Cheveton to put up improved show ?

Sunday sees a Class 3 handicap at Doncaster over 6f and the going at the time of writing is good. The field is headed by recent winner Tajneed who is stiil feasibly handicapped on his best form, however 10-1 for a C3 is a big weight to carry to victory again. Invincible Force is probably too high in the handicap right now and although he has the assistance of Fallon, who is an interesting booking, he needs to dominate up front for you to see his best. Cheveton has not hit top form this year but he was 2nd in the Coral Sprint to Kaldoun Kingdom in October off 95 giving that rival 7lb and gets in here on 92 with William Carson taking off a further 3lb and it wouldnt be hard to imagine him being there at the business end although he has never won over 6f, however this is slight drop in class for him. Johnny Mudball is another contender and he put in a performance last time more in keeping with what has been expected of him in coming 2nd to Parisian Pyramid off 89 and only having had 6 runs is open to further improvement. Excuzes Moi and Baby Strange ara both horses that show better form when they are full of themselves pre race, so its a wait and see with them. Northern Dare would be another well handicapped horse on his best form and he ran better last time for his new stable behind Tajneed and if he did return to his Goodwood Stewards Cup Consolation race form when he came 2nd then he could go close.
All in all its another wide open sprint handicap but one that could go well at a decent price is Cheveton.
