David Williams of Ladbrokes said this morning: “Rewilding continues to be strongly backed and his odds have dropped steadily from the 7/4 offered on Sunday.”


Eddie Ahern (Snow Fairy jockey) said: “It is great to get the ride. The way she won at the Curragh makes you think she will stay all day.”

Ed Dunlop (Snow Fairy trainer) said: “Following Monday’s heavy rain, the weather has done a u-turn on Town Moor, and things are looking much more favourable, though they are talking of a possible eight millimetres of rain on Friday night, so we will have to hope that they have got that wrong.

'”Snow Fairy is in great form, and, while it’s disappointing that we can’t have Ryan Moore, who has been claimed by Sir Michael Stoute for Total Command, Eddie Ahern is a more than able deputy. Eddie did the job for us on Native Khan in the Solario Stakes at Sandown, and let’s hope we get lucky together again.”

Mark Tompkins (Ted Spread) said: “It (the ground) will suit our runner today but certainly not Ted on Saturday, so we need it to rain on Friday - let’s hope for once the forecasters are right.

“I think the St Leger is a fantastic race and this year’s is especially competitive. Ted is in as good form as I can have him and the more rain the better.”

Jeremy Noseda (Theology) said: “There is no doubt that we have a lot to find in what looks to be a rock-solid Leger, however, I do feel that he is a progressive horse.

“He will handle any cut in the ground and there are definitely reasons to forgive his last run at Goodwood. He is guaranteed to relish the trip.”

David Williams, Doncaster’s Clerk of the Course reported this evening: “I am leaving the going description as good overnight.

“The current forecast is for a band of rain to pass over, with up to seven millimetres to arrive by 1.00pm tomorrow. Conditions should then be largely overcast for racing on Friday.

“Another band of rain is then forecast to arrive from Friday night into Saturday morning, with up to 10 millimetres predicted to fall by 10.00am on Saturday.

“We should then hopefully experience brighter conditions for the Ladbrokes St Leger on Saturday afternoon.”


Tomorrow’s highlight is the £100,000 Doncaster Cup (2.40pm) over two and a quarter miles. First run in 1766, the historic event is the oldest race still run under the Rules of Racing.

This year’s contest sees a rematch between Askar Tau and Darley Sun, who were separated by just a neck in the 2009 Doncaster Cup. Askar Tau subsequently finished unplaced in two Group One events at Longchamp, the Prix du Cadran and the Prix Royal Oak, and has not been seen out since finishing eighth to Illustrious Blue on his only outing this year in the Group Three Sagaro Stakes at Ascot in April. Blinkered for the first time tomorrow, although he has worn a visor in the past, the Marcus Tregoning-trained five-year-old will be attempting to become the first horse to win back-to-back Doncaster Cups since Millenary in 2004 and 2005 (the first of Millenary’s wins was a dead-heat with Kasthari).

After his close second last year, Darley Sun was the proverbial “good thing” for the Cesarewitch at Newmarket, where he had already been allotted just 8st 6lb, and he duly hacked up by five lengths. Transferred to the Godolphin operation for this season, he has failed to build on last season’s promise in three outings.

Trainer Gordon Elliott famously burst on to the scene with Silver Birch’s victory in the 2007 Grand National and the young Irishman has proved just as adept with his Flat performers, with Dirar landing the Ebor at York last month. Another Irish trainer better known for his jumpers, Noel Meade, saddles Pointilliste, formerly a high-class performer in France for Elie Lellouche and fifth on his debut for current connections in a Listed contest at Leopardstown in July.

The Michael Jarvis-trained Opinion Poll has been in great form this year with a brace of Listed victories proceeding his triumph in the Group Two Lonsdale Cup at York last month, when he had the re-opposing Samuel half a length back in second, Electrolyser, who was short of room in the closing stages, a further length back in fourth and Tastahil sixth.

Sir Mark Prescott saddled the last three-year-old filly to win the Doncaster Cup in the shape of 2001 scorer Alleluia and is represented by a similar contender tomorrow with Motrice. A typical Prescott preparation has seen the daughter of Motivator collect handicaps at Yarmouth, Haydock and York, before she finished a staying-on third in the Group Three Lillie Langtry Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on her first start in Pattern race company. If she were to win tomorrow, Motrice would look a very interesting Cesarewitch prospect, for which she is currently allotted just 8st 5lb (a victory tomorrow would incur a 4lb penalty for the Newmarket contest).

Completing tomorrow’s line-up is the Jeff Pearce-trained mare Dayia, one of the most thorough stayers in training, who needs cut in the ground to be seen at her best. She will be making her first start in Group race company tomorrow.


Today’s attendance on DFS Ladies Day at Doncaster came to around 15,000, an increase of 1,000 over last year’s crowd on the corresponding day.

Mark Spincer, Managing Director of Doncaster Racecourse, said: “It has been a fantastic DFS Ladies Day and we are looking forward to the final two days of the Ladbrokes St Leger Festival.”

The first-day crowd yesterday was also up by 1,000 as more than 6,000 people came through the turnstiles.


This year’s winner of the best dressed lady in Doncaster is Victoria Slingsby, an Environmental Heath Officer from Peterborough.

Victoria will receive the use of a Mini Cooper convertible for a whole year courtesy of sponsors DFS, bespoke jewellery from Glitzed2bitz, a year’s free gym membership from Nuffield Health, dinner, bed and breakfast for two at the Crown Hotel, Bawtry, a £150 gift voucher to spend in store at Coast in Meadowhall, a £150 gift voucher to spend in store at Chique Designer Boutique in Armthorpe, a £100 gift voucher for a bespoke fascinator from Funky Fascinators, and an £80 gift voucher from Zest Bar & Grill in Doncaster.

Victoria said: “I only came up to see my Mum, who is from Bessacar.”


Liz Akroyd from Hull beat off strong competition from second-placed Miss Wetherby, Julie Moore and today’s Miss Doncaster, Victoria Slingsby, who was third, to win the best dressed lady in Yorkshire competition.

Liz, the best dressed lady at Ripon, wins a luxury pampering pyjama party for six, with a Ladies Indulgence package the next morning, at the Best Western Mount Pleasant Hotel and Spa near Doncaster.

Liz, who was wearing a charming off the shoulder dress in oyster silk by Karen Millen, said: “I love going racing, you meet loads of nice people.

“I own a dress shop in Hull, though I am a bit of a traitor as this is not from my own shop.”

Liz, a regular racegoer, added:”I didn’t expect to win today.”

Doncaster St Leger Meeting, Friday and Saturday, September 10 & 11 (Channel 4 and At The Races)

Only races that are due to be shown on terrestrial television will be broadcast on At The Races and the only enquiries to be televised are those that might affect the result of the race.

Race 1 - EBF crownhotel-bawtry.com Maiden Stakes - Winning Quotes


It can only have been a few pixels separating the first and second in Thursday’s opener, the mile-long EBF crownhotel-bawtry.com Maiden Stakes, but it was enough to hand the appropriately-named debutant Picture Editor a short-head verdict over Nathaniel.

Racing in the famous green, pink and white silks of owner Khalid Abdulla, the two-year-old Dansili colt hails from the same family as former Abdulla stars Derby winner Commander In Chief, Irish Derby runner-up Deploy and Warning, the star miler of the late 1980s.

Despite showing inexperience, Picture Editor delivered a strong late run in the final furlong and battled on well to record a 10/1 success.

Trainer Henry Cecil and the owner’s racing manager Lord Grimthorpe were not present, but winning jockey Tom Queally was quick to sing the colt’s praises.

He said: “He was just a little bit green in the middle of the race but picked up well. He was just starting to idle a little coming to the line but it was a nice performance. If he can build on that, then he should be OK.

“He will stay well. He travelled well early on in the race but he just hit a little bit of a flat spot and was a little bit green. I wasn’t too hard on him - I gave one smack, which was the difference between winning or losing and thank goodness we got the verdict.

“It was a very good performance when you consider that was his first run. You also have to remember that the second horse had already had a run.

“The ground is getting a bit quicker now.”

John Gosden, trainer of the 5/6 favourite Nathaniel who was beaten a short-head into second by newcomer Picture Editor, commented: "Nathaniel ran a great race. He did not see the other one coming and was coming back at the winner at the end. We are delighted with him - a lovely run.

"He is bred to be a mile and a half horse and it is very much about next year with him. We were going to run here or one more time. We will now see whether we want to knock off his maiden or wait for a mile and quarter next spring.

"Arctic Cosmos, our Ladbrokes St Leger runner, is in good form."


Tom Queally, on board the winner Picture Editor, said: “It is quicker than yesterday and will be getting quicker all the time.”

William Buick, rider of the second Nathaniel, said: “Good.”

Frankie Dettori, partner of third placed Genius Beast, said: “Just on the fast side of good.”

Ryan Moore, rider of the fourth home Audacious, said: “Good to firm.”

Dane O’Neill, on board Henry Chettle, said: “On the slow side of good.”

Franny Norton, rider of Indian Jack, said: “It is a bit quicker than yesterday.”

Tadhg O’Shea, rider of Lejaam, described the going as: “ Beautiful.”:

Richard Hills, partner of Musnad, said: “It is on the quick side of good.”

Philip Makin, jockey of Oasis Storm, thought the going: “Just on the quick side of good.”

Richard Hughes, rider of Silverware, said: “On the fast side of good.”

Phillip Robinson, jockey of Smart George, said: “Good to firm.”

Eddie Ahern, rider of Spartan King, said: “Good.”

Martin Lane, partner of Tiger’s Pride, said: “Slightly on the firm side of good.”

Lee Vickers, jockey of Lady Chloe, said: “Beautiful ground, though on the quick side.”

Frankie McDonald, rider of Tarantella Lady, said: “Just on the quick side of good.”

Race 2 - DFS Handicap - Winning Quotes


Royal Destination was the decisive winner of the 10-furlong DFS Handicap and is likely to continue to race through the autumn.

Partnered by champion jockey Ryan Moore, the five-year-old was sent into the lead entering the final quarter mile and saw off all challengers, eventually come three and a half lengths to the good over Sweet Lightening.

Tom Morley, assistant to trainer Jeremy Noseda, commented: “He looked to get first run today and Ryan has given him an absolute peach of a ride. He angled out coming off the bend and we probably hit the front a little earlier than we wanted but he ran right the way to the line.

“This horse is a proper servant to the yard. He wins his races every year - he was very progressive last season - and it was a good return to form last time out at York. I thought that he was going to win there but he has gone and done it today.

“I hope the handicapper doesn’t treat him too harshly. He went up 5lb for his run at York last time which seemed a bit harsh as he was beaten.

“The horse really comes to life at this time of year. We will talk to the owners and see what they want to do. He could be a possible for the Cambridgeshire (for which sponsors totesport go 20/1 from 33/1).

“We would have liked a bit more rain for Warling in the DFS Park Hill Stakes (3.45pm) but she’s here with a chance. She has never run over the trip but we hope that it will suit and we will see how we get on.”

Noseda’s stable is represented by Theology in Saturday’s Ladbrokes St Leger, who will be partnered by Paul Hanagan, the rider who currently leads the jockeys’ championship.

Morley continued: “We are not going to complain about having Paul aboard Theology on Saturday. The way he is riding at the moment, he could get a tune out of a rusty wheelbarrow.”

Race 3 - Weatherbys Insurance £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes - Winning Quotes


Wootton Bassett made it four wins from as many starts with victory in the valuable Weatherbys Insurance £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes. Partnered by Paul Hanagan, the Iffraaj juvenile show significant resilience as he resisted the challenge of Galtymore Lad by a length to reward favourite backers at 2/1.

Following his victory in the similarly lucrative DBS Premier Yearling Stakes at York last month, Wootton Bassett has now earned over £347,000. Trainer Richard Fahey now has his eyes set on a Pattern race for the talented colt.

Fahey said: “He is a good hardy horse and he is getting better. It’s massive money - £193,000 - and I was never in doubt that I was coming here for this race.

“I think he must have improved since his win at York as he had an 8lb turnaround with the second today (Galtymore Lad also finished second at York).

“Paul (Hanagan, jockey) said the race did him good today. He has so much speed but Paul said once he got hold of him today, he wasn’t going to get beat. I thought we were going to get beat but then I wasn’t riding him!

“I think we have to go for a Group race with him now. The seven-furlong race at Longchamp on Arc day would probably be the preferred target although he is also in the Mill Reef at Newbury, which may come at bit quick, an the Middle Park at Newmarket. His dam won over 10 furlongs and this horse looks like he will stay.

“These sales races are competitive and they are true run races. The horse is very professional.

“At home he is exceptional. He beat the third (Premier Clarets) by 10 lengths at home but obviously hasn’t beaten him by that far today so we haven’t seen totally what he can do on the racecourse.

“I was nervous coming into today’s race. I was so nervous I wasn’t able to eat my lunch but I blamed it on undercooked lamb!”

Paul Hanagan added: “Kieren (Fallon, rider of the second) joined me and then just headed me but my horse battled on well and the further we went, the further I was going to win by.
“When he came back in it was like he hadn’t had a race and he is a credit to all the team at home.”

Race 4 - DFS Park Hill Stakes - Winning Quotes


Eastern Aria showed all of her courage to register a gutsy length victory over Rumoush in the “Fillies St Leger” - the £100,000 Group Two DFS Park Hill Stakes over the full Leger distance of one mile, six furlongs and 132 yards. In front from around the two furlong marker, the daughter of Halling looked sure to be overhauled but just kept finding something extra for jockey Frankie Dettori. The 2/1 favourite Meeznah finished third.

Trainer Mark Johnston was not present on Town Moor, as he is currently flying out the USA to purchase horses at the Keeneland Sales but his wife Deirdre remarked: “Mark has left for the US, but I have been texting him all the results and no doubt he will ring as soon as he has touched down.

“She is just unbelievable! When the Hamdan filly came to her, she found more and she will just not give in.

“I think they broke the mould when they made her. She is just so tough.

“She broke the track record over this trip at Goodwood, so we knew that she stayed every inch of it. I told Frankie that if anything went to the lead, he should just let them go because she stays every inch of the trip. He has given her a peach of a ride.

“The ground could have been against her last time and it was a tough race too. She looked so well in the paddock today and I said to her lass Rhona that she looked fantastic.

“She was such a star last year with seven wins and she has taken up the gauntlet this year and gone from strength to strength. We are lucky to have her.”

“There are a few options for her now. She is in the Canadian International. That would means stepping down to a mile and half but she ran well at Woodbine last year when she was fourth in the E P Taylor Stakes. We will take her home and discuss the options.

“It is just great for all the team at home. Everyone just keeps their head down and works hard.”

Frankie Dettori added: “She has kept her form all year and she was a good winner today. She could have been the front-runner today but they went plenty fast enough. I didn’t want to kick three out - I thought that I would just wait a little longer than usual - and she stayed really well.

"Eastern Aria is very, very tough. You know when someone comes to you on a Mark Johnston horse they have to find plenty.

"I am looking forward to riding Rewilding in the Ladbrokes St Leger. The horse is well and we are going to give it a good go. It would be nice to win the Classic for a sixth time but it hasn’t happened yet!"

Race 5 - EBF Carrie Red Fillies’ Nursery - Winning Quotes


Trainer Richard Hannon has enjoyed a phenomenal year with his two-year-old runners but even he thought Eucharist had no chance when the daughter of Acclamation was last at the halfway point in the EBF Carrie Red Fillies’ Nursery.

Once she picked up under Richard Hughes, Eucharist came with a rare rattle in the final furlong to overhaul the Goldolphin runner Ragsah, who had looked the likely winner, by a half a length. Ragsah was subsequently demoted to third for causing interference, with Mortitia awarded the runner-up spot in the six-furlong contest.

Hannon said of the 9/2 winner: “Where has she come from? She was stone last three furlongs out. She has come from off the pace before, but never from that far back.

“She is obviously quite good this filly. Once Richard asked her, she really picked up and went through the field like a knife through butter.

“I am not sure where she will go now. There is no sales race for her, so we will probably have to look for a Listed race.”

Eucharist, who races in the colours of Hannon’s long-standing patron Jule Wood, was bought for just £18,000 at the DBS St Leger Yearling Sale in August, 2009.

Richard Hughes added: “Frankie’s filly (Ragsah) ducked and my filly nearly followed her close to the line. She travelled well and I said to Frankie that he gave his filly a great ride because I followed them the whole way.

“A horse hit the side of her at Goodwood and she managed to get going again, but everything went very smoothly today.”

Race 6 - Japan Racing Association Sceptre Stakes - Winning Quotes


It has not been the greatest of meetings for favourite backers so far this week but Dever Dream came good to record a comfortable success in the Listed Japan Racing Association Sceptre Stakes over seven furlongs.

Partnered by Eddie Ahern, the William Haggas-trained filly came with a strong run in the final furlong and at the finish the 4/1 favourite had a length and three quarters to spare over Mosqueras Romance.

Maureen Haggas, wife of William Haggas, commented: “She is bred to get seven furlongs or a mile. We trained her mother and she stayed OK and she is by Medicean, so she should get a mile but she has always showed a bit of speed and been quite keen to get on with it. But she is growing up and settling better now.

“The Ayr Gold Cup is only a week away and it is probably a bit too quick to turn her around. Now that she has won over seven furlongs, we are sort of going in that direction - we would rather keep her in that rhythm and get her settled . You can’t really rule anyhting out and we will see.

“She is in the Diadem and she might be in a seven-furlong handicap at Ascort. I think that we will just get her home and William and David (Redvers, who manages horses owned by Pearl Bloodstock) can sort out where she goes next. She has her black type now so it would be nice to win a bit of money!

“She has got a good temperament and seems to be improving with every race. You can’t ask for more than that.

“She was bred by Con Wilson, who had a lot of horses with us and Brian Meehan. He sadly died, but we were lucky to hold on to this filly.

“She just takes everything in her stride. It has been quite a long year for her but while she is still in such good form we will keep going with her.”

Race 7 - Meadowhall Fashion Handicap - Winning Quotes


Trainer Derek Shaw’s targeting of the Meadowhall Fashion Handicap paid off as the top-weight Baby Strange came with his customary late surge under Franny Norton to land the six-furlong event.

This was a second win on Town Moor this year for the six-year-old grey. He was returned at 14/1 and scored by short-head from 6/1 favourite Secret Witness.

Shaw said: “He runs this track so well. I would have liked to run him in the Portland on Saturday, but he wouldn’t have got in so I planned this race for him instead.

“He would have been unlucky if he hadn’t got up today but he has to come from off the pace like that and Franny has given him a super ride.

“He is at Ayr next week. I doubt he will get in the Gold Cup, but he could be a possible for the Silver Cup.

“He has been very consistent all year. The ground was just a bit too soft for him at Hamilton and Ayr but he got away with it today. He just wants proper, decent good ground.”



The stewards looked into interference two and a half furlongs out in race two, the DFS Handicap.

They found that the third Spanish Duke, ridden by Eddie Ahern, had interfered with the Richard Hughes-partnered Sweet Lightning who came second.

Ahern was judged guilty of careless riding by manoeuvring to his right and suspended him for one day - Thursday, September 23.


Frankie Dettori was banned for three days for careless riding by the Doncaster stewards.

They decided that Ragsah, who finished second, had interfered with Bakoura (fifth)and Mortitia who finished third by going right shortly before the line in the fifth race, the EBF Carrie Red Fillies’ Nursery.

They considered that the interference was caused by careless riding in that Dettori failed to take sufficient steps to avoid causing interference.

Ragsah went sharply right despite Dettori having his whip in his right hand.

As the interference had improved Ragsah’s placing in relation to Mortitia, they placed Mortitia second and Ragsah third. The stewards did not consider the interference had improved Ragsah’s placing in relation to Bakoura.

Dettori was suspended for three days -, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, September 23, 24 & 26.


Richard Hills has been suspended for two days by the stewards after his ride on Rumoush, second in the fourth race, the DFS Park Hill Stakes.

They decided that he had interfered with Shimmering Surf 11 furlongs out by going left when insufficiently clear. His ban is on Thursday and Friday, September 23 & 24.


Jamie Spencer is not feeling well and has stood himself down from two rides at Doncaster today.

Ryan Moore replaces him on both horses, Nasharra in the third race, the Weatherbys Insurance £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes, and La Zamora in the seventh race, the Meadowhall Fashion Handicap.

Following a dry night, the going has changed to:

(From Good, Good to Soft in places)

GoingStick readings taken at 7.45am today:

Round Course 7.9
Stands’ Side 8.1
Centre 8.4
Far Side 8.5

The round course has been railed out by four yards from Rose Hill to the straight, increasing distances by 12 yards in races over 1m 2f, 1m 4f and 1m 6f. This will be removed this evening to provide fresh ground for racing on Friday and Saturday.

David Williams, Doncaster’s Clerk of the Course, reported this morning: “The going is now good all over. It is probably a bit easier on the round course and a bit quicker in the straight. There was a heavy dew overnight which is always handy in helping to keep the ground in good shape.
