Racing fans can look forward to eight race meetings across the UK and Ireland on Saturday, including an evening card at Doncaster.
There are six races planned at the South Yorkshire track, with the first contest due to commence at 6:15. The going is expected to be good to soft-soft in places on the Town Moor course, with the final contest due to start at 8:45.
6.15 – Burj Malinka @ 3/1
Betfred customers can take advantage of the “Extra Place Race” promotion in Saturday’s opener at Doncaster, with three places up for grabs in an apprentice handicap contest.
Burj Malinka will hopefully not need to compete for the minor honours, as he returns to Doncaster for the first time since a third-place finish in April.
The five-year-old has not won since August 2022, but connections have seen their runner finish third on three occasions this summer.
Little Muddy, who won that race over C&D in April, has since won at Ayr and finished second at York, so the form is solid, and Adrian Nicholls’ runner can land the spoils in the opener at Doncaster.
7.45 – Game Set @ 9/4
Owen Burrows and his team have enjoyed themselves this summer with Game Set, with the son of Kodiac looking to complete a hat-trick.
Connections have known nothing but winning since the three-year-old made his debut in June, winning at Doncaster under James Doyle. He was victorious once again last month, winning at Wolverhampton over the same distance of seven furlongs.
Saturday’s rivals have more experience than Game Set, but Game Set is the only three-year-old in the race, and he may be able to beat the handicapper one more time with another victory at the Yorkshire track.
8.45 – Graham @ 7/2
Our third and final tip comes from the last race of the day at Doncaster, and Graham should be able to deliver the goods for connections.
The three-year-old has been so consistent of late, finishing in the top four in all of his races in May. Connections decided to geld their charge in January, and it has been vindicated, with the son of Time Test able to compete for place money all season.
He has caught the eye this summer, and he was on top of the remainder when finishing second at Newbury to Finest Leader earlier this month.
If he can repeat that level of performance, he should be the one to beat in Saturday’s final race.
