Saddler's Rock: Doncaster doubt

Sky Bet

John Oxx has issued a note of caution over the participation of Saddler's Rock in next week's Stobart Doncaster Cup.

The Goodwood Cup winner was disappointing on his latest outing in the Lonsdale Cup at York, during a spell where the trainer was concerned over the form of his string.

"He will work on Tuesday and then we'll see," said Oxx.

"He was ridden very well but didn't run great at York, and it might be too soon.

"The horses are great now, but we went a bit quiet in August.

"He seems in good form but he could go for the Prix du Cadran instead."
