Jim Crowley: “The Attorney must have a very good chance”

| 10.08.2022

Coral ambassador Jim Crowley has four rides at Doncaster on Saturday

Doncaster 2.06 – Pride Of The Pack

It’s a rather low-key weekend ahead of a massive week at York, a week that for all the Shadwell team promises to be something special as we step Baaeed up in trip for the first time.

His prep has gone smoothly and it goes without saying I’m really excited about the Juddmonte International, of which more of next week.

The first of four rides at Doncaster is Pride Of The Pack, trained by my old boss Ralph Beckett for the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

She’s had just the one run, a decent third at Newmarket over seven furlongs, so she’s stepping up to a mile here which should suit this daughter of Roaring Lion.

She should show plenty of improvement for that debut run and looks to have a decent chance.

Doncaster 2.41 – Object

Object won a couple of times as a 2-y-o but hasn’t got his head in front in two starts so far this season, although he did finish third at Lingfield from a poor draw on his last start.

He’s running over five furlongs for the first time here and he showed plenty of early speed last time so if he can handle the minimum trip, he could have a good chance.

Doncaster 3.48 – The Attorney

I haven’t ridden The Attorney before but he looks a nice ride to have picked up.

He ran very well to finish second in a competitive handicap at Glorious Goodwood recently and he was a bit unlucky that day too, just getting short of room at a crucial stage, when the winner got first run on him.

He runs off the same mark here and while Air To Air looks the main rival, my fellow must have a very good chance.

Doncaster 4.23 – Captain Vallo

Another first time ride for me to end the day, Captain Vallo hasn’t won yet this season but has been knocking on the door.

He’s back up to seven furlongs here, having stayed on well at the track over six last time, and given how consistent he is he would have an each-way chance here.
