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 (15:15)

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.
