Doncaster Races tips for Friday

Nezwaah lost little in defeat on her latest appearance at Newbury and can get back on the winning trail in the Betfred TV/EBF Stallions Hoppings Stakes at Newcastle.

Roger Varian’s filly made a good impression when landing prohibitive odds on her racecourse debut at Chelmsford shortly after the turn of the year and she made a mockery of an opening mark of 73 when bolting up on at Wolverhampton next time out.

She was stepped up in distance and class for her turf bow in mid-May and proved she is up to Listed level with a fine performance to finish third.

The form looks pretty solid, with both the winner We Are Ninety and the fourth Queen’s Trust going on to run with credit in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Nezwaah has enjoyed a short break since and having already proved herself on Tapeta, she looks a sound betting proposition in the main event of the evening at Gosforth Park.

Eisha Flower can confirm the abundant promise of her debut by claiming top honours in the Betfred “Bet On The Euros” Maiden Stakes.

Richard Fahey’s inmate may have let down favourite backers at Ripon last week, but she looked like a winner waiting to happen in chasing home the more experienced Tanaasub.

Eisha Flower will almost certainly improve from that initial outing and should hit the bullseye at the second time of asking.

Evening racing also comes from Newmarket, where the William Haggas-trained Sainted rates the best bet.

The daughter of Dutch Art sluiced through the Doncaster mud to make a successful start to her career last November, beating Udontdodou into second, a gelding who now has a rating of 89 having won back-to-back races this spring.
