Friday's 2YO Racing Tips

Plenty of two-year-old races to look at here. 

Let's see if we can put an each-way double or treble up with a fighting chance. 

2:05 Ascot - 

7f Charbonnel Et Walker British EBF Maiden Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Sire And Dam Restricted Race) (Class 3) (2yo)

Going: Good

Runners: 11

Debutantes come in two forms: easy winners or poor losers. Fair enough, plenty fall in between. Prince Eiji is of interest for Roger Varian. This truly expensive colt cost 2,600,000 guineas. This son of Dubawi is well respected in the stable. There was a lot to like about Bangkok who went close on debut for Andrew Balding. That runner may give value to Prince Eiji at each-way odds. It may be a weakness if drifting markedly in the betting. However, I would be surprised if this two-year-old doesn't have ability. 

Prince Eiji 7/1 1st

4:25 Musselburgh - 

7f (7f33y) Best Odds Guaranteed At 188Bet British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Auction Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Class 4) (2yo)

Going: Good 

Runners: 9 

Mark Johnston holds this British-bred son of Farrh in high regard. Sky Defender was unlucky to be beaten on debut at Goodwood. There was something amiss at York when contesting the Convivial Maiden Stakes. To be favourite for the richest Maiden in Europe says it all. This will be a much easier task. As long as this horse is at best he should prove a hard opponent to beat. 

Sky Defender 5/4 1st

£5 each-way double - Pays £98.7  ''WINNER''

If you fancy a speculative accumulator these four will go well:

2:05 Ascot -  Prince Eiji (7/1)
4:25 Musselburgh - Sky Defender (5/4)
6:15 Kempton - Artois (11/2) 
7:15 Kempton - Dandhu (10/3)
