With action in the United States claiming a number of high-profile riders tonight, the excellent Richard Kingscote is called up for East Asia (Doncaster, Nap, 2.40) in the November Handicap today and the combination could be tough to match. to resist.
William Buick, riding for Godolphin at Del Mar tonight, has built a potent relationship with the six-year-old and it was the champion jockey runner-up who produced the selection with a blistered foot spin to land a well-contested Nottingham Handicap the last. time.
Super-sub Kingscote is tasked with trying to execute the same patient tactics on Town Moor, and if he can fix his mount with the same experience as his colleague, the duo seem capable of putting up a powerful bid on the last big turf handicap of the season. .

It is not always easy to evaluate what horses have achieved in the final stages of races.
Too strong an early gallop can cause speed to collapse and those sitting in the rear mounted quietly, like East Asia at Nottingham, can benefit.
Fortunately, the general and sectional times help us to form a picture of the way the race was run, as the last three-stadium division that East Asia produced with an even, rather than scorching, gallop was a test. of his ability.

The selection was only four pitches slower than the sprinter in form that Raasel took to cover the same distance and earn a useful five furlong handicap on the same scorecard, despite East Asia covering the additional nine stadiums to land his event.
That performance marked East Asia as a well-treated statesman with a standing twist and suggested that the drop to 12 stadia and the prospect of a genuine early pace should be fitting.
Hopefully Kingscote can take advantage of that natural exaltation and speed and be late to the scene to employ his mount’s powerful gearshift.
