Doncaster Speed Ratings Preview – 24 April 2015


Doncaster Racecourse has seven races scheduled for today (Friday 24 April). So long as the sunny weather holds up, the going is expected to be good to firm. Today’s daily speed figures come via the Racing Post.

The 13:20 Handicap is a Class 5 race that will feature 14 runners. From the field, it is Janaab’s speed rating of 78 that is highest. Birdman has been identified as the only close speed contender, with a 76 rating.

Fewer runners will participate in the 13:50 Handicap, but the competition should be intense. Aabir has been marked out with a lofty 81 rating.

However, there are three horses from the six runners that have ratings in the 70s. Those horses are King Bolette (78), Subcontinent (74), and Atab (73). From that trio, it is notable that William Twiston-Davies will ride Atab. His brother is the talented Sam Twiston-Davies.
