Doncaster’s NAP: MOJO STAR | 3:35pm Cazoo St Leger Stakes (Group 1) | Dom’s Pick

Charlie Appleby’s Hurricane Lane warrants favourtism, and respect, ahead of his bid to land a second Classic but he’s a short enough price to find out and it could pay to side with the horse who finished convincingly clear of him at Epsom Downs back in June.

Richard Hannon’s colt shed his maiden tag with ease at Newbury last time out and confidence should now be brimming as he tackles the longer trip here.

Remaining on a left-handed track should suit on evidence and he presents plenty of value given the form from that Derby.

NB: REACH FOR THE MOON | 2:20pm Champagne Stakes (Group 3)

A fascinating clash between the selection and Lusail, with John & Thady Gosden’s contender getting the nod for his in-form yard.

Even the wrong side of evens, he could still be a nice price given that he has closely tied form with the well-regarded Point Lonsdale, while his Newbury win has been well franked by Harrow who has won three times since – including here on Thursday.

The son of Sea The Stars scored a facile win at Sandown Park himself since that and holds an entry in the Group 1 Dewhurst next month.
