It’s Day 1 of the St Leger Meeting at Doncaster and Sam Boswell has picked out his top tip for the day’s racing.
Cloak Of Spirits
Doncaster’s St Leger meeting gets under way today. Always a decent week of racing and I’m particularly interested in the Sceptre Fillies Stakes. It’s a Group 3 and a quality field, which is headed by Jubiloso of Sir Michael Stoute, a horse I have plenty of respect for. But I want to look elsewhere and I’m going to side with the consistent Cloak Of Spirits (15:15).
The 3-year-old by Invincible Spirit has had a good season without winning. On her four starts so far, she’s run well on 3 occasions at Newmarket, when finishing 2nd to the Oaks winner Love, who has gone on to be quiet the horse before running well at Epsom and putting in a good show when coming third at Deauville last time out in France. I think she looks a solid each way bet at 11/2. It would be lovely to see Richard Hannon’s filly get a well-deserved win from a campaign that’s seen her hit the crossbar a few times behind some good horses in front.
