High hopes: Top jockey Jamie Spencer will be on board Norville at Doncaster

Maralin trainer Lee Smyth, who registered success on Derby day at Down Royal last weekend for the second successive year, has his sights set on Doncaster today and tomorrow with a trio of runners.

Norville, from the same stable as Cheers Buddy which won the ValuCabs Handicap at the Maze last weekend, targets the CL Medicall Aid Handicap with top jockey and former dual Champion jockey Jamie Spencer in the saddle. Smyth has booked apprentice Megan Carberry - one of the younger Carberry clan - for his runner Shrewd in the long distance MDL Energy Handicap.

The Ulster trainer has Duncan Of Scotland engaged in the two- year-old maiden over seven furlongs at the Yorkshire course tomorrow and has booked Graham Lee, the former jump jockey who turned his attentions to flat racing a couple of years ago.

Having won an Aintree Grand National (Amberliegh House in 2004) Lee added the Ascot Gold Cup to his CV at the Royal meeting last week on the Ed Dunlop- trained Trip To Paris.

Duncan Of Scotland showed promise on his debut when finishing fourth at Ayr last month again with Graham Lee in the saddle.
