Naadirr looks booked for a big summer after running out a very impressive winner of the Betway Cammidge Trophy at Doncaster.
Having signed off last season with a Listed win at York, the 5-1 chance was giving weight to all bar one of his rivals.
Sole Power landed a famous victory when he took the Al Quoz Sprint at the fifth attempt with his customary late surge in the five-furlong Group One contest at Meydan.
Richard Hughes typically delayed his challenge on the Eddie Lynam-trained eight-year-old to collar Peniaphobia inside the dying strides.
The flat season kicks off at Doncaster today and we will look to get in amongst it this season, as last year it went over our heads a bit at times. Along with some value E/w bets in the big Doncaster races, we have a novice hurdle bet at Straford too.
Richard Fahey targets the Lincoln meeting at Doncaster and had we punted all his runners at this venue during the month of March we would have found 15 winners from 106 bets (14.2% strike-rate) for a profit of £28.50 to a £1 level stake. In handicaps only, the figures improve to 14 winners from 81 runners (17.3% strike-rate, +£46.50).
The flat season begins in earnest this Saturday with the £100,000 Lincoln Handicap providing an ideal springboard for the summer ahead. We've worked through the 22 horse field and pinpointed a likeliest winner, two dark horses and a live outsider at the bottom of our horse-by-horse rundown!
