We waited and now it’s here the Flat season and The Don is up in Doncaster to review day 1 for you.
For paddock watchers Doncaster is perfect everything is right in front of the huge main stand so there is no excuse for anyone not to get a good look at anything they have backed.
We started with the Brockelsby, the first two year old race of the year. The Don had max betted the Bill Turner fave but was very worried come race time as the horse was very lit up in the preliminaries and wasted lots of energy before showtime. He led until half a furlong out before stopping and the race was won by a Mark Johnstone newcomer Rathbone. This might be decent form keep an eye on the first four home.
The ground was riding on the slow side of good but certainly not the heavy that was forecast and the Fahey team got it right by backing their good ground horse Gabrial to win the Lincoln as opposed to their soft ground horse Gabrial’s Kaka who had been smashed all week. All the Fahey horses I saw here yesterday were strikingly fit and raring to go. Please trust in the Don and watch this stable very closely in the early weeks of the turf as I’m convinced the winners will flow.
So it’s no surprise our Sunday cracker comes from Mr Fahey with Full on Clarets in the 2.15 at Doncaster. Back him to win at 9/2. With Skybet. He has apparently strengthened up well over the Winter and on breeding should love this trip.
These next few key weeks are massive for the Don so if you’re not already with me then get with me today and let’s make some profits.
It really is showtime so Trust in the Don he’s A number 1.
Back next Sunday.
