13:50 Doncaster Fillies’ Juvenile Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Listed Fillies; Juvenile hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 2 1/2f

Race Preview

WHITE PEPPER looks capable of putting another competitive run together as she strives to make further progress.

There have been two wins in the last three efforts from here. The first was juvenile hurdle success in October last year.

White Pepper doubled her tally with a score at Fairyhouse three weeks ago with an impressive jumping performance.

SEA SESSIONS looks strong as well after she baked a victory at Aintree in December.

That was, notably, a Listed level fixture. So that was a big piece of form for Sea Sessions who is up 5lb for that now.

She concedes weight to everyone else but should rate as a serious threat.

SIX FEET APART banked a win at Fairyhouse on her debut and has been knocking around in some strong competition since.

It’s been a Listed and then a Grade 3 race for Six Feet Apart the last twice and she was not disgraced in either of those.


Ones to watch: White Pepper 6/4, Sea Sessions 11/4

14:25 Doncaster Novices’ Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m

FOXHOLLOW has some good pedigree behind him which suggests that he can get himself a positive debut on Friday.

The Irish contender is an interesting one in the field.

CREGGAN WHITE HARE was at last year’s Cheltenham Festival and can boast a wealth of experience in this field.

There was a win for him in February last year as well. He has since switched yards, but it could be a highly positive move.

Creggan White Hart does have a chance over the hurdles.

RIDGEWAY is another debutant in this fixture. He is worth a look as well because the field is pretty thin looking at the form.

He is from a top yard, having his first run for David Skelton on Friday. Ridgeway did win on the flat and steps now into hurdling for the first time after a wind op.


Ones to watch: Ridgeway 9/4, Creggan White Hare 9/2

13:15 Doncaster Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2 handicap chase
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 2m

Race Preview

BEFORE MIDNIGHT has to be respected for this contest having completed a four-time on his penultimate run. That was done on a 2m trip at Ascot.

He was pushed up to Grade 2 last time out at Kempton and could not quite answer the questions that were posed there.

But this represents a drop in grade by some distance and therefore Before Midnight has to have a big chance.

FUNAMBULE SIVOLA didn’t have anything to offer on a run at Cheltenham a month ago, but there were excuses there. The trip was too much for starters.

Looking back at the form before that, there are positives there for Funambule Sivola.

He was particularly progressive on his first season over the fences the last term.

A four-time winner in 2021, Funambule Sivola could be worth revisiting to bounce back from that Cheltenham misfire.

MOONLIGHTER made a pretty good impression on his latest run, taking a third at Sandown.

That was the venue at which he last won, that victory happening in January last year.

So it’s been a while since he has scored. But Moonlighter looks to be on a good mark if he can find a way to build on that recent run.

Tip: Funambule Sivola 5/4

Ones to watch: Before Midnight 10/3, Moonlighter 13/2

14:35 Huntington Mares’ Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Listed Mares’ Chase
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 2m 3 1/2f

Race Preview

MASKADA will be looking to double up after landing a win in a 2m listed chase at Leicester a couple of weeks ago.

That was a nice step forward in form from here and Maskada looks to be a good consistent one with plenty of ability to still be unlocked.

Against her own sex Maskada should go well again as a little more is asked of her coming up on a trip.

VIENNA COURT is thriving at the moment having posted back to back successes. She’s looked different so far this season.

The latest of those two wins was at Cheltenham and Vienna Court got to the line impressively a month ago. She should be right in the thick of it.

PINK LEGEND opened with a win on her reappearance over the fences at Ascot. The follow-up didn’t happen, however.

Pink Legend is a likeable one, but she is looking for a revival as her last two efforts have been sub-par. Based on that Ascot form she is no forlorn hope, however.

Tip: Vienna Court 8/13

Ones to watch: Maskada 10/3, Pink Legend 8/1

15:10 Huntingdon Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2 handicap hurdle
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 3m 1f

Race Preview

TIP TOP CAT completed a hattrick at Taunton a month ago with plenty to spare. He is rapidly going through the gears at the moment.

There is probably still plenty more to come from him, so Tip Top Cat easily lands himself on the shortlist for Friday’s run.

GAZETTE BOURGEOISE is another that is in a good positive comparative form at the moment.

He was under a penalty on her latest and shrugged it off to score at Hereford in a handicap three weeks ago.

There is some good stuff in her form having beaten one at Hereford that has since gone on to win.

BELLS OF PETERBORO had a good run at Chepstow last month and is nice and progressive at the moment.

He’s unexposed around the 3md distance, so there could be something in this for him.

He comes up 8l for scoring cosily last time out and Bells Of Peterboro should make his presence felt.

Tip: TIP TOP CAT 11/4

Ones to watch: Gazette Bourgeoise 7/2, Bells Of Peterboro 11/4

14:00 Huntingdon Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 2m 4 1/2f

Race Preview

PRESENT VALUE landed a win last time out which was at Leicester in December on his first run for a new yard.

There was a lot to like about his attitude there. Present Value is up 5lb but not to be dismissed on Friday.

LEGAL RIGHTS is in very good heart at the moment and won thanks to a commanding performance at Hereford last time out.

There has been a further 7lb rise for him. But Legal Rights had the beating of one at Hereford that has science gone on to win.

The extra trip is going to help further and Legal Rights may well be the one to beat in this contest if he continues his journey.

LET’S HAVE ANOTHER is yet to get off the market but made a good impression on his hurdles debut in December.

He took a credible runner-up place and the move to this middle distance looks like a good option for him. The switch to handicaps is a boon as well.

Tip: Legal Rights 7/2

Ones to watch: Present Value 11/2, Let’s Have Another 4/1
