Saturday Racing - Doncaster

Having looked at the feature race in a previous post, the rest of Saturday's running at Doncaster also looks full of potential to us.

The opening 14:00 presents an interesting choice. On the face of it, surrent favourite Dhahmaan is the horse to be on. The form is great, the jockey is great, and nobody else looks more likely to take the win.

That said, current second favourite Dream Destination can't entirely be written off. This distance definitely suits better than the 5f run last time out, and although the ground might be a question mark there is certainly some potential there. Even more importantly, the odds are vastly more tempting than Dhahmaan.

With Dhahmaan hovering around 4/6 at most bookies, you can back Dream Destination at 6/1 over at Ladbrokes. You might even consider backing him each way - at 1/5 the odds for a top three finish, it would still pay out decently while giving you the chance for the big money should he win.

Later on in the 15:10 Handicap we're moving past the favourite to suggest you take a look at Storm Force Ten.

He may be a little further down the listings at the bookies, but with just a 6lb rise since his last and arguably greatest win so far at Chester we think he's well worth keeping an eye on. He hasn't been seen since then, which may put some off, but that combined with his previous form and potential for improvement is enough for us to consider him the pick of the bunch here.

The best place to back him is currently Coral, who are offering a much better price than we could find anywhere else at 15/2.

Finally, in the 16:20 Apprentice Jockey's Training Series Final Handicap, two horses are dueling to be top of the betting boards.

Those two are Pumaflor and Mystic Miraaj, and of the two we prefer the former. There are question marks over both regarding this one, and Pumaflor has only been raced on good ground previously. That said, he has the greater potential of the two in our eyes, and although we've found him as outright favourite in some places, if you head to PaddyPower you can back him as the third favourite at a very decent 11/2.

Saturday Racing - Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster

There's plenty of exciting racing taking place on Saturday, and our pick of the feature races is the 15:45 Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster.

It's a small field but a very open one, with pretty much every runner having the potential to win. So where to start? Well, the bookies generally know their stuff, and it's not for nothing that Foundation leads the way on their boards.

He's three for three so far in his career, having taken two impressive wins at Haydock prior to defeating second favourite Deauville in the Group 2 Royal Lodge at Newmarket. Bearing in mind that last year's winner there, Elm Park, went on to take the victory here, and Foundation looks like a decent choice.

With Frankie Dettori onboard he's always going to be a fan favourite regardless of the price, but at PaddyPower you can back him at a market leading 11/10.

Second favourite Deauville should not be written off here. Taking victory in his first two starts in Ireland, each in very different conditions, shows a horse with some real potential, and although he ended up second best to Foundation last time out he was not even a full length behind at the post. That was his first start for two months and the freshener, plus the addition of cheekpieces, may well play into his hands this time round.

Aidan O'Brien has previous form in this one, and we definitely wouldn't write Deauville off. The best place to back him is at BoyleSports, who are offering a reasonable 7/2.

Further down the runners and riders, our longer odds pick for this one is Tony Curtis.

Quite apart from having made some excellent movies, Tony Curtis looked seriously impressive last summer as a maiden winner at Epsom, following up with third in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket and a Listed win at Salisbury over 1m - the latter another race won by Elm Park prior to winning this one last year.

He's been on a two month break so his current form is hard to gauge, but the progression was strong previously and there is much potential in him. We think he's very much one to watch, and at 11/1 over at Coral he makes a tempting prospect for a punt.
