Racing League: Team ODDSbible and Ireland enjoy Doncaster doubles as Racehorse Lotto take narrow lead |  Racing News

There was double delight for team ODDSbible and Team Ireland on raceday two of the Racing League, as Frankie Dettori’s Newmarket Red squandered their early lead.

Dettori, making his Racing League debut at Doncaster on Thursday, took the pre-competition favorites past 100 points with a third-placed finish in the opening race, but the ever-consistent Team Racehorse Lotto ended the night on top.

Two third-placed finishes, a fourth and a fifth saw Racehorse Lotto, represented by trainers George Boughey, James Ferguson, William Knight and Stuart Williams, pick up valuable points throughout and move onto 122 points, three clear of BullionVault.
