We have Doncaster Cup Stakes racing odds to look forward to Friday, which is the highlight of the day’s racing action.

The great Stradivarius steps back into action in a race that he has won before. Not only that, we will finally get to see him square off against Trueshan.

That should be an epic battle between the two of them in this Group 2 contest. Who gets the job done?

We look at all of the 7 declared runners in this contest for our Doncaster Cup Stakes Racing preview.

Stradivarius 10/11 FAV in Doncaster Cup Stakes Racing Odds

It is the return of STRADIVARIUS as he looks to land his third win in four runs this season.

Granted, this year hasn’t seen him really on top of his game. For being the dominant stayer for a few years now, he has been a little below par.

He could only manage a fourth-place finish in the Royal Ascot Gold Cup on his penultimate race, for example.

On his follow up, Stradivarius had to dig really deep to hold off the exciting Spanish Mission in the Lonsdale Cup.

Stradivarius just got there by a head and no more. So the great one has been under pressure this season.

This is a race he has won before, claiming the victory in 2019.

The positive also from that recent York effort was that he showed he is up for a fight as he scrapped with Spanish Mission.

He is a quote of 10/11 to land the score and can never be written off* (odds recorded at 20:56 GMT on September 9th, 2021 at Coral)



Can Trueshan topple Stradivarius?

Finally, we get to see what TRUESHAN can do against Stradivarius, and Alan King’s 5-year-old has serious claims.

He is such a tough horse and he picked up a win at the Goodwood Cup in July on his latest effort.

That does mean he has taken a slightly longer rest than Stradivarius has, which could play to his advantage.

Another advantage for Trueshan on Friday could be the weather. There’s some rain possibly around and that will boost his chances.

The Goodwood Cup success came on the mud and he looks to have plenty within him for staying efforts. Will the ground be the dictating factor?

Trueshan is a quote of 15/8 to take the win in Doncaster Cup Stakes racing odds* (odds recorded at 20:56 GMT on September 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Rodrigo Diaz with strong place claims

RODRIGO DIAZ was last seen taking on Geoffrey Freer and he put together a good effort in that one.

He found only Hukum too good on the day. For this one on Friday, Rodrigo Diaz comes back up on a trip and that’s likely to help his cause.

The 4-year-old has proven himself in terms of consistency, noting having been outside of the top three in any of his last six efforts.

He has won here at Doncaster already this season and has subsequently put in very strong runs at Kempton and Newbury.

This looks to be all about the right trip now for Rodrigo Diaz who has place claims.

He is a quote of 13/2 in horse racing betting* (odds recorded at 20:56 GMT on September 9th, 2021 at Coral).

Can Nayef Road rediscover his touch?

It has, by and large, been a pretty disappointing 2021 for NAYEF ROAD, who is better than what he has produced.

Twelve months ago he was right there, challenging Stradivarius at Ascot and Goodwood.

Nayef Road currently looks a long way from a performance like that.

But it is in him. Mark Johnston’s five year certainly needs a big bounceback performance at some point.

His winless streak is growing. Nayef Road is a quote of 18/1* (odds recorded at 20:56 GMT on September 9th, 2021 at Coral).

The Rest Of The Runners

THE GRAND VISIR has been in good consistent form this season. He was third in the Lonsdale Cup on his latest.

He never looked like winning the contest, finishing behind winner Stradivarius there.

While there are nice pieces of form like a third in the Queen Alexandra this season, it’s hard to make a case for him toppling some big guns in this one.

EAGLES BY DAY picked up a win in a Group 3 last summer and looked like a rising threat at the end of last season.

Things, however, have been really poor for him this season and he’s tried with the tongue-tie for the first time.

ALERTA ROJA completed a hattrick on her penultimate run. That was a score at Ascot on a 2m trip in July.

She picked things up very well too in a Listed second-place finish in Germany last time. This is a big ask of her right now, however.

Predictions & Tips for Doncaster Cup Stakes Racing Odds

Because things just slightly hang on the conditions being right here for TRUESHAN in this staying sphere, we just have to pass on him.

Without question, he should produce a big run and get some pressure on STRADIVARIUS who hasn’t been quite on top of his game this season.

But the thing with Stradivarius is that if he’s in the mood, he can produce the type of performance that no one else in this field can.

Stradivarius, therefore, is the 10/11 horse racing tip* (odds recorded at 20:56 GMT on September 9th, 2021 at Coral).
