Doncaster looks the right port of call for the Paul Nicholls-trained San Benedeto on Saturday afternoon, with the Ditcheat handler looking to warm up for Cheltenham with a winner in the valuable two mile Betbright Handicap Chase (2.25pm).
San Benedeto runs here instead of an alternative entry in the feature Greatwood Gold Cup at Newbury, sticking to the shorter distance instead of stepping up in trip, something which can only help with the ground on the Soft side.
Evidently a small field suits him, as displayed his reasy win in a similar sized field at Musselburgh last time.
Given sensible time to recover between races, he can follow up here.
Saturday’s best bet:
2.25 Doncaster – BetBright Handicap Chase – 2 San Benedeto (win) @ 5/2 with bet365
