Monday's 2YO Racing Update (12th September)

A few races today: 

2:25 Brighton - 

Short priced favourite and little value at the top of the market. 

2:50 Thirsk - 

Looks a competitive race with Tabaretta, James McHenry and In These Shoes. All look decent horses. Not giving much away on the prices. 

6:00 Kempton - 

A tricky looking race with a couple of winners with penalties. The two favourite don't look much value at all and may be there to be shot at. I see Hill Cove was with Tuite and now with Portman. It was given a class 2 stakes entry with Tuite. Looked keen on debut and ran wide which didn't help. Not the easiest horse to assess but may have a glimmer of hope. Sto Portman doesn't have the best stats 13/2 and less 12% which is about 8/1 and 52% place which is price to chance. Interesting to see if goes ok after a long time off course. The entry gives a little bit of interest. Topo Chico was half fancied on debut but looked very inexperienced. May have a hope but not the easiest to assess. These two are most likely the only value against the favourite but have something to prove. 

6:30 Kempton - 

Quite an interesting race. Sir Mark Prescott's Alexandretta ran a brilliant race last time out and the form looks strong. You would imagine will take some beating. You couldn't knock Tom Ward's Lady Dreamer who ran very well on debut and looks likely to improve for the step up in distance. Adding to the mix is Zarga for Stoute who was a high stat horse when beaten favourite at Goodwood a class 2 race. It wouldn't surprise me to see Stoute's run better today as he does do well at Kempton and this turning course may help. Difficult to know who will win but I would favour Prescott's although stoutes may have some value if drifting a touch in the betting and have ew claims. But I'd have to see the betting nearer the off. I do think Prescott's sets a very good level of form.
