NAP OF THE DAY: Mister Snowdon, (1545 Doncaster), 1pt win, 13/2:
We’ve been on this strapping grey horse the last twice when pipped at Yarmouth and Goodwood. Really looks like the type that would want quick ground, a straight flat track, and a strong pace as he travels so well. All looks set to be in his favour here and he should run a blinder.
Tattoo, (1340 Doncaster), 11/1: some useful juvenile fillies in this but Tattoo may have been let in lightly off just 76. She had a disaster at the starting gates in her first two runs, but was much cleaner last time when running out an easy winner at Wolves. That form is working out well, and the claim here of Georgia Dobie means she gets to run off a net rating of 71. Looks over-priced.
Believe In Love, (1515 Doncaster), 6/4: is on an absolute winning roll and has rocketed to a rating of 107 making her clear best here. Her form has absolutely lifted off and she is the epitome of the rapidly improving filly. Her 10l destruction at Newmarket last time may be too good to believe, but it also may just reflect the meteoric progress she has made this summer. Worth backing to keep up the progress.
Call Me Ginger, (1615 Doncaster), 13/2: A deeply frustrating sprinter at times, but in fairness he ran really well to chase home a good 3yo at Hamilton, since which time he has toiled at less suitable tracks in Goodwood and Chester. Back here on a conventional flat straight course, he can be expected to revert to his best form on which basis he looks well handicapped. Hot favourite Fresh could be anything but still has to prove he can convert all weather form to a big field turf handicap like this.
