Cheltenham – Good
1.45 – NHS Vaccinating Heroes Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle
Samba Dancer has made smooth progression in 3 starts since moving across the Irish Sea to join the O’Brien-Mcpherson operation, winning twice recently including at handical level at Statford. He was well on top that day and a 6lb rise should not stop him running well again in deeper waters today. He’s not been missed in the betting but the yard know how to produce a winner or two at this meeting and must go well here.
4.40 – Mick Turner A Lifetime In Racing Novices Chase
Roi De Dubai has been a horse to follow this summer, winning and placing twice each since switching to the larger obstacles. His neck 2nd last time out at Perth off a mark of 142 makes him a key player in this lineup. This 9yo son of Dubai Destination can put that experience to good use and represents connections who won a race here yesterday. At the current prices he looks a solid each way bet to nothing.
Doncaster – Soft
