One runner today at Doncaster.

3.15pm Minella On Line runs in the Sky Bet handicap chase over 3m.
Minella has had two runs over hurdles so far this winter, finishing third on his last start. He won twice over fences last season at this trip.

Minella is an infuriating horse, he has plenty of ability and he has tons of scope but every once in a while he will just decide to rugby tackle a fence, he never falls but he is difficult to stay on.
We have done tons of schooling with him and as you know he has had many sessions with Yogi Breisner and Laura Collet, it just appears to be a lapse in concentration.

This is a good race as you would expect for a listed chase, he has to go left handed and he has slipped back down a bit in the handicap. It’s worth a shot.

Nelly is a big strong boy who is basically good to ride at home, he can be keen and also a bit impatient about jumping off at the bottom of the gallops.

He will be ridden by Conor Shoemark.

Nelly is looked after will be led up and is ridden at home by Gracie O’Reilly.
