Star Ratings Explained Each horse has been given a star rating, these are defined below: HHHHH Selected to win the race. HHHHI Good chance of being placed. HHHII By no means out of the reckoning but at least one or two hold stronger claims HHIII Unlikely to win but not totally without hope. HIIII Can be given little or no chance.

OFFICIAL BHA RATINGS EXPLAINED The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part in a sufficient number of races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). The ratings published in the racecard for handicap races are the ratings that were used to calculate the weight to be carried by each horse, whilst in non-handicaps races the rating shown is that of each runner at the time that the entries for the race were confirmed. Any subsequently published change to a rating, either up or down, is shown in brackets following the rating.

FIRST RACE 1.10 ONE MILE ABOUT FOUR FURLONGS (11F ABT 197YDS) FOR THREE YRS OLD AND UPWARDS

THE THINK SMART AT VERTEM HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 2) Total race value £19000 Owners Prize Money. 1st £9622, 2nd £3188, 3rd £1594, 4th £796. (Penalty Value £12291.10) SS

RACE STATS LEADING COURSE TRAINER (15-20): Sir M Stoute (26 wins from 83 runners, 31%) runs LAAFY TRAINER-IN-FORM (LAST 14 DAYS): M Johnston (10 wins from 87 runners, 11%) runs TULIP FIELDS WEIGHTWATCHER: EDDYSTONE ROCK won off a handicap mark of 95, his rating is now down 8lb to 87. LONGEST TRAVELLER: EDDYSTONE ROCK trained by J Best, Sittingbourne, 204 miles. RACE SUMMARY LAAFY wasn’t at his best in listed company last time, but he looked better than ever when scoring at Ascot previously and is appealing back in a handicap off a feasible mark. Next on the list is Iconic Choice, who put in good late work when fourth at York a fortnight ago and this step up in trip looks a good move. Fishable and Johnny Drama also enter calculations. 1-2-3: 1.LAAFY (USA) 2.ICONIC CHOICE 3.FISHABLE KEY colours

RACE SUMMARY Preference is for JUST FRANK, who was well on top at the finish when landing a Newmarket sales race 3 weeks ago and he should have more to offer. Zamaani and Lipizzaner both command plenty of respect but, with the form of his Haydock debut success working out very well indeed, Helmont is second choice. 1-2-3: 1.JUST FRANK 2.HELMONT 3.ZAMAANI (IRE) KEY colours

Just as he did in 2019, Wrenthorpe has again peaked in the month of October and he is greatly respected, while Orvar will be a threat if on-song and Mighty Spirit also enters calculations. 1-2-3: 1.VENTUROUS (IRE) 2.WRENTHORPE 3.ORVAR (IRE) KEY colours

HORSE WELFARE COMES FIRST AT DONCASTER At every race meeting at Doncaster our top priority is the safety and welfare of both horse and rider. We have a dedicated team of highly qualified vets and doctors following the action at all times and a horse ambulance in attendance at every meeting. Use of Screens It is our policy to erect green screens around any horse requiring veterinary attention. This does NOT reflect the severity of any injury, but does help to provide a calm environment, in which the vet is better able to treat the horse. Please do not assume the worst if you see screens erected around a fallen horse!

FOURTH RACE 2.55 ONE MILE, STRAIGHT COURSE (8F) FOR TWO YRS OLD COLTS AND FILLIES

RACE STATS LEADING COURSE TRAINER (15-20): R Varian (40 wins from 165 runners, 24%) runs BARADAR TRAINER-IN-FORM (LAST 14 DAYS): A P O’Brien (9 wins from 65 runners, 14%) runs WEMBLEY FANCY THAT: A P O’Brien won this race in 2011, 2012, 2017 and 2018. The stable runs WEMBLEY today. LONGEST TRAVELLERS: WEMBLEY trained by A P O’Brien, MAC SWINEY trained by J S Bolger & STATE OF REST trained by J P O’Brien, all trained in Ireland. RACE SUMMARY It looks significant that Aidan O’Brien relies solely on WEMBLEY, who was one of seven Ballydoyle representatives left in at the five-day confirmation stage. The Galileo colt improved when going close in the Dewhurst and can provide his trainer with a record-equalling tenth victory in this race. One Ruler is very promising and is feared most ahead of Megallan. 1-2-3: 1.WEMBLEY (IRE) 2.ONE RULER (IRE) 3.MEGALLAN KEY colours

FIFTH RACE 3.30 ABOUT SEVEN FURLONGS (7F ABT 6YDS) FOR TWO YRS OLD

THE SCOTT DOBSON MEMORIAL NURSERY HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 3) Total race value £10000 x Owners Prize Money. 1st £5064, 2nd £1678, 3rd £839, 4th £419. (Penalty Value £6469) Weights raised 3lb and paragraphs 27 to 31 of the Weights and Handicapping Code complied with where applicable. SS

RACE STATS LEADING COURSE TRAINER (15-20): R Fahey (30 wins from 407 runners, 7%) runs OUTRUN THE STORM TRAINER-IN-FORM (LAST 14 DAYS): R Fahey (10 wins from 84 runners, 12%) runs OUTRUN THE STORM FANCY THAT: R Fahey won this race in 2013 and 2014. The stable runs OUTRUN THE STORM today. LONGEST TRAVELLER: SIR MAXI trained by R Beckett, Kimpton Down, 212 miles. RACE SUMMARY CONSERVATOIRE swept past her rivals in taking fashion when landing a Goodwood nursery last time and, with further improvement likely, she is taken to defy a 7lb rise in the weights. Clear next best is the hat-trick seeking Sir Maxi, who also remains with potential, and Jumby is also shortlisted. 1-2-3: 1.CONSERVATOIRE 2.SIR MAXI 3.JUMBY (IRE) KEY colours

SIXTH RACE 4.05 ABOUT SEVEN FURLONGS (7F ABT 6YDS) FOR THREE YRS OLD AND UPWARDS

THE VERTEM A FRESH APPROACH HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 3) Total race value £11500 Owners Prize Money. 1st £5824, 2nd £1930, 3rd £965, 4th £482. (Penalty Value £7439.35) SS

RACE STATS LEADING COURSE TRAINER (15-20): R Varian (40 wins from 165 runners, 24%) runs MUSICALITY TRAINER-IN-FORM (LAST 14 DAYS): R Fahey (10 wins from 84 runners, 12%) runs NATIONAL LEAGUE AND ZAP WEIGHTWATCHER: ZAP won off a handicap mark of 95, his rating is now down 15lb to 80. LONGEST TRAVELLER: TOMFRE trained by R Beckett, Kimpton Down, 212 miles. RACE SUMMARY A deserved first success of 2020 could be on the cards for BREANSKI, who has done little wrong this season and Ray Dawson’s handy 5lb claim will certainly help. Fortamour has also held his form well this year and is greatly respected on the back of his Ascot success. Tomfre returned to form at Leicester recently and needs considering too, along with Musicality and Zap. 1-2-3: 1.BREANSKI 2.FORTAMOUR (IRE) 3.TOMFRE KEY colours

LONGEST TRAVELLER: GLASVEGAS trained by K Dalgleish, Carluke, 231 miles. RACE SUMMARY The one who appeals most is the unexposed IT HAD TO BE YOU, who made a very encouraging debut for this yard when going close at Musselburgh. That was his first run for 11 months and improvement is anticipated, with this drop in trip unlikely to pose a problem. Ice Lord returned to form when third at Salisbury last time and is feared, along with Zip and the hat-trick seeking Erich Bloch. 1-2-3: 1.IT HAD TO BE YOU 2.ICE LORD (IRE) 3.ZIP KEY colours
