Jim Crowley: “I can see Mahrajaan running a really big race”

| 08.09.2022

Coral ambassador Jim Crowley previews his four rides at Doncaster on Friday on day three of the St Leger Festival

Doncaster 1.25 – Mahrajaan

I start the day with a strong ride on Mahrajaan in the Coral Mallard. He’s having his second start over a mile and six furlongs, and comes here off the back of a very good third at York last time.

We’ve taken the sheepskin cheekpieces off him here, and he felt like he was crying out for this step up in trip. We’re drawn well in three, the long, galloping straight should suit, and I can see him running a really big race.

Doncaster 3.10 – Reshoun

Reshoun takes his chance in the Coral Doncaster Cup, having been a non-runner at Haydock last weekend due to the fast ground.

On ratings he is going to have it all to do against the likes of Trueshan and Coltrane, but he’s tough, genuine, stays really well, and never runs a bad race. I’m sure he’ll be his usual game self and is a pleasure to ride, but on paper he has plenty to find.

Doncaster 3.45 – Tanmawwy

Tanmawwy (pictured below) runs here rather than in Saturday’s Coral Portland, and comes here off the back of a Ffos Las win for me last month. He likes a bit of cut in the ground so this should be ideal for him, and he’s a tough, genuine sort so hopefully the seven-pound rise won’t be too much of a hindrance on a track that will suit.

Doncaster 4.55 – Mutaany

My final ride of the day is Mutaany in the Nursery.  He’s had the three runs, and we just ran into one at Wolverhampton last time. The ground would be a slight concern as he disappointed first time up on good to soft, but he’s in good form at home and is a nice horse with a future.
