Who To Follow On Day Three Of Doncaster's St Leger Festival 2023

James Mackie | @JMackieRacing

Trainer To Follow - Richard Hannon

Richard Hannon is a trainer in exceptional form of late running at a 25% strike rate for the last two weeks managing to land 14 winners from his last 57 runners.

He starts the card at Doncaster on Saturday with a hot favourite in the Group Two Champagne Stakes with Rosallion looking to make it a hat-trick of wins and stay unbeaten.

In the Portland Handicap Hannon has a live chance with Happy Romance who effectively races off a mark of 97 having been a Group winner during her career and also at the end of the mark The Big Board will be looking to bounce back to form.

Hannon then runs Stratocracy in the Maiden Stakes having been seen twice already to date and if building on those experiences could go close.

Jockey To Follow - Clifford Lee

Clifford Lee has a few nice rides across the card at Doncaster on Saturday and having already notched a winner on the first day of the meeting with Darnation, he can add to that on Saturday.

His best ride of the afternoon comes in the Group Two Park Stakes with Spycatcher dropping into a weak Group Two having been beaten in a good Group One last time out in France by a short head.

Other runners of interest for the jockey on the card are Lightening Company off bottom weight in the Class 2 1m2f Handicap, debutant Otto Flash in the Maiden Stakes and Liberty Lane in the Finale who will enjoy any rain that falls.
