3.10 Doncaster, Friday, October 23

The Racing Post/SIS Betting Manager Handicap (3.10) at Doncaster on Friday, a 6-furlong contest featuring 22 runners, gives us something to work with and, as usual, we’ve highlighted a couple that we think could go well at rewarding odds.

Jamaica Bolt has failed to trouble the judge in five outings this term, but is consequently 1lb lower in the weights than when winning this race last year, on the prevailing good to soft going, so must be of interest once again. The Pivotal gelding is 3-31 on turf, which probably tells you all you need to know about, but is clearly capable enough on his day. Stall 1 is less than ideal, but he has everything lese in his favour and it would be unwise to right him off on the basis of an unfavourable track position alone.

Last year’s sixth, Mass Rally, is 14lb lower in the weights than last year and, consequently, 10lb better off for the 3½ lengths he finished behind Jamaica Bolt, which should be enough to reverse the form, particularly as he’s better drawn than his old rival, in stall 12, on this occasion. He’s on a losing run of 20, stretching back two seasons, so clearly comes with risks attached, but has been there or thereabouts on recent starts and certainly wouldn’t be winning out of turn.

Selections: Doncaster 3.10 Jamaica Bolt, Mass Rally
