Racing: Majed bets may be lost

Click to follow
MAJED, one of the best-backed horses for Saturday's November Handicap, may sidestep the race despite clinching victory at Newcastle yesterday.

Mary Reveley's five-year-old remains 10-1 third-favourite with William Hill, the sponsors of Saturday's race, but needs give in the ground to produce his best form. The Doncaster track currently has good to firm patches.

Fast going at Exeter has not deterred Waterloo Boy and Deep Sensation from contesting a fascinating Haldon Gold Cup Chase today.

Unlike Waterloo Boy, Deep Sensation has a far from impressive first-time-out record - beaten four times in the last five seasons. They are taken on by Travado, last season's leading novice.
