Doncaster Mile 2020 Best Bet - Mister Sea Wolf @ $16.00

This honest Chris Waller-trained veteran has been building towards this Doncaster Mile tilt in good fashion.

The fresh effort for third in the Canterbury Stakes was a nice blowout for the autumn where whilst he was safely held. he was the only runner making impression from off the speed and was clearing out from the rest.

A galloper that does have a habit of producing with a space between attempts, his work late and particularly after the line in a March 27 trial here was strong.

Needs to buck a poor Randwick record which is the query but at the odds available, Mister Sea Wolf can be supported each way as the best bet in a competitive 2020 Doncaster Mile.


Doncaster Mile 2020 Next Best Bet - Melody Belle - $8.00

With the weight, history is somewhat against this mare in the Doncaster, however as the clear class animal in what isn't a vintage edition of this race, she has to go in.

As a winner of ten group one's versus this field, she clearly deserves the impost and will need to bring her champion qualities with More Joyous (57.5kg) and Sunline (58kg) the last mares to carry more weight to take this feature.

The prospect of potentially of at minimum a Soft 7 surface is the least of her worries and whilst she has drawn out, they could be looking to fan wider at Randwick come Race 9 on the card.

This New Zealand star is at $8.00 in the early markets and with that, is at a fair enough price versus the risk associated with her in the 2020 Doncaster Mile.
