Doncaster each-way tip: Ottoman Force quietly fancied to hit ground running on season debut

There’s a few with a realistic chance of winning the last race on Doncaster’s evening card, so our friends at Tipstrr have helped narrow the field down by sharing their most widely-tipped selection,

20:20 Doncaster: At The Races App Market Movers Handicap (6 furlongs)

Last-time-out winner Mr Irrelevant looks likely to be sent off as the short-priced favourite, having landed an eight-runner contest at Ripon just five days ago, and although hiked six pounds for his troubles, that penalty is all but negated by Brandon Wilkie’s useful five-pound claim.

Grant Tuer’s three-year-old looks to be the one to beat here, although interestingly Declan Carroll’s Woodleigh is effectively 11 pounds better off against the favourite than when finishing third of seven at Ripon 14 days ago, less than three lengths behind Mr Irrelevant, who was runner-up that day.

Of those carrying each-way hopes, young filly Fistral Beach could be interesting on both her season and stable debut for new trainer John Mackie, returning to action nine months after rounding off last season with a promising second of 10 in heavy conditions over this course and distance.

The final word from the Tipstrr collective, however, is that Darryll Holland’s Ottoman Force has the best credentials to punch above his weight and force his way into the reckoning at a tasty price.

Suggested best bet: Ottoman Force in the 20:20 at Doncaster

This lightly-raced maiden came closest to breaking his duck on his penultimate outing last season, when finishing a 1½-length runner-up of 11 starters in heavy going at Beverley.

That run was over the minimum five-furlong trip, but the way he kept on gamely to the line suggested he has enough in the locker to cope with the additional furlong here.

He was less effective on a subsequent effort on Kempton’s synthetic track, but could be ready to hit the ground running here as he returns from a six-month break (during which he was gelded) to make both his season and handicap debut in first-time cheekpieces.

All those factors should combine to bring out an improved performance, while the booking of Tom Marquand (his fifth different jockey in five rides) looks to be a significant move to maximise his chances here.
