Japan Racing Association Sceptre Stakes

DoncasterThursday 10th September, 2.30, Doncaster

The Japan Racing Association Sceptre Stakes is the second encounter coming from Doncaster tomorrow and this Group 3 should be a cracker.

There will be as many as 20 fillies and mares compete in this one and it looks to be very competitive.

There is, however, quite a warm favourite in the betting as Fadhayyil can be backed at 14/1 for Barry Hills and Paul Hanagan.

This horse seems to be ideally suited by the seven furlong trip and won really well at York last time out in a Listed race.

You got the impression there was still plenty to come from this filly on that day as she does have some rock solid form in the book.

If anything, Fadhayyil should prefer this ground compared to the sticky and quite dead surface at York last time and she has to be the right favourite, especially getting weight from some older rivals.

You then have Mistrusting at 5/1 for Charlie Appleby and William Buick.

This horse has won three from five and was second on her other two starts, so clearly has plenty of quality.

She was only a neck in front at York last time out when beating Dusky Queen, but is a horse on a real upward curve and should give a good account of herself here.

Charlie Hills has his yard in very good form at the moment and Kiyoshi runs for him with Andrea Atzeni doing the steering.

She was fifth in a Group 3 at Goodwood last time and has perhaps been a little disappointing this season but returns to this track that she enjoys.

The filly was a winner here last year in this very race and at 10/1, could prove to be a decent bet.

Majestic Queen comes over from Ireland and is an interesting runner for Godolphin.

She was sixth and only two lengths behind Muhaarar in France last time out, which was a good run and this trip looks to be ideal for the mare. At 12/1, she represents good value with James Doyle in the saddle.

The likes of Dusky Queen, Lucky Kristale, Lady Correspondent and Realtra are all being offered around the 14/1 mark and it’s then 16/1 and over about the rest of the field. There are plenty of the outsiders that do seem to have a chance if at their best.

For us, it’s worth backing two in this race and both Fadhayyil and Kiyoshi would be our selections at 4/1 and 10/1 respectively.
