Timeform take you through the card at Doncaster on Thursday.


17:45 - The New Pharoah arrives here in good form but has been put up 3 lb in the weights for finishing second on his last start and isn't the most straightforward overall, so could be a favourite worth taking on for Placepot purposes. BUONARROTI (7) is lurking on a good mark (6 lb below the one he last defied) and should appreciate the return to soft ground, so looks worth including, along with the unexposed WARRIOR PRINCE (6), who is bred to come into his own over this sort of trip.

18:15 - WAFEER (7) is an attractive sort with plenty of physical scope who ran well on debut at Haydock last month (fifth). The third has already boosted the form by winning next time out, and Wafeer looks certain to do better with that outing under his belt, so looks a solid option here.

18:45 - Wannabe Friends did too much too soon at Salisbury last time and may run well back in maiden company, but his overall strike-rate tempers enthusiasm and the newcomer GORHAM'S CAVE (6) - who represents a yard who have won two of the last three runnings of this race - makes some appeal, as does RAAWY (7), who finished second at Newamrket on debut and should come on for that.

19:20 - A competitive three-year-old sprint. Kaeso has been thriving and landed a hat-trick last time at Ripon, but is up in the weights and in a hotter race than he has been contesting recently. He may well improve again given his profile, but MARSEILLE (5) narrowly makes more appeal. She was hampered twice when attempting to run down the front-running Justanotherbottle here earlier this month and looks on a favourable mark. It's hard to ignore the strength of Summerghand's Chelmsford win, and he is a big danger to all if bouncing back from a below-par run last time.

19:50 - Three-year-old SAVANNAH STEW (4) goes well on softer ground and produced a career-best in these conditions at Carlisle on her penultimate start. She found listed company too hot last time and will appreciate this drop back to handicap company, so looks a solid option.

20:20 - MUATADEL (5) won an apprentice handicap here last week from 2 lb higher in the weights and this could prove a good bit of placement from Roger Fell. WILLSY (10) bounced back to form from a reduced mark at Carlisle earlier this month on his first try at sprinting for a while and, a winner on testing ground last season, he should also run well.

20:55 - An interesting race with the likes of Entangling, Circulation and Fleetfoot Jack all having something to recommend them on. The former is in shrewd hands and may just shade the vote on his handicap/turf debut, but neither of the others can be ruled out with much confidence.

Placepot permutation:

17:45 - 6, 7
18:15 - 7
18:45 - 6, 7
19:20 - 5
19:50 - 4
20:20 - 5, 10
