Hawk’s Saturday Selections – Doncaster Mile Day

April 20, 2013

Sydneysiders woke up to a miserable day this morning, putting a dampener (quite literally) on Doncaster Mile day at Royal Randwick.

It is a real shame, for this year’s Doncaster Mile looked remarkably strong. While the strength is still there, many will have no chance on the heavy track.

The wet surface has forced a change in approach – my tip on Thursday, Shoot Out, hasn’t even made my top four now.

Today also features the Australian Oaks, while the support races also tend to throw up horses to watch in the future.
