2021 Doncaster Mile Betting Odds at Randwick racecourse

Saturday, 10 April 2021

The Doncaster Handicap is also known as the Doncaster Mile and this is a high-profile thoroughbred horse race which is run by the Australian Turf Club. It’s a Group One encounter and horses aged three and older can enter, with the encounter being run over a distance of 1,600 metres.

The Royal Randwick Racecourse plays host to the Doncaster Mile and this has been in operation since 1866, with the race taking place on the opening day of the ATC Championships Carnival at Royal Randwick which is usually early April.

There have been some notable achievements when it comes to the Doncaster Handicap, with Super Impose having landed a victory in 1990 and 1991, with this being the only time that a horse has landed more than one Doncaster Mile victory until Pharaoh triumphed in 1994 and 1995, while Sacred Falls won in 2013 and 2014.

There have also been some notable training performances and T.J. Smith has landed a win on seven different occasions. The famous Winx landed a victory in 2016, while Happy Clapper, Brutal and Nettoyer have been other winners.

Much depends on whether Aegon lines up for the Doncaster Handicap and it has to be admitted that this talented three-year-old has multiple entries for a whole host of autumn races and it’s possible that we won’t see him compete against some of the more probable runners.

Probabeel looks like a better horse upon which to hang your hat, with the four-year-old having warmed up nicely with a couple of victories at Caulfield Racecourse in February, suggesting that the charge could be a leading contender for this encounter.

Trainer Jamie Richards saw the horse oblige in the Lamaro's Sth Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes in early February over six furlongs before the horse really rose to the fore when winning the Lamaro's Sth Melbourne Futurity Stakes which was a Group 1 encounter which took place on 20 February.

Probabeel also ran well last October despite finishing down the order in the fiendishly difficult Ladbrokes Cox Plate and has to be respected, although there are many others in the field with a live chance and that includes Colette.

Colette is a Godolphin horse trained by James Cummings and he finished a narrow second in the TAB Chipping Norton Stakes when being touched off by winner Verry Elleegant although that took place at Royal Randwick Racecourse so there’s every chance of seeing the horse back and firing this time around.
