Betfred November Handicap - Doncaster

The Betfred November Handicap is an ever welcome end of season highlight, and this year it looks to be a wide open contest.

Starting off at 15:30, with the ground almost certain to be soft, it's going to be a real test of stamina for all the runners. Current front runner at the bookies Seamour should be fresh enough to give it his all, and with his previous form on soft ground very promising we think he's well worth a look even as one of the shorter priced runners.

He's looked good over longer trips, too, showing well this season, and he's been drawn on the high side, always handy at a wet Doncaster. His form may not look as strong as that of Penhill, who is joint favourite at most bookies, but to our eyes Seamour is the one to watch on this ground. Penhill suffers from another gain in the weights and will require another career best performance to win here.

Our feeling is that Seamour should be the one with the strongest claim on this race, and the best palce to back him is at PaddyPower, currently offering a market leading 7/1.

A little further down the listings, Zand has started to attract some money in recent days, and we can see why.

Although his form this season has not really matched the heights he reached last season, when he took a strong autumn Listed win in France, his running on his last few startshas not been without merit despite the relative lack of success. In particular he was hampered last time out, and his previous achievements on soft ground (including that win in France) suggest he could well feature more strongly here than the bookies would have us believe.

The best place to back Zand is at StanJames, who are offering a very decent 14/1.

Finally, out longer odds pick comes from near the bottom end of the bookies' listings.

Shrewd hasn't won a race since July 2013, which is understandably offputting to the average punter. Yet hislast three starts have been with new trainer Jardine, and he has shown improvement throughout each one. He made our radar again at York, running a trip shorter than his comfort zone but making plenty of it, following up last time out in Catterick where he came third by just under two lengths over a mile and a half.

That performance was on soft ground, another positive indicator. Running over the same distance again, but on a circuit which we feel will suit him better than Catterick, Shrewd may be a great choice for an each way pick.

The best place to back him is at Coral, at a very tempting 25/1.

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.
