Race 1 Doncaster 12-25 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 19f

365365312 Gala De Corton
Runner-up twice in novices prior to improving again to make a winning handicap debut over 2m here a month ago. Up 6 lb but surprise if this lightly-raced sort from top yard has reached his limit.
11-12Angus CheledaPaul Nichollslocked5/15.5/110
365365288 Kavanaghs Cross
Some good placed efforts in handicaps prior to getting off mark in a 2m Kelso maiden last month. Backed that up with a fine second in Musselburgh handicap since. Should give another good account.
11-7Niall HoulihanIain Jardinelocked6.5/110/154
365365655 Jay Jay Reilly
Gradual progress in bumpers last term and struck at second attempt over hurdles when making all in 2m Kempton novice in November. Only third at Taunton since but retains potential now handicapping.
11-10Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked7/17/10
365365569 Romeo Brown
Knocked on the door last term and put it all together at second time of asking for new yard at Hexham (2m) in November. Fair fourth at Wetherby (2m again) since. Return to longer trip a help. Player.
11-6Thomas WillmottSue Smithlocked8/19/113
365365196 Grangeclare Glory
Fairly useful hurdler who ran up to his best when third of 9 in 19f Taunton novice 19 days ago. Ought to be competitive back in a handicap.
11-9Fergus GillardDavid Pipelocked8.5/19/16
3653651811 Inishbiggle
Improved to gain a second career success in C&D handicap 18 days ago. 5 lb rise demands a bit more again but unexposed profile provides hope for better still.
11-2Kevin BroganGary Hanmerlocked8.5/18.5/10
365365344 Creative Control
Winner of Sedgefield maiden and C&D handicap before Xmas. Could only manage third at Sedgefield on Boxing Day but no surprise if he resumes his progression with Peter Kavanagh taking handy 7 lb off.
11-10Peter KavanaghDonald McCainlocked9/19/10
365365313 Ted's Friend
Proved a different proposition second time up over hurdles when scoring at Plumpton (20.5f) in November. Found litfe tougher under a penalty over C&D since but is unexposed now handicapping.
11-11Max KendrickFergal O'Brienlocked11/120/182
365365301 Le Musee
Four-time Flat winner in 2020. Better effort in handicap hurdles since returning from an absence when 6 lengths fourth over 3m at Taunton. Back down in trip.
11-13Kieren BuckleyNigel Hawkelocked12/114/117
3653654213 Headscarf Lil
In the form of his life at present, winning around 2½m at Carlisle in October and Newcastle in December. Respected despite a further 7 lb rise.
10-12Sean QuinlanNicky Richardslocked12/112/10
36536514310 Hurricane Ali
Firmly on the up over hurdles last spring, winning 3 times. Also recorded a pair of good placed efforts when last seen at the end of the summer and claims if ready to roll on return.
11-4James BowenJohn Mackielocked14/116/114
3653656714 Black Ebony
Fair maiden who hasn't stood much racing thus far but made a good return to action when second in 20.5f Southwell handicap in November. Needs to show he can string good runs together now.
10-12Thomas Dowson Philip Kirbylocked16/120/125
365365397 Quest For Life
Dual scorer early in 2021. Back on song when third in Wetherby handicap in November but failed to back it up at Ayr since. Others are preferred.
11-8Tom MidgleyMark Walfordlocked33/133/10
3653655716 Walk In The Wild
Maiden hurdler who offered little in handicaps in November/December. A subsequent wind op needs to have made a big difference.
10-6Tom BellamyOliver Sherwoodlocked50/150/10
365365715 Near Kettering
Bagged handicap hurdles at Market Rasen and Carlisle in 2021. More miss than hit subsequently, never threatening at Haydock last weekend. Best to look elsewhere unless betting vibes strong.
10-10Jonathan EnglandSam Englandlocked66/166/10
3653653412 Lord Condi
Dual 3m Perth scorer for Iain Jardine in 2021 but never a threat in 2 runs for new yard last month.
