Who To Follow On Day Two Of The St Leger Festival

Horse To Follow - Enbihaar

One of the feature races of the day on Thursday is the Group Two Park Hill Stakes over a decent trip and the favourite Enbihaar our horse in that race to follow and the filly on the day that takes the eye.

The John Gosden trained four year old has been superb this season winning three of her contest and finishing second in the other but her last two runs have really shown how good she is.

Two starts ago at Haydock she took the Group Two Lancashire Oaks in great style and when stepped up in trip was even better at Goodwood taking the Lillie Langtry Stakes.

Again, this is another tough test but Gosden has been very precise and patient with her this season and if performing anything like her last few runs you can't see anything beating her.

Trainer To Follow - Roger Varian

Roger Varian is a trainer that seems to getting better and better each year with acquiring some special talent and credible relationships with big time owners.

At the start of the season he jetted off like the clappers gaining winners galore but has found it slightly harder at some of the big festivals but we believe here at Doncaster he can take full advantage.

On day two of the St Leger meeting he holds some strong entries that can get him on the board with the first big chance coming in the first race of the day.

The top weighted Stylistique has only run three times but could go off favourite in the first having finished a smart fourth last time out at Goodwood in a Group Three and drop down to Class 2 company makes him very appealing.

The big one for Varian though comes in the last race and Mutamaasik is a huge eye-catcher with the three year old gelding showing class in abundance since taking to the track with a second on debut and a hat-trick of wins in his four outings.

Varian won the race back in 2017 with Lahore and has a great chance of doing so again with this gelding who although being 10lb higher in the weights looks to be a class act.

He could turn out to be a Group horse in the making with his form being franked ever since his debut run.

Jockey To Follow - Jim Crowley

Finally the jockey we believe will have a good day on Thursday is Jim Crowley with him being the retained rider for Hamdan Al Maktoum's operations in the UK and the owner having some big chances.

We have previously mentioned the horses and why we think they will go well on the second day but with Jim Crowley in the saddle, on any horse, they have an even bigger chance.

Enbihaar and Mutamaasik look to be the stand out pairing at Doncaster on Thursday and should attract a fair amount of attention with some bookmakers sure to be wary of the double.

Jim Crowley has had another stellar season picking up Group One wins and big festival wins on numerous horses and he will be hoping to keep that record up at the St Leger meeting.

When The Fun Stops. Stop.
