1:50 Nottingham Horse Betting Blog (26th Oct) EBF STALLIONS GOLDEN HORN MAIDEN STAKES (Plus 10 Race) (Div I) (CLASS 4) (2yo)

An EBF Maiden Stakes over 1m 75y on good going. Twelve two-year-olds take part. Eight horses have race experience. 

I'm going to try not to ramble on as I still feel rather lacking in motivation with these giant maidens. 

Azam was fancied on debut and finished a creditable fourth. This bay colt, a son of Dansili, This 260,000G yearling purchase has sound each-way claims.

Roger Varian's juveniles have finally sprung into life after struggling with the virus for the early part of the season. Dhajeej cost 130,000G. He finished a promising second when racing at Yarmouth behind Wolf Country from Charlie Appleby's stable.

Melting Dew was priced 9/2 for Sir Michael Stoute on debut at Kempton. He needed the race and will appreciate this extra furlong. Fair claims if priced 13/2 & less SP. Best watched if weak in the betting. 

Alaik is one of the better debutantes from Saeed bin Suroor. 

Conclusion: No strong view about this contest. Azam & Dhajeej have valuable race experience and will be primed to go well. The betting will tell the story regarding Melting Dew. If priced 13/2 & less it would give stronger claims.
