Doncaster – 6th November: DOM’S NAP + NB | Saturday’s 2 Best Bets

Read our team’s two best bets for the action at Doncaster on Saturday afternoon



St Leger Doncaster
Doncaster’s NAP: TARHIB | 2:05pm Virgin Bet Wentworth Stakes (Listed) | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

The unexposed William Haggas filly is an intriguing contender now upped to this sort of level having justified very short odds of 1/40 in a novice at Great Yarmouth when seen back in October.

Dropping back to six furlongs prior to that compared to debut appeared to work the oracle, however, so this is clearly her preferred trip and she could have plenty of potential for a yard who have enjoyed a terrific campaign.

Michael Dods’s consistent Dakota Gold is likely to be a player, with former course second King’s Lynn another to keep onside.

NB: VIA SISTINA | 12:55pm British EBF Gillies Fillies’ Stakes (Fillies’ & Mares’ Listed)

The daughter of Fastnet Rock won at the second attempt in easy style at Goodwood back in May before a disappointing showing over the English Channel at Paris Longchamp two months later.

However, she bounced back to form at Newmarket recently when dropped back in trip and perhaps that switch will see her now improve over this distance.

Jamie Spencer does the steering once again and she looks a huge player here, with Irish raider Zawara one to note.
