems well at home so despite having Seaforth to beat feel we’ve got a fair each-way chance today.”
1st 6/1 Gay Kelleway
“Copper Gone West – Look to have the Henderson horse to beat but we come here with a decent chance too. Won well at Musselburgh two runs ago and wasn’t disgraced at Newbury in a better race last time (2nd). Had 3 weeks to get over that while even though she did well over that 3m trip the we are dropping back to 2m4f here. Stays further so we’ll make use of that but the softer ground will bring her stamina into play. Should go well.”
1st 8/11 Tim Vaughan
“Some Chaos – Been in great form this season and improved with every run. This is a big step up (and up 11lbs) but he couldn’t have been more impressive last time. Track and ground should be fine so if coping with the rise in grade can go well again.”
1st 4/1 Michael Scudamore
“Global Academy – Closely-matched with the favourite has been close-up behind that one recently. Should be another close call between us, but we are a bit better off now. He’s also been flying at home so hopeful we can turn the tables. Tom Marquand rides the horse for the first time. Looks to have a solid e/w chance, but feel he’s also got a good chance of winning if translating his home form of late to the track.”
3rd 10/1 Gay Kelleway
“Tazka – First run in a handicap over further and the extra distance I am hoping will show improvement. Won second time out over hurdles and has faced tough opposition since in several smart races so I am hoping TAZKA will go very close today at a nice price.”
3rd 25/1 Gary Moore
“Piton Pete has run well in his three chases to date but he hasn’t yet encountered his favoured soft/heavy ground and at times he has found things happening a tad too quickly for him on ground faster than ideal. It’s been a difficult winter for horses that want proper soft conditions, hence why he’s had so few runs….frustrating for his owners too. Pete jumps perfectly well but he does just need help from the saddle to get him into a good rhythm, he is a novice after all and he is still very inexperienced due to lack of opportunities. Pete is a dude at home, he’s good to ride and easy to deal with. Hopefully we’ve found a good opportunity for him here and the slight give in the ground here will help him. Look to have Charmant to beat but should be up for giving it a decent go!”
“Cracker Jak – Has run well on his first two starts in handicap company – possibly a tad unlucky last time after being caught up in trouble in-running on the last circuit. Track should suit him well as should step up in trip. Each-way chance.”
1st 6/1 Suzy Smith

Doncaster: We Kick-Off A New Flat Turf Season……
DONCASTER Horse Racing Trends

7/15 – Unplaced favourites
3/15 – Won last time out
3/15 – Winning favourites (or joint)
3/15 – Had won at Doncaster before
No winners from stalls 1 or 2 in the last 10 runnings
6 of the last 10 winners came between stalls 9-16 (inc)
The average winning SP in the last 10 years is 9/1
Note: The 2007 running was staged at Newcastle
Note: The 2006 running was staged at Redcar
Perfect Pasture (4/1 jfav) took the race in 2018
TQ VERDICT: A smaller field than normal for this Listed race so a lot of the main trends are a bit useless. It’s interesting though that we’ve not have a winner from stalls 1 or 2 in the last 10 runnings so Tis Marvellous (1) and Major Jumbo (2) will have this to overcome. Those draw higher in recent years have done well so the James Tate runner – INVINCIBLE ARMY – is the one that gets the nod. This 4 year-old drops down into Listed company for the first time in a while after running well in some top Group races over the last few season. The stable are 2 from 5 (40%) with their 4+ year-olds at the track too and he won first time out last term so the 252 day break isn’t a worry. The Charles Hills yard are also in good form at the moment so their CD winner Equilateral can’t be dismissed, while the same can be said for the Simon Crisford team – they run Mokarris. Arbalet is final one to mention as the Hugo Palmer camp boast a decent 29% record with their older horses here certainly has the past form to take this after running well in the Jersey Stakes (5th) and City Of York Stakes (3rd) last season.
2.25 – Unibet Spring Mile (Handicap) Cl2 1m ITV4
14/17 – Carried 8-13 or more
14/17 – Aged 4 years-old
13/17 – Returned a double-figure price in the betting
14/17 – Finished fourth or worse last time out
11/17 – Won over a mile before
9/17 – Won from a single-figure draw
2/17 – Winning favourites
2/17 – Won last time out
1/17 – Won a race at Doncaster before
2/17 – Winners from stalls 3-7 (inclusive)
Lord Of The Rock won the race in 2016
Richard Fahey has trained the winner in 2010 & 2014
Just 1 winner older than 6 in the last 17 years
High Acclaim (50/1) win the race in 2018
Lord Of The Rock won the race in 2016
TQ VERDICT: Horses aged 4 have done best in recent times in this warm-up race for the Lincoln – winning 14 of the last 17! Those carrying 8-13 or more have also done well, while 14 of the last 17 also came here having finished fourth or worse last time out. Of the 16 runners, the 4 year-olds in the contest are PETRUS, EXEC CHEF, AL JELLABY, RAMPANT LION, SOD’S LAW, ROBDELIGHT & FAKE NEWS. Of those seven PETRUS, EXEC CHEF, AL JELLABY, RAMPANT LION also all tick the main weight trend, while AL JELLABY (e/w) and PETRUS (e/w) are the only two that finished fourth or worse last time out. Both are worthy of a small interest in a very open race. Petrus, who is draw in 3, has been gelded since his last run back in October and is certainly dropping to a fair handicap mark (91) based on the fact he has been rated 10lbs higher in the past. He’s also run well over 1m2f at the track so we can expect connections to make full use of that proven stamina. Al Jellaby is draw in the other side (16), but comes here fit from the AW. He’s not been beaten far in his last two runs but a return to the turf looks a plus – he’s run 7 times on the grass and been in the top three five times (1 wins), while is another that’s run well at the track before (2nd here in June 18).
3.00 – Unibet Doncaster Mile Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 1m ITV4
Just 6 previous running
6/6 – Last ran 4+ months ago
6/6 – Returned 7/1 or shorter in the betting
5/6 – Rated 106+
5/6 – Aged between 5-7 years-old
5/6 – Had won over at least 1m before
5/6 – Returned 5/1 or shorter in the betting
4/6 – Winners from stalls 2 or 4 (2 each)
4/6 – Had won 6+ times before
3/6 – Winning favourites
3/6 – Ran at Ascot last time out
2/6 – Trained by Roger Varian (2 of last 3)
1/6 – Won last time out
Zabeel Prince (10/11 fav) won the race in 2018
TQ VERDICT: Just the six past runnings here – but with 5 of those going to horses aged between 5-7 years-old then this is a decent trend to note. Horses from stalls 2 or 4 also have a good record in the race, while trainer Roger Varian has also won two of the last three. With all that in mind, it’s hard to get away from the Varian runner – SHARJA BRIDGE – here. This 5 year-old is draw in stall two, plus is also the joint top-rated in the field (110). He returns from a 5 month break but went well on his reappearance run last season (close second) and overall his record is a solid one, with six top three finishes from 9 starts. Any more rain would be a plus too, but he’ll be fine in the ground – he’s the one to beat. Of the rest, Remarkable is the other joint top-rated in the field but this 6 year-old is returning from a 567 day absence so fitness has to be taken on trust. Circus Couture, Gabrial and Red Starlight are others to consider if you are looking for something at a bigger price.
3.35 – Unibet Lincoln (Heritage Handicap) Cl2 1m ITV4
16/16 – Aged 6 or younger

Addeybb (5/1) won the race in 2018
8 of the last 9 winners carried between 9-0 and 9-4 in weight
Just 1 winner has carried 9-10 in the last 33 runnings
The average winning SP in the last 16 runnings is 14/1
Note: The 2006 renewal was run at Redcar and the 2007 running was staged at Newcastle
TQ VERDICT: With ALL of the last 16 Lincoln winners aged 6 or younger this is a key trend to whittle down the 22 runners – however, a massive 19 fit the bill. 15 of the last 16 winners carried 9-4 or less in weight too, and this helps narrow the field down further as the top five on the card – Another Batt, Safe Voyage, Masham Star, Aquarium and Zwayyan seemingly have too much weight. The Godolphin runner – AUXERRE – is the one that’s been all the rage though and with 9-3 in weight, this 4 year-old ticks a lot of boxes. He’s drawn in stall 17 too and with 12 of the last 16 winners coming from 9 or higher this is another plus. There is every chance he’s a better horse than a handicapper and that seem to be the trend of late with the top stables targeting this lucrative handicapper with their up-and-coming Listed or Group performer. Last year’s winner Addeybb was another example of this. With just four career runs this Charlie Appleby runner will certainly have more to come and those against him will look to his inexperience, especially in this big field. However, with a high draw there is every chance this race will split into two contests so the big field to the horse won’t actually seem that big as from stall 17 he can get involved early on with the others drawn high. Yes, he’s not much value though, so of the slightly bigger-priced runners South Seas and Kynren can go well – both are drawn high too and have plenty of experience in these big-field handicaps. Ripp Orf is another that’s fared well in these sorts of races in the past and often comes with a string late finish, while there has been a bit of interest in the build-up for the Irish-trained Saltonstall. However, the other interesting one is the Alan King-trained BERINGER (e/w). This 4 year-old ticks a lot of the main trends and from stall 11 will have options to go either way. He’s been running over 1m2f so we can expect connections to make full use of that stamina, while jockey Andrea Atzeni is a top booking. He gets in with just 8-13 in weight – the lowest in the race – while from 11 runs on the turf has finished in the top three 7 times.

Fabricate (13/8) won the race in 2018
The average winning SP in the last 10 runnings is 3/1
TQ VERDICT: The Queen’s Fabricate took this race last year but with ALL of the last 12 winners of this race aged 6 or younger then he’s got this hefty stat to overcome. Mootasadir will be popular and is a proven course winner, but it won’t be easy having to give 5lbs away to the likes of MATTERHORN, who is actually rated 2lbs higher than him anyway. This Mark Johnston-trained 4 year-old is in the form of his life with five straight wins, including an easy 5 length success here last time. Yes, more is needed into Listed company now, but he’s a rapidly-improving middle distance performer that we know acts at the track. Robin Of Navan, Big Country, Extra Elusive and MASTER THE WORLD are others to note, especially the last-named, who hails from the David Elsworth yard that boast an impressive 32% strike-rate with their older horses here.
2.40 – Better Odds With Matchbook Handicap Cl2 6f ITV4
Just 6 previous runnings
6/6 – Returned 6/1 or shorter in the betting
6/6 – Finished in the top 4 last time out
6/6 – Aged 4 or 5 years-old
5/6 – Carried between 8-10 and 9-5
5/6 – Ran within the last 2 months
4/6 – Horses from stall 6 placed
3/6 – Winners from stall 6
3/6 – Rated between 87-91
2/6 – Winning favourites
The average winning SP in the last 6 runnings is 4/1
TQ VERDICT: Just the six previous runnings to go on, but with ALL recent winners aged 4 or 5 years-old then this is a key trend to take into account. Of the 12 runners, we’ve six that fit the bill – Alwasmiya, Gilgamesh, Desert Doctor, Haddaf, Solider’s Minute and Whitefountainfairy. Of that bunch, it might be worth taking a chance on the Simon Crisford runner – ALWASMIYA – as the yard are going well at the moment and also have a cracking 29% record with their older horses at the track. Okay, the horse has clearly had her problems has she’s not been out since Nov 17, but she was last seen winning a Listed contest well and if returning in that sort of form will be a player back into a handicap. Horses from stall 6 seem to have a good record in this race so the Balding-trained WHITEFOUNTAINFAIRY (e/w) would be interesting too and despite returning from a break has gone well fresh in the past too. CD winners, Solider’s Minute and Desert Doctor are others to consider, while last year’s neck runner-up - Udontdodou – has proven form in this race so can’t be ruled out, but it might not be easy from draw 11.

2/15 – Trained by Mark Johnston
2/15 – Winning favourites
The average SP in the last 10 runnings is 17/2
TQ VERDICT: A race with plenty of chances here, but the one I like is the Roger Charlton-trained FORBIDDEN PLANET. The yard has a decent 22% record with their 4+ year-olds at the course and have booked the promising Jason Watson to ride. He’ll also be fitter than most after a busy spell on the AW over the winter and wasn’t disgraced last time out at Chelmsford (2nd) after not getting much room in the closing stages- with just seven career runs, he should have more to come – 12 of the last 15 winners were aged 4 or 5 years-old too. The Alan King pair – Caspar The Cub and Cosmeapolitan – are both CD winners at the track so command respect and should be involved, while the consistent FIRE FIGHTING (e/w) is another to have on your radar after a fast-finishing second last time out at Lingfield – he wasn’t beaten far (2 ¼ lengths) in this race 12 months ago too when fifth.

Like this cracker from the Nicky Richards yard on Tuesday……
|26-Mar-19||Nicky Richards||Glinger Flame||We're trying the headgear on Glinger Flame. He's been a little bit wayward, looking like he's coming to win and just, I'm not saying he's dishonest, but his concentration hasn't quite been all there. I hate to call a horse dishonest, you know what I mean, and I hope the cheekpieces put his mind on the job. He's looked like taking a hand in the finish of a couple of good Northern novice races but hasn't concentrated on what he's been there for. Hopefully he will do so today.||Won the race at 7/2|
