We send two runners to Doncaster on Sunday where the going at the time of writing is good, good to firm in places.

First up at, in a 0-75 handicap over seven furlongs is our recent purchase Musicality, who will once again have the assistance of Joanna Mason. Musicality arrived from the Newmarket yard of Roger Varian in the spring, having achieved a BHA rating of 94 in his first season of racing as a three year old back in 2020. His form dipped as a four year old, but he still showed glimpses of what he can do, particularly in a first time visor at Newcastle when finishing a two and a half lengths fourth from a mark of 85 last September. His best form to date has been over six furlongs, and we will learn more of what there is under the bonnet from this career low mark of 73.

Countess Olivia will become eligible for her first handicap mark after competing in the near 12 furlongs maiden at, where she will once again be partnered by Andrew Elliott. As with her other two flat starts Countess Olivia appears to be taking on some very useful looking maidens, and this run will hopefully offer the answers as to what will be her best trip for her first handicap start next time.

Good luck to the connections, Champagne & Giggles, and John Sidebottom & Mrs Kate Sidebottom.

We send one to York, where the going at the time of writing is described as good, good to soft in places, and then in the evening we have two at Market Rasen, where the ground is also good, good to so
