Placepot Pointers: One Master is all you need in the fourth leg at Doncaster

Fri 11 Sep 2020

By The Tote Team

The final Classic of the season is upon us and we look to negotiate the six legs at Doncaster. In 2019, the Placepot paid £684 to a £1 stake, so there could be a big dividend on the cards.

How's the Going?

The ground is Good, Good To Firm in places at Doncaster and the weather is forecasted to be dry and cloudy, so there will be no excuses on the day.

The Big Trend

Joseph O’Brien is not a man who makes trips over the Irish Sea just for the fun of it and prior to Friday boasted a 36% strike rate with his runners on the British Flat this year.

In Leg 2 (1:50) STATE OF REST has to be worth a second look. This is a highly competitive race with some exciting prospects lining up, but this is a horse that is improving and could well sneak into the frame at a big price.

Placepot Banker

ONE MASTER (3:00, Leg 4) is a genuine Group 1 mare on her day and she looks set for a big run here. Last seen finishing second in the City Of York Stakes, Tom Marquand had to wait for a gap 2f out and the ship had already sailed at that point.

Wichita gets a handy allowance and 7f could turn out to be his best distance, while Limato has been a fantastic servant to Henry Candy, but if the best One Master turns up, she’s the one they’ve all got to beat.

Outsider to Consider

In recent years, the St Leger (3:35, Leg 5) has generally gone to one near the top of the market, but this looks a deep renewal and there are certainly a couple in here who have caught our eye.

Andrew Slattery has time and time again been bullish about the qualities that SUNCHART possesses. It hasn’t quite worked out for him, but a second in a Listed contest at Leopardstown last time suggested he might start fulfilling that promise sooner rather than later. The winner that day, Pista, gave the form a boost winning here earlier in the week and given that Dawn Patrol was behind them that day and less than half the price, he makes it into our perm.

It would be some training performance for TYSON FURY to win on only his second start, but there was enough to like about his debut win at the course to stick him in here. Both the second and third in that race have come out and won since and he looks another who could outrun his odds.

Torpedo Leg

The opening race of the day could be the one to come unstuck in – a 12-runner Class 2 Handicap.

Ed Walker’s MATTHEW FLINDERS has an attractive profile and is a horse on the up, but it’s definitely having two or three in this tricky contest.

AWEEDRAM is interesting on his first outing for Kevin Frost and with Ray Dawson on board, who had a winner earlier in the week, claiming 5lb, it would be no surprise to see him too far away.
