2011 Doncaster Handicap – Betting Tips & Form

April 16th, 2011

The day of the long anticipated 2011 Doncaster Handicap has arrived, and here we have provided you with the best tips and form for the $2 million race at Randwick today April 16, 2011.

The 1,600 metre Doncaster Handicap has attracted a quality 18 horse starting field for today’s race, including our top tip to win; More Joyous.

More Joyous has consistently proven herself as a class above the rest, sailing to victory in 12 of her past 13 race starts.

The four-year-old mare is currently favourite for the 2011 Doncaster Mile and is paying odds of $2.60 to win the race at Luxbet.

More Joyous is due to jump from barrier eight in today’s Doncaster Handicap, which is sure to be a perfect alley considering the rain and the wet track.

For second place, we are tipping Mick Price’s Aloha who is set to jump from barrier 11 in today’s race.

Aloha finished a close fourth last start in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes behind Rangirangdoo, breaking a five-run winning streak in which she won some of the country’s best races, including the Group 1 Coolmore Classic by 2.5 lengths.

Aloha is currently paying odds of $9 to win the 2011 Doncaster Handicap at Luxbet.

Finally, we fancy the look of Ilovethiscity to finish in third placing.

Ilovethiscity, who is paying odd of $19 at Luxbet, has drawn barrier 17 for the 2011 Doncaster Handicap and will be ridden by jockey Brenton Avdulla.

Below you will find the best form guide for our 2011 Doncaster Handicap horse racing tips.

2011 Doncaster Mile Form

#1 More Joyous

  • Career: 18-14-0-1
  • 5th race this prep
  • More Joyous has won 12 of her past 13 starts and is on track to remain unbeaten throughout her entire current preparation.  She has put in two exhibition style gallops to win her last two races against quality fields and will have to be very unlucky not to win here.

#9 Aloha

  • Career: 18-8-3-3
  • 4th race this prep
  • Aloha’s winning streak came to an end in the George Ryder Stakes last start, however, she still ran an excellent race to finish fourth against the boys. She will carry 5.5kgs less here which will do her the world of good against this quality field.

#10 Ilovethiscity

  • Career: 12-4-2-1
  • 5th race this prep
  • Ilovethiscity has drawn very wide for this race in barrier 17, although he should be okay as long as he is able to find some cover. He has won two out of his three attempts at this distance and is sure to be in the finish granted he gets into a reasonable position.
