Timeform pick out three bets from Doncaster on Saturday.

"He will find this opposition more to his liking and can resume winning ways."

Markov - 13:05 Doncaster

Markov immediately bettered his hurdles form when landing a novices' handicap chase at Fontwell last month with a bit in hand. He rates a likely improver, particularly as his jumping improves, and shades the vote to follow up. Poker School and Cooking Fat are generally consistent and feared most.

Flying Tiger - 13:40 Doncaster

Fred Winter winner Flying Tiger has acquitted himself really well in good company this term, most recently when third in Fighting Fifth earlier this month. He will find this opposition more to his liking and can resume winning ways. Irish Roe and Mohaayed may be the principal dangers.

Virgilio - 15:20 Doncaster

Virgilio was disappointing on his return at Aintree last month, but will appreciate the return to this longer trip and gets the nod in a tricky-looking contest. Kilcrea Vale looks on a fair mark and rates the main danger with Sego Success next best.
