Greg’s Selections: Looking for Double Delight at Donny

Greg’s Selections: Looking for Double Delight at Donny

The flat turf season finally begins to get underway, with a top card on at Doncaster and Kempton today, including the Doncaster Mile and Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes.


I’ve got a couple of fancies at Doncaster today, including one in the aforementioned Listed race over a mile. The Doncaster Mile at 2:20 only features the 6 runners, meaning little in the way of e/w value.

However Chandlery looks a massive price at 11/2 with race sponsor Bet365. The Richard Hannon horse is lightly-raced, has been off the track since 2011, but holds an entry into the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes later this year, so the yard are obviously confident he remains the ability shown when last seen, winning a Group 2 at Goodwood. Admittedly this will be a massive test for him today, but with Ryan Moore on board I have confidence.


In the next race, a Class 3 handicap, an old favourite of mine features. Mark Johnston’s 4 year old Fennell Bay has had a comeback run last month at Lingfield, but has previously shown much more on turf, including winning a couple of high quality handicaps last summer culminating in the King George at Royal Ascot. He’s struggled since then, being pushed up the weights, but has returned to a winnable mark now, only 1lb higher than that King George success.

He was also gelded in the winter, which should help his consistency this term. The horse is best price 8/1 generally, including at Bet365 who again sponsor this.


Greg’s Selections:

2:20 Doncaster – Chandlery 11/2

2:55 Doncaster – Fennell Bay 8/1

Double – 57.5/1 Bet365


Good luck if you’re having a flutter.

I've been going to the races since I was a kid, so always liked a flutter, but it's only in the last couple of years I've really put some time into studying form and stats etc. From there I started my blog, which helped me concentrate on specific races (maidens), and found my selections being pretty successful. I also like a bet on the football, NBA and occasionally boxing.
