2011 Doncaster Mile Prelude Form

#4 Snow Alert

Career: 31-7-5-4


Snow Alert has put in very few poor runs during his career. The five-year-old prefers a dry track but has proved himself on a dead rated track in the past.

#13 Lebrechaun

Career: 20-7-3-4

4th race this prep

Lebrechaun has put in three good runs during this current prep, winning the Listed National Sprint two starts back against a talented field. Definitely in with a chance here.

#15 Glintz

Career: 10-4-1-3

3rd race this prep

Despite a horrible run last start, Glintz has since won a trial race and appears to be back on track. Don’t dismiss him based solely on his last performance.
