The second consecutive Saturday evening meeting at Doncaster takes place this weekend.

It’s Wraggs Seafoods Evening – a seven-race programme starting at 5.15pm.

Leeds-based Wraggs Seafoods support all seven races, featuring The Pescafria Handicap Stakes, a £19,000 contest for three-year-olds over seven furlongs, and The Arctic Warrior Handicap Stakes, a race for sprinters over six furlongs.

Apprentice jockeys take part in the opening race, The Polonus Apprentice Handicap Stakes over one mile and a half, while the longest race of the evening, The Bardi Handicap Stakes is contested over the St Leger distance of one mile, six furlongs and 132 yards.

At the conclusion of racing, ‘Murphy’s Marbles’ will play their Irish brand of music live on stage in the main stand.

The giant screen situated opposite the main stands will enable race-goers to see all of the action.

A shuttle bus service will be in operation from the railway station.
