Horse racing tips for Doncaster, Lingfield and Newcastle
MAGIC OF LIGHT (2.40, nap) can make it a hat-trick of wins in Britain this season when the Jessica Harrington-trained mare heads to Huntingdon for the listed Mares’ Chase over an extended two miles and three furlongs.
The eight-year-old previously cruised to a facile 14-length victory in a listed chase over an extended two miles and seven furlongs at Newbury last month.
She was then sent to Ascot last Saturday and won a Grade Two hurdle over a similar trip to this afternoon. She is in fine fettle and has the ground to suit.
OZZIE THE OSCAR (1.55, nb) will take all the beating at Doncaster.
The Philip Hobbs-trained nine-year-old comes off a game three-and-a-half-length win ahead of Bun Doran at Cheltenham over the same two-mile trip. He has weight to carry but this admirable performer will enjoy the good ground.
IGNATIUS (1.45, treble) is attempting to break his duck on his fifth career run at Lingfield and has been gelded since a career-best third place at Kempton last time over the same trip of a mile.
The John Best-trained three-year-old can improve further. Keep It Country Tv is the likely danger, having won at the course last month, but disappointed last time when outpaced over seven furlongs at the Surrey track when a warm favourite.
