Russian Ruler (14.15 Doncaster)

On Call (14.40 Doncaster)

Hurricane Le Dun (15.50 Doncaster)

13.05 Doncaster - City Chief

The first of a potential Nicky Henderson Doncaster hat-trick comes bearing the yellow and black checked silks of Al Boum Photo.

Joe and Marie Donnelly own both the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner and Henderson's five-year old who is likely to go off worthy favourite at Donny in the Betting Better With Sky Bet Maiden Hurdle.

A winner of a three mile maiden on heavy going at Tralee, City Chief was sent to England and finished second at Ascot in a maiden hurdle just shy of Christmas.

Entitled to have come on for that run, The Soldier Of Fortune gelding will be expected to take this one on the way to better races.

14.15 Doncaster- Russian Ruler

Taking to the course in the imposing black silks of the Unique Financial Racing Partnership, Russian Ruler can loom on the rest like a nuclear sub in the Betting Better With Sky Bet Novices' Hurdle.

Nicky Henderson's five-year-old was a straightforward winner of his opening bumper, prevailing by two lengths at Warwick in May.

Likely to put on strength and muscle over the summer, Russian Ruler should put in an imposing showing at Doncaster.

Nico De Boinville gets the leg up with this one saying "Moscow" to the rest.

15.50 Doncaster - Hurricane Le Dun

A nice competitive bumper in the lucky last at Doncaster can cap a Tuesday Henderson hat-trick with Hurricane Le Dun in the Sky Bet Open NH Flat Race.

Sired by the Hong Kong Vase winning Doctor Dino, whose offspring include the likes of Sceau Royal, this Hurricane is ridden by the talented Nico De Boinville.

Seven Barrows are really wheeling them out at the moment and this promising gelding can go in at the first time of asking.
