We have two runners at Doncaster on Friday where the going is currently described as good, good to soft in places.

Both of our representatives will go to post for the, which is a 0-105 handicap hurdle over two miles and three furlongs, with a maximum size field of 19 declared.

Buto was a comfortable winner of a handicap hurdle back in May over their extended two miles and seven furlongs, he then backed that up when finishing second and third at the same track in June. This will be his first start back in 119 days, as he makes his return, with Emma Smith-Chaston taking over from the currently injured Josh Thompson.

Our other runner in the race is Halpha Soleil who returns from a 221 day break, having last been seen when finishing sixth under Connor O'Farrell at Hexham in a handicap hurdle, for which he can now race from a 2lb lower mark. With Connor O'Farrell still recovering from injury, his place in the saddle will be taken by Richie McLernon.

Good luck to the connections, North Star Racing, and T I S Partnership.

Buto & Ellie.
