2021 Park Hill Stakes Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Thursday, 09 September 2021

We’re counting down to the 2019 St Leger meeting, with three days of first-class Flat horse racing action at Doncaster which culminates in the final Classic of the season.

However, the St Leger isn’t the only attractive race throughout the three days and Thursday’s card is peppered with intriguing encounters. There are currently eleven runners entered in the Park Hill Stakes on Thursday 12 September.

This is a race that is run over one mile, six-and-a-half furlongs, with fillies and mares battling it out in this Group 2 encounter and the horse likely to go off favourite is Enbihaar. She’s likely to take all the beating based on previous races.

The John Gosden-trained charge is having a wonderful season and she’s won three of her previous four races this campaign, with the four-year-old getting off the mark when winning a Listed Fillies’ Stakes at Goodwood in early May.

She then finished second to Dramatic Queen in a Group 3 race at York before franking the form to beat her adversary in early July. That victory in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock was particularly eye-catching, beating her American rival by a neck.

Better was to come at the Glorious Goodwood meeting when Enbihaar claimed a five-length victory in the Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes, with Jim Crowley holding the horse up in the last pair before pushing into the lead from two furlongs out.

Owner Hamdan Al Maktoum's racing manager Angus Gold was very taken with that particular performance and will want the ground at Doncaster to be as fast as possible.

He said after that race: "I was really impressed with her. I'm a real fan of this filly. She was quite hot and fizzy as a two-year-old but she has absolutely settled down now and loves her work. She stays surprising well for a Redoute's Choice, and she handles this fast ground. It was a really good performance with a penalty.

"She's got a magnificent stride on her, and she must be about 16.3hh, but she was light framed when we bought her and has just really developed. I'm delighted for Sheikh Hamdan, who kept her in training."

This impressive win means that she’s regarded as the one to beat in this Doncaster clash, with the horse currently trading at 11/8 with William Hill although there are others in the race who could offer stiff opposition.

This includes Dame Malliot who is trading as the 5/2 second favourite and this is also a horse that has experienced that winning sensation on more than one occasion during the 2019 Flat season.

Jockey Frankie Dettori will be on board hoping to continue an amazing 2019 Flat horse racing season, with the charge having finished second in her seasonal reappearance when running well on the all-weather track at Chelmsford.

However, better was to come in July when Dame Malliot won a Listed Race at the July Festival at Newmarket, claiming the spoils at odds of 11/2 and the Ed Vaughan-trained charge ran beautifully under jockey Hollie Doyle.

Dame Malliot’s next engagement took her to France and a first ride under Dettori, with the fillie obliging at odds of 7/5 favourite to claim victory in the Group 2 Darley Prix de Pomone.

It was a narrow short head victory over Japanese horse Love So Deep, although the layers believe that she could be in the frame for Thursday’s race at Doncaster which should be an intriguing tussle.

There is one other horse trading at single figure odds, with Manuela De Vega trading at around odds of 7/1 and Ralph Beckett will send out the horse for the sixth time this Flat season.

The three-year-old is yet to experience a victory during her five runs, although she has mainly been keeping esteemed company and ran well twice at Goodwood during the month of August.

Indeed, the horse finished second to Enbihaar in the Lillie Langtry Stakes and now has five lengths to find on the race favourite, with the horse then finishing third in the Ladbrokes March Stakes when finishing behind Sir Ron Priestly.
