Mick Easterby: Trains Royal Deal

15:30 Doncaster Royal Deal 10/1 into 8/1

Good money arrived early for Royal Deal in the first of three fiercely competitive handicap hurdles at Doncaster. The multiple point winner ran his best race when second at today's track to a horse that has won twice since, and a return to this venue, combined with the change in headgear, could spark enough improvement for the six-year-old to register his maiden Rules victory.

15:20 Wolverhampton No Mean Trick 11/2 into 10/3

No Mean Trick has been supported to register his first win in over a year. The Paul Midgley-trained gelding finds himself well handicapped after several lacklustre efforts, and having run with a modicum of promise last time out, the game front runner has been backed to make the most of the slight drop in grade.

16:35 Doncaster Frans Folly 10/1 into 7/1

Frans Folly has been backed in the last race at Donny for Wiltshire handler Neil Mulholland. Lightly raced, the seven-year-old showed some abillity last term, not least when falling at the final hurdle when in contention at Wincanton, and today's better ground could see her go well once again.
