Monday's 2yo Racing Tips (17th October)

1:00 Pontefract - 

No great opinion. The favourites have had four race plus and that is usually bad news. Although they can win as favourites. Looks an open if not lowly race. 

1:50 Windsor - 

Proverb is a short price and carries the penalty. Radio Goo Goo keeps trying and had little luck but deserves a victory. Visor applied. Run seven times and which brings concerns. Probably there to be shot at but a horse with a chance even if the odds are against it. Lulworth Cove hasn't been seen for 142 days. Seemed outpaced over the 5f at Salisbury and may need further. If priced 13/2 and less sp would bring added confidence. Paul Cole's two-year-olds have been in good form. Desert Fighter hasn't been seen for 51 days and drops back in trip. A decent looking colt, and this could be viewed on race grade a drop in class, but need to improve a lot and a transformation for this lay off. I'm not sure if this drop in distance is a positive. The betting will be key. Has fair stats if backed to 13/2 and less sp but unlikely to win if double-figure odds.An outsider worth checking in the market is Rae Guest's Empire Of The Sun. Would need to be backed to 20/1 and less sp. Does well in the month of October with debutantes although the money needs to come. 

2:00 Pontefract - 

Listed race. Will be watching. 

7:00 Wolverhampton - 

A D banded race. The Thames Boatman makes his fourth start. Often a negative but when favourite a fighting chance. Clipsham La Habana is a sturdy-looking colt who ran well on debut when relatively fancied. Always a good time to bet, second start, especially when most have run plenty of times and looks a decent chance although no great value. Colours Of Freedom makes his debut for Archie Watson and would need to be in single-figure odds to hold any great hope.
