It's been a good afternoon for our star columnist Richard Fahey - check out his thoughts on this evening's runners at Doncaster.
Leading Saturday chances
Good Tyne Girl is our first runner on Saturday in the ripon-races.co.uk Novice Auction Stakes. She’s fit and well having been due to run a couple of weeks ago. She’s a typical early-season two-year-old who could run well on debut here.
Gin In The Inn reappears in the At The Races Sky 415 Handicap. He had some good early season form last season and has come down a few pounds again. We’re happy with him at home and he won’t mind any juice in the ground.
We also run Scofflaw who isn’t always the easy to predict. He’s very fit and well going into this and he’s gone well at Ripon before.
Kimberella surprised me when winning so well at Thirsk last week but faces a different test in the totepool EBF Stallions King Richard III Stakes at Leicester. It’s a stiff seven there but if he turns up in the same form as last week he’d have a chance. He’s one tough cookie.
Andok is another who has been a little frustrating. We thought he was really nice as a two-year-old but he did run himself back into some form at the backend of last season. He looks fantastic right now, better than he has for a while, and I hope we might see a bit of improvement in the Wateraid Handicap at Doncaster.
So does Danehill Desert in the closing Yorkshire Water Handicap. He’s been working really nicely this spring and looks fantastic. It’s a big day for him. His form is solid and he’s going really well at home.
