Nine runners are declared in the 1m6½f contest at Doncaster on Thursday afternoon

There is a handful of group contests scheduled on the second day of the St Leger Festival at Doncaster, with the Park Hill Fillies’ Stakes featuring on the seven-race card.

FREE WIND (9/4) has made rapid progress under John & Thady Gosden, with the three-year-old hoping to land her fourth success in six races.

The Galileo filly landed some black type on her last start, making light work of her rivals to win the Prix Minerve at Deaville last month.

She has been bumped up in trip here, but she is in flying form and looks the one to beat on paper.

YESYES (11/2) is given her first crack in Group company, after four promising starts for Ralph Beckett.

The three-year-old just did enough to land the Listed Chester Stakes last month, holding on to win by a short head.

She will need to improve here, but she has some ability and shouldn’t be underestimated.

SAVE A FOREST (6/1) bounced back to form on her last outing for Roger Varian, after landing the Listed Chalice Stakes at Newmarket.

The Kingman filly has been fairly consistent since her return to action in March, winning three of her five starts and placing fourth in the Oaks.

She carries some interesting form and her price holds some value against some of her rivals.

SILENCE PLEASE (13/2) is stepped in trip in hope of reviving his form for Jessica Harrington while Andrew Balding’s TRIBAL CROFT (8/1) will be hoping for the heavens to open overnight.

GOLDEN PASS (11/1) was disappointing on her first start in Graded company at Newbury last month for Hugo Palmer and Hughie Morrison’s URBAN ARTIST (12/1) has been fairly consistent over the longer distances this season.

National Hunt Flat star EILEENDOVER (16/1) landed her first win since switching codes at Newmarket last month for Pam Sly, while Ed Walker’s GLENARTNEY (25/1) is unexposed and may have something to offer over this distance.


  • Save A Forest @ 6/1
  • Eileendover E/W @ 16/1
