Who To Follow At Doncaster On Saturday

Horse To Follow - Pyledriver

The feature race of the meeting is of course the Classic Group One contest the St Leger and this year we have sided with the William Muir trained Pyledriver.

The three year old has been a real success story for the fairly small yard having made his seasonal debut in June when finishing second at Kempton, but since then improving with every run and showing he is a real black type contender.

He headed to Royal Ascot for his second start of the season and he was a shock winner of the Group Two King Edward VII Stakes seeing off the likes of Mogul for Aidan O'Brien.

He was given a Derby entry and went to Epsom but having being bumped in the big field early on he ran no race and as a far as Muir was concerned that can go down as a blip.

He proved how special he can be last time out when taking the Group Two Great Voltigeur Stakes at York's Ebor meeting, being eased down in the final stages and with the winner of the St Leger using that race for his prep run last season, it reads very well.

Trainer To Follow - Richard Hannon

Richard Hannon has been knocking on the door all week but Saturday can be his day to shine with some nice chances including his unbeaten Chindit in the Group Two Champagne Stakes.

The trainer has a fair record at Town Moor with 48 winners and 83 places at the track during his career and he has a big chance to land 50 winners at the weekend.

Hannon has had an average season compared to others, but he normally starts to get his best runners going towards the Autumn and he will be wanting to finish this week with some decent winners.

Jockey To Follow - Andrea Atzeni

Andrea Atzeni has been known as a Doncaster specialist over the years landing winners at track frequently which sees him have a 20.05% strike rate from his 379 rides at the racecourse.

From those rides the figures read remarkably well with 76 winners and 76 places and if you had backed the jockey from his first ever ride at Town Moor you would be seeing a £38.91 profit from a £1 level stake.

On Saturday he has some really nice rides for his retained owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid and also other trainers with Legend Of Dubai and Toronto, two enterprising rides towards the back end of the card.
