A few two-year-old races today so I will detail a few brief thoughts:
1:50 Leicester - Going: Good to Soft
Son of Frankel, Westerland, was fancied on debut for John Gosden and given a nice introduction. Looks a decent chance here but not much meat on the bone. George finished behind that day but has been entered for the Woodcote Stakes, which is a significant sign. May have to chase home the favourite but is a fair sort. Interesting to see Simon Crisford's, Match Maker, an 180,000G two-year-old buy. Crisford sent out many debut winners last season and a horse to fear. An outsider with some hope may be Harry Dunlop's Fighting Irish. He is usually as poor as hell with debutantes but can pop up with a huge priced winner when he gets a decent talent. A 40/1 shot in the betting. If touching 100/1s on the exchanges is worth a punt. This bay son of Camelot cost 70,000G at the yearling sales. A recent stakes entry could be a sign of hope.
2:20 Leicester -
Leeshaan ran well on debut and worthy of note. James Tate does well with his horses in the ownership of Saeed Manana. Definitely a decent chance and looks ideal to put in an each-way double or treble. I've heard a good word for George Scott's James Garfield. This horse is detailed on Group Horse.
4:20 Leicester -
A controversial race with Jive Lady making a return after a disappointing debut when forwarded to our list of subscribers via Group Horse. I honestly won't know whether to laugh or cry if this horse wins or loses. Time will tell. I tell you, if by some miracle this horse wins easy I'm owed a bloody apology. Even talking about this horse makes my blood boil. Jokers. Charlie Appleby has been seen walking across the river Thames so you may as well bet on Roussel. A £360,000 breeze-up purchase. A lot of money and his record this season has been something to behold. Demons Rock is a fast horse and could well figure. He ran well last time out and meets a winning level of ability. Mocead Cappall will struggle to win but has ample pace and may be of interest to a few who like a bet to lay in-running. If employing front-running tactics, should have a few of the fancies on the ropes before struggling to get home.
