Timeform’s Tony McFadden highlights a NAP, Next Best and Each Way selection at Doncaster on Thursday.
“…clearly well handicapped able to run off the same mark here.”
Scarpia had things his own way when successful at Plumpton last week as he was given a well-judged front-running ride in a race that developed into a test of speed, but he still deserves credit for how quickly he settled matters on the turn for home. He ultimately scored by 11 lengths after being eased on the run-in and is clearly well handicapped able to run off the same mark here. Scarpia was suited by the sound surface at Plumpton so the going at Doncaster, which is good, good to soft in places, is in his favour.
Road Warrior has been operating at the top of his game and can be relied upon to give another good account. He has been a model of consistency of late and backed up a win at Sedgefield on Boxing Day with two excellent runner-up efforts over the same course and distance. He is unlikely to face much pressure for the lead here and this tough, in-form competitor should be difficult to pass under 10lb claimer Peter Coleman, who has a good record on the horse.
Hasty Parisian showed ability in bumpers, hitting the frame on both outings, and he made an encouraging start over hurdles at Warwick last month, finishing runner-up behind a talented type. Hasty Parisian was no match for Saint Segal, who had finished runner-up in a Grade 1 on his previous start, but it was still a promising performance and he is entitled to improve for the experience. This more galloping track will also suit a horse who gives the impression that he will stay further, while the continued good form of Milton Harris is another positive.
