Victor Value – 09/01/2017
4:05 - Serenade the Stars makes his handicap debut on what looks a very ordinary three year old handicap. Not shown much in his three starts in maiden company but can do better now handicapping and a mark of 60 could be workable. Slight concern that the horse is on his third sort of headgear as a visor replaces the blinkers worn last time. I think we will see a better performance from the James Tate with inform jockey Martin Harley booked for the ride.

3:10 - Towering - The selection hails from the yard of trainer Nicky Henderson whose record at Doncaster is 23 wins from 57 runners 40% +29.22 A/E 1.2 37 places 65%with all his runners here since 2014. This novice handicap chase could be slightly more competitive than Class 4 suggests . In a recent racing Post Stable Tour the trainer described the 8 year old as having a "bright future as he's always been a good jumper....Needs decent ground". Makes his debut over fences and if the ground stays good he would be my selection in that race.
