Doncaster Betting Tips Saturday

With so many meetings scheduled throughout the year, there are several Saturday fixtures at Doncaster Racecourse. Tips from Will Smith are published by 9am on the day of the races except for ante-post tips which can become available several weeks or months in advance.

Doncaster Racecourse

Both flat and jumps races take place throughout the year at Doncaster with the course being flat, left-handed, pear-shaped and considered to be one of the fairest in the country.

Flat Course

The flat course hosts the first and last turf race meets of the flat season and is 1 mile 7½ furlongs around but also has a straight mile course which the Lincoln Handicap uses in March.

The course is essentially flat with the exception of Rose Hill which is a climb and descent along the back straight.

Jumps Course

Although the ground can sometimes be rather testing, the fences on the jumps course are relatively easy. The course is again flat with sweeping bends and known to be fair.

Doncaster Feature Races

Racing takes place throughout the year at Doncaster Racecourse but September is the biggest month by far with the St Leger Festival taking place.

The St Leger Festival is a four-day festival that is one of the highlights of the Autumn season and attracts visitors to Doncaster from all over the country and features both the Doncaster Cup and the St Leger Stakes.

Doncaster Cup – The Doncaster Cup was established ten years before the St. Leger Stakes back in 1766 and is Doncaster’s oldest horse race. It is the final race of the Stayers’ Triple Crown, with the other two being the Gold Cup and the Goodwood Cup. The race is held on the third day of the St. Leger Festival and is one of the country’s leading events for stayers.

St. Leger Stakes – From Britain’s five Classics that includes the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, 1,000 Guineas Stakes, The Oaks and The Derby, the St. Leger Stakes is the longest and last to take place in the year. It is also the final leg of the English Triple Crown.

Betting Tips For Doncaster

Flat

  • Left-handed, galloping track, fairly flat with the odd uphill/downhill stretch (gentle)
  • Lincoln meeting in March, St Leger Festival in September and Vetem Futurity (October) the big events on the Flat. 
  • Draw bias varies on the straight course
  • Andrew Balding with a near 19% strike-rate (18/96) in the last 5 years is respected. Don’t overlook outsiders – winners at 12/1, 16/1 (twice), 18/1 and 33/1 in that time.
  • Ralph Beckett with a near 20% strike-rate (19/96) in the last 5 years. Includes winners at 12/1, 22/1 and 25/1
  • Adam Kirby (14/82) showing a healthy profit with his rides in the last 5 years. 4 winners at double figures helping (20/1, 10/1, 12/1, 16/1).
  • David Allan (15/126) similar with big priced winners at 16/1, 22/1, 28/1, 14/1 (twice) and 16/1. 

Jumps

  • Left-handed, galloping track, fairly flat with the odd uphill/downhill stretch
  • Races can change dramatically late on
  • Great Yorkshire Chase (January) the main race over jumps
  • Ben Pauling (11/79) respected. Don’t ignore outsiders – 4 of those were prices 12/1 or bigger
  • Nicky Richards 25% strike-rate (5/20) respected in chases – winners at 40/1 and 18/1 among them. Second/Third’s at 18/1, 14/1, 12/1 and 16/1.
  • Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero 33.33% strike-rate (4/12) over fences plus three places.
  • Kim Bailey 2/4 plus a placed horse respected in bumpers
  • Paddy Brennan (11/37) for a near 30% strike-rate respected 
  • Charlie Todd (8/30) for a near 27% strike-rate does well. Small sample size but particularly of note when teaming up with Nick Kent (2/3 – the other fell)
