Doncaster’s NAP: HOO YA MAL | 1:40pm Cazoo Flying Scotsman Stakes (Listed) | Dom’s Pick
A competitive renewal of the Listed event and Andrew Balding’s colt gets the nod after his York success last time out.
He ran a cracker on debut at Sandown in heavy conditions but proved that the quicker ground would suit him better when winning going away on this side of the Pennines last month and the in-form Oisin Murphy is back in the saddle.
Ribhi heads the dangers now up in trip but the selection’s greater experience can prove key.

Ralph Beckett’s charge was unsuited by the step up to the stiff two-miles at York last time out but ran very creditable efforts over this trip at Ascot and Goodwood prior to that, respectively.
Connections have quickly reverted back to his preferred distance and he’s been given marginal lenience by the handicapper on his track debut.
He wears headgear for the first time and that may yet work the oracle.
