13:40 Hoo Ya Mal

ITV Racing on Friday starts here with the Listed Flying Scotsman over 7-furlongs for juveniles. HOO YA MAL looks a really promising colt for the Green Team Racing crew that love this sport and he should go well for Andrew Balding and champion Oisin Murphy.

The 40,000 guineas Territories colt looks a good buy after winning the Convivial Maiden Stakes at York. I like that he stays well and seems to go on any ground. There are many promising types in here, but he is definitely one of them.

14:10 Chipotle

Now the Group 2 Flying Childers for two-year-olds over 5 furlongs. CHIPOTLE had Armor well beaten off in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot and he looks a fair each-way bet here. Since that big win some might say my hope hasn’t progressed like his old rival, but there have been reasons for his defeats.

I reckon he’s got a good each-way chance in this one for Eve Johnson Houghton and Charlie Bishop. It all started for him this season here at Doncaster in the Broklesby Conditions Stakes.

14:40 Stradivarius

It’s time for the Group 2 Doncaster Cup over 2m 2f. The ground won’t be soft enough for Trueshan, but even if he does run, I expect old boy STRADIVARIUS to be too good for the Gosdens and Frankie Dettori.

It was great to see the selection back to winning form at York last time in the Lonsdale Stakes and I see no reason why he won’t go in again. He’s not quite as good as he once was, but he’s only 4-5lbs off his peak rating, which still makes him very talented in this race.

15:15 Rhythmic Intent

A handicap here over an extended 1m 6f. RHYTHMIC INTENT would prefer some juice in the ground, but he has bits of form on a decent surface – including when fifth to Sam Cooke at York last time. Stuart Williams trains with Hollie Doyle up in the saddle and while he might be gearing up for the November Handicap later in the campaign, he might still have each-way chances here at biggish odds.

15:45 Able Kane

We end the day’s TV coverage with a handicap over an extended 6 furlongs and this is wide open. ABLE KANE is probably right at the ceiling of his handicap mark in terms of ability, but he’s in cracking form and has place claims at least for Rod Millman and Oisin Murphy.

Two fine runs at Goodwood and Newmarket in his last three starts have him bang in the picture, although the handicapper has him in a grip. The trip and the ground are ideal for him though.

So best of luck and pray for Yeeehaaas. You hear me Paddy?
