Today's Racing Tips from Doncaster

MONTATHAM (2.45) has become a better horse for being gelded and the William Haggas-trained grey should run a stormer in the competitive Unibet Golden Mile.

He ran Dark Vision close in the Royal Hunt Cup but turned the tables, albeit narrowly, in a re-match at Sandown. Dark Vision has won since at Listed level off 109 and that form line is rock solid. Montatham scored easily on fast ground at Newmarket on his return, so underfoot conditions are probably ideal. A bigger headache is stall 15, so Jim Crowley will need his wits about him.

Prompting remains at the right end of the weights, despite two eye-catching victories at Ayr and York, and David O’Meara has booked Henry Bentley to do a fairly light weight. Prompting is due to go up another 6lb in future, so is well treated if he can find a clear passage from stall two.

There should be plenty of pace with the likes of Mark Johnston’s course specialist Vale Of Kent, runner-up 12 months ago from a very wide post position, certain to be in the vanguard. Sir Busker has been in excellent form and is just one other to consider in the 15-runner field. Some firms are paying four places each-way.

Haggas trains another fancied runner, One Master, in the Group 3 Oak Tree Stakes and she is likely to be sent off favourite after running fourth to Nazeef at Newmarket. Stall one is a plum pitch in theory but it is often more difficult in practise as the runners concertina in the straight. BREATHTAKING LOOK (1.45) races prominently and could well miss any scrimmaging. She comes into the race in fine form, going down to Queen Jo Jo in a tight finish at York 12 days ago. Breathtaking Look thumped Agincourt by three lengths at Newmarket last summer and should confirm places on 6lb worse terms.

I'm pretty sweet on HIGHWAYGREY (2.25) in the 1m 2f handicap at Pontefract. Tim Easterby's gelding produced a career best to trounce some progressive southern-trained three-year-olds over course and distance eight days ago. he was held up off a strong gallop and there should be a similar scenario with habitual front-runner Michele Strogoff likely to ensure an honest gallop. A 5lb penalty makes things a bit harder but Highwaygrey can take care of El Picador, unlucky when denied racing room at Beverley, and top weight Sudona.

    Good 1.10 Moomba 9/1 ew

    Beaten 8l by al Qaqaa last time but has a 9lb pull in the weights today and both make their handicap debut, might not beat the fav on revised terms but at the prices I’d rather have a go ew at 9/1 than a 6/4 fav, also the trainer has won this race twice in recent years so obviously targets it, worth a few shillings.

    I’m pretty sweet on cliffs of Capri and backed it ew, has some really good form and should be suited to the track, also I’m not convinced cardsharp gets a mile but being a Johnston horse and on a speed track I’ve done a rev fc just in case
