3:40 Doncaster Racing Tips (17th June)

Free Horse Racing Tips
A nice looking class 3 race but too many negatives to be 100% sure of anything. Boy In The Bar 11/2 is capable of running a fast time but doesn't win as often as it should plus I'm not sure these flatter courses suit it but it could make the frame, Huntsman's Close 33/1 would need to burst back to form to win here but never say never, Naggers 12/1 doesn't want the going to be too fast so the predicted g/f going may find it out, Related 16/1 is a front running type who could go well on this type of course, my selection would be Moonraker 10/1 if it wasn't drawn in stall 1 which means it will need a degree of luck to win here, I've mentioned the 5 that could win this race and I will look to dutch them all to small stakes here.
This is a Listed race but only 6 runners and half of them are 3 year olds, I can find a reason to back all 6 of them and I've only got 1 small negative against any, it will be a race to watch and enjoy for me.
Down to class 4 but a competitive affair where I've only got 2 of the 9 with negatives and 1 of those is a 3 year old which is capable of improving, so only 1 lay, Grey Galleon has been off the course for a longtime and may need this run for fitness and would still have to improve a couple of pounds from when it was last seen, Open Wide 6/1 is 2nd top on a time from Windsor last year but has been placed in 3 of its 4 runs this year and this is a drop in class from its last 3 runs, it may need further to show its absolute best as it was staying on but not getting there when doing its best time it ought to make the frame and I may have a covering bet on this one but I'm hoping UNION ROSE 18/1 who I hope tries to lead all the way from stall 4 and if the jockey gets the fractions right it could have enough in the tank to repel any challengers but I have to admit its not been at its best lately but this is a very good opportunity for it to adopt the front running tactics again which were deployed when today's jockey won on it at Bath.

Union Rose 20/1 6th
