Oisin Murphy gave Newsboy a 100-30 winning Nap on Tuesday. Our top tipster is going for gold at Wolverhampton this evening and Doncaster’s St Leger meeting begins
WREN’S BREATH can give Grand National-winning trainer Henry de Bromhead a noteworthy success on day one of Doncaster’s St Leger festival.
Better known for his heroics with National Hunt horses, the Irishman will expect a big run from the Elzaam filly in the Group 3 Japan Racing Association Sceptre Fillies’ Stakes (3.25).
Being blind in one eye has not stopped Wren’s Breath, who came from way back to win in Listed company at Naas most recently.
Jockey Gary Carroll took a little while to pull her up after her power-packed performance and reported the key was giving her space to gallop to the line.
A track like Doncaster should be ideal for the three-year-old, as she bids to follow stablemate Lismore’s exploits at the same level last May.
Hollie Doyle has her first ride for the yard and if her mount can put in another strong effort, she should be right there at the finish.
Barry Geraghty is expected to make a successful one-off return to the saddle in the Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes (2.50).
Competing against four-time champion jockey Richard Johnson and ten other former members of the weighing room, Geraghty teams up with MUMTAAZ.
The 70-rated gelding has hit the frame on his last three outings and is weighted for a big performance, just 1lb above his last winning mark.
ARECIBO has excelled this season and the Listed Cazoo Scarbrough Stakes (4.00) looks an ideal target.
Robert Cowell has worked his magic with the six-year-old, placed in the Group 1 King’s Stand earlier this season.
Formerly a decent level handicapper, he has an excellent chance to male the most of a drop in class with Jamie Spencer taking the reins.
