August Sale today

SOME 415 lots, made up of Flat and jumps horses in training, Flat breeding-stock plus untried jumps youngsters, are on offer in a two-day sale at Doncaster from today at 11am. The sale has swollen after a glut of late entries.

Tomorrow's session starts at 10am.

The sale offers a mid-season chance for owners and trainers to move on horses, and to try and turn a profit by capitalising on horses who have achieved a good level of form.

Cheltenham Festival winner Alfie Sherrin is a case in point: he was picked up for £110,000 by Jonjo O'Neill at this sale two years ago, when Harry Findlay dispersed the horses he had in training with Paul Nicholls.

Sir Henry Cecil, Roger Charlton, John Gosden and Juddmonte are among the consignors this year

Stand-out lots include:
39) Dushrembrandt: A half-brother to top chaser Sir Rembrandt who has won two point-to-points since April

134A) Union Dues: a supplementary entry, this son of Malinas was a comfortable winner of a Killarney bumper last month on his first start

134B) Foundry Square: Nigel Twiston-Davies trained this son of Oscar to win a Cartmel novice hurdle by a wide margin last month

168A) Allerford Jack:  eight-year-old son of Overbury has won three handicap chases on his last three starts

295) Elegant Concorde: a brother to useful hurdler Majestic Concorde who was 12th in the 2010 Cheltenham Champion Bumper and was a promising third after a long layoff at Galway on Sunday

309) Myplacelater: the Listed-winning daughter of Where Or When could make a fine broodmare. She has beaten the likes of Bullet Train and Wigmore Hall
