Doncaster Tips: Oh This Is Us
Record over 7f is 1183 but unlucky last twice. Ran rapid 21.7s sectional at Lingfield but too far back in steadily run race. Hampered badly at Newmarket the time before.
Oh This Is Us has won four of his twelve career starts and is a horse on the upgrade, especially over 7f. His record at this trip is 1183 but he’s been unlucky on his last two starts.
At Lingfield the race wasn’t run to suit. The winner dominated throughout setting a pedestrian gallop (107.8% finishing speed) and on a sharp track Oh This Is Us was left with too much to do. From a hopeless position, he clocked a final closing sectional of 21.7s and anything below 22s at Lingfield is smart.
The time before he was beaten over 7f at Newmarket but he was twice stopped in his run, whilst still travelling strongly and the result is best ignored.
Having endured a quiet autumn, the Hannon yard are firing again with 10 winners in the last fortnight. Oh This Is Us can keep the good run going.
