Doncaster Jumps Preview

11:55 - Boss Man Fred

To start the day at Doncaster we have a Class 3 Handicap Hurdle over three miles and the favourite for Dan Skelton Boss Man Fred is our selection.

The five year old is three out of three during his career landing a point to point in March and since going to the Skelton yard he is two from two over hurdles.

This season he landed a Class 4 with ease at Kempton and in a sightly better race at Southwell he did the same and although needing to progress again he holds the best form in the contest.

12:25 - Maire Banrigh

Another Class 3 Handicap follows but this time over fences and in this two mile event we are looking for a quick-fire Dan Skelton Double with Maire Banrigh.

This seven year old has been in red hot form during the last two years winning all four of her contests and looking like a smart mare who was bought for £320,000.

She has been raced three times this season at Carlisle, Stratford and last time out at Warwick where she gave a career best to see off the smart Thomas Darby.

13:35 - La Bague Au Roi

The feature race of the card at Doncaster we fancy last seasons star mare La Bague Au Roi to take the Yorkshire Silver Vase Mares Chase.

This mare was remarkable last season getting off the mark in a beginners chase at Newbury and then just weeks later followed that up in superb style at the same track over course and distance in a Grade Two.

Boxing Day was calling and at odds 8/1 she went on to surprise many by landing the Grade One Kauto Star Novices Chase seeing off some superb competition in Topofthegame and Santini.

Strangely Warren Greatrex took her over to Ireland at Leopardstown and entered her in the Grade One Flogas Novices Chase which again she prevailed nicely and looked a serious chaser to be respected.

She finished her season off at Aintree in the Manifesto Novices Chase where she was outshined by Kalashnikov but still ran nicely.

This season she has not quite found the sound form being pulled up on her seasonal debut at Wetherby in the Charlie Hall Chase and then she finished third in the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon.

If she is anywhere near her best on Sunday she goes on to win this contest.

14:10 - Sometimes Always

Our penultimate selection of the afternoon at Doncaster comes in the Class 4 Novices Hurdle over 2 miles 3 furlongs and Sometimes Always for trainer Ian Williams looks an exciting type.

The four year old gelding has ran twice in his short career with both his runs coming at Ascot in November and he finsiehd fourth and fifth in big fielded races.

He started off in a bumper where he showed plenty of scope and Ian Williams moved him straight over hurdles where again he gave a positive run to suggest he is an improving type.

14:45 - Bob Mahler

The Class 3 Handicap Chase over three miles rounds off our selections for Doncaster on Sunday and Bob Mahler for Warren Greatrex is our selection.

The seven year old gelding has only ever won during the summer and spring but is now down to a very feasible mark that makes him highly attractive to break his winter duck.

Last time out at Haydock in November he finished a fair third behind some really progressive horses and now in what looks a weaker race he holds every chance.
