Horse racing tips: 3 Friday fancies from Newbury and Doncaster

We're Flat out for winners on the level.




17:05 Newbury – Mr Smith  

Mr Smith has won all three starts since returning from a lengthy absence, digging deep to win on the Flat at Carlisle before recording impressive, wide-margin wins over jumps at Galway and Roscommon.

Charles Byrnes’s eight-year-old looks well treated on his return to the Flat, running off a mark just 6lb higher than at Carlisle, and will relish these testing conditions and the emphasis being placed on stamina. He should prove tough to beat in a race lacking depth.

13:50 Doncaster – Borsdane Wood  

Borsdane Wood should appreciate the step up to a mile for the first time and is taken to complete a hat-trick for Karl Burke. He looked better the further he went at Southwell last time, finding plenty under pressure, and there could be more to come from a colt who has improved with each start so far.

The form of the Burke yard increases confidence as the trainer has had five winners since Saturday.

16:00 Newbury – Molls Memory  

Molls Memory turned in a rare poor effort over six furlongs at Newmarket last time, failing to beat a rival having never travelled. However, she had performed well on her previous start over seven furlongs at Haydock, only just failing to secure a third win of the campaign.

She has largely been consistent this season, bar a couple of notable blips, and would have a good chance if bouncing back from that disappointing showing at Newmarket. She is worth another chance.
