Buzz is the word for Donny fi­nale

Sunderland Echo - - Cricket and racing -

Buzz can end an in­cred­i­ble week for Hughie Mor­ri­son by bring­ing down the cur­tain on the Flat turf sea­son with vic­tory in the Marathon­bet Novem­ber Hand­i­cap at Don­caster to­mor­row.

The East Il­s­ley han­dler en­dured the eu­pho­ria and then the agony of watch­ing Marmelo fin­ish sec­ond in the Mel­bourne Cup on Tuesday but can at least have the sat­is­fac­tion of end­ing the do­mes­tic cam­paign on a high.

Buzz heads to Town Moor on the back of a suc­cess at New­bury in Septem­ber over a mile and a quar­ter on soft ground.

He only got up in the very last stride that day and will be much more at home over a mile and a half, hav­ing won over this dis­tance in July.

Be­ing by Mo­ti­va­tor, Buzz will not mind any cut in the ground.

Don­juan Tri­umphant can take ad­van­tage of a drop in grade to get his head in front for the first time in over a year in the Marathon­bet Of­fi­cial Global Part­ner Of Manch­ester City Went­worth Stakes.

The An­drew Bald­ing­trainend five-year-old ran a tremen­dous race to fin­ish fourth in the Hay­dock Sprint Cup on heavy ground and put in an­other great ef­fort when third to Sands Of Mali in the Bri­tish Cham­pi­ons Sprint at As­cot last month.

He drops in to Listed com­pany af­ter those two Group One con­tests and can be re­warded with a de­served suc­cess.
