Doncaster Tips: Marseille
Related to a pair of smart sprinters and shaped encouragingly on turf debut at start of the month.
Marseille is half-sister to the smart sprinters Judicial and Marsha and it’s likely she is a good deal better than a mark of 73.
Largely campaigned on the all-weather, she won a valuable maiden at Newcastle in April and then proved able on turf when chasing home Justanotherbottle.
Hampered leaving the stalls she was always playing catch-up but despite the winner getting first run she matched his closing sectional. In defeat she earned an adjusted speed rating of 75 and given her pedigree there could be more to come.
