It’s off to Town Moor for a superb seven-race afternoon card from Doncaster on Wednesday.

The action is highlighted by a competitive two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase at 14:00.

IMPORTANT - the meeting must survive an 8am Wednesday morning inspection. Fingers firmly crossed.

Doncaster tips, Wednesday

  • 12.20 - Iron Horse @ 20/1
  • 14.00 - Demachine @ 7/2
  • 15.05 - Fenland Tiger @ 7/2

12.20 - Iron Horse @ 20/1

There are some welcome big-field handicaps at Doncaster on Weds and the jumping gets underway with 18 runners going to post in a conditional & amateur jockeys' handicap hurdle run over three miles and half a furlong.

The 13-year-old Iron Horse won’t have too many more years on a racecourse, but Richard Phillips’s charge looks up to going well at a big price.

Iron Horse has had only 18 career starts and there aren’t many miles on the clock for a 13-year-old. The son of Kayf Tara earned a peak hurdles rating of 120 in 2019 and he is racing off a mark of 98 this afternoon.

Clearly, the ability may have waned during that period, but perhaps not to the extent that the market expects.

Iron Horse was traveling pretty well before falling in a competitive handicap chase at Chepstow last year and there was enough in that run to suggest the fire still burns.

14.00 - Demachine @ 7/2

Demachine is a youngster compared to Iron Horse and the ten-year-old can score for Kerry Lee in the feature handicap chase at 14:00.

The son of Flemensfirth has dropped 3lb below his last winning mark and he looks ready to strike.

Demachine appears to be well suited by decent ground on a flat tack and that is exactly what is in store for Lee’s charge this afternoon.

A mark of 133 looks fair and April’s excellent run in the Topham at Aintree suggests all the ability remains.

15.05 - Fenland Tiger @ 7/2

Fenland Tiger caught the eye when traveling smoothly into contention at Carlisle last time out, and while Sam England’s charge failed to see his race out as anticipated, there was a lot of promise in that performance.

The eight-year-old failed to settle early on at Carlisle, but there should be a good pace to aim at this afternoon and that can see Fenland Tiger finish the job to better effect.

England’s runner is having only his third chase start, he is unexposed over fences and today’s three-mile-and-two-furlong trip and good-to-soft ground suit perfectly.
