Day 3 at Donny !

Well we have a good run of results the last few days, what with Dream Ahead winning at the weekend, Haajes winning yesterday at 9/1 and Internationaldebut following up his last win at 7/1 today, (advised ew at 14's on Wednesday evening) we have had a good run.
Tomorrow there is a decent Class 2 Handicap over 6 1/2 furlongs and Kanaf who has run some good races in defeat has a chance to get back on the winners podium. Richard Hills has seemed to find all the wrong places to be on this horse lately and his runs in the Stewards Cup when 5th of 27 and at York when 5th again can go down as being unlucky as he should have finished closer than he did in both. He is up another 3lb but his run in the Stewards Cup is worth that alone and it wont have any effect on his performance here. He is entered in the Ayr Gold Cup and if he does win this you can expect to his price of 14/1 for that to come down into single figures.
The other one of interest for me would be Fathsta who keeps running well in these big sprints and he gets the assistance of Jamie Spencer. He was only beaten 2 3/4 lengths by Internationaldebut over 6f last Sunday when finishing well from off the pace and that winner has won again today by 2 1/2 lengths off a 6lb higher mark. Fathsta won a competitive sprint at York last October off a mark of 94 by 3 1/4 lengths on Soft and he runs in this off 91. He was 6th behind Deacon Blues in the Wokingham off a mark of 98, 3rd to Brae Hill off 94 in the Bunbury Cup and 4th to Hoof It again on 94 in the Sky Bet Dash at York so his chance cant be far away on 91. He was unlucky in the Stewards Cup and the Great St Wilfrid so they can be forgiven. He has to be held up so the booking of Spencer ticks that box and and he's drawn in the middle of the field. so the only downside would be that it isnt soft ground.
So there you have it they are my two against the field at 5/1 and 9/1 respectively.
