Best bets for the Cazoo St Leger Festival - Day Two
I am going up very early for day two at Doncaster as I think it is quite a tricky day for punters and I am only having the two bets. I am on both as of lunchtime Wednesday and the details follow.
Best bets for the horse racing at Doncaster Thursday
The Group Two-mile Cazoo May Hill Stakes at 2.40 looks at the mercy of Inspiral and she is priced accordingly.
At 3.15 we have the Group Two 1m6½f Hippo Pro3 Park Hill Fillies' Stakes and I fancy one here against the favourite. YesYes proved she stays the trip winning the Listed 1m6f Chester Stakes when last month holding off Dancing King who won the G.3 March Stakes at Goodwood afterwards to frank the form. The Juddmonte owned filly is the organisations only entry at the meeting and Ryan Moore is booked to ride for the in-form yard of Ralph Beckett. I have the 5-1. Free Wind is the jolly off the back of a progressive campaign but she has to prove she stays.
The 7f Cazoo Handicap is due off at 3.45. Modern News won on his return to action in July over at Newmarket after over a year off and a gelding operation. He is one in my tracker and I have talked of him before – didn't back him in July as I was concentrating on Goodwood at the time! He is up 6lb in the ratings for that win but you would expect there is a fair bit more to come from him and I have the 6-5 overnight.
