Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday. Sir Henry Cecil’s Wild Coco in the 14.55 at Doncaster. Compare odds and bet.
The DFS Park Hill Stakes is the feature on day two of the St Leger meeting from Doncaster and Wild Coco (2:55) is fancied to take the Group 2 prize for Sir Henry Cecil and Tom Queally.
She made a winning return to action in the Group 3 Lilly Langtry at Glorious Goodwood last time and the deteriorating conditions (ground appeared to be cutting up yesterday) won’t inconvenience the four-year-old.
She has twice won on good-to-soft ground and, having proven herself over this sort of trip last time, she ticks plenty of boxes. The Shirocco filly was available at 2/1 with Boylesports overnight.
At the prices, the best each-way alternative and, possibly, the main danger looks to be the Godolphin filly Kailani, who looked really good when slamming Hazel Lavery by 7 lengths in the Pretty Polly Stakes on soft ground back in May.
The daughter of Monsun has since finished seventh in both the Oaks and the Ribblesdale, but a return to form would make her a serious player here. She was trading at 10/1 with Ladbrokes last night.
