Doncaster Racing Tips: Take a Pledge with Allegiance

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view on Friday's card at Doncaster

"...he is expected to follow up after an 8 lb rise in the weights..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Doncaster on Friday.

NAP

Doncaster - 15:20 - Back Pledgeofallegiance

Pledgeofallegiance was backed as though defeat was out of the question on his handicap debut over a mile and a half at Lingfield two starts back, but he was unable to land the odds, not suited by a steady pace at the trip and having no answer for the speedier winner in the closing stages.

He showed much improved form upped further in trip and fitted with first-time cheekpieces when opening his account at Redcar last month, however, making all of the running and having a bit in hand at the line. This even longer trip will play to his strengths and he is expected to follow up after an 8 lb rise in the weights.

NEXT BEST

Doncaster - 17:05 - Back Rwenearlytheredad

Rwenearlytheredad justified good support at the second time of asking in a handicap to open his account at Beverley on Tuesday, switched out for a run entering the final furlong and having a fair bit in hand at the line despite drifting to his left.

He still appeared to be learning on the job that day and, given he escapes a penalty for that success, he makes plenty of appeal from a handicapping perspective in his follow-up bid.
