Strong Power Takes on the Godolphin Four (2.25 Newmarket)

2.25 Newmarket

Montaz Restaurant British EBF Novice Stakes (Plus 10)(2YO Only) 

A decent looking 2-year-old race to get stuck into here with a few nice looking newcomers, plus a couple who have already had the experience of the racecourse. 

1 City Walk: I always make a note of S Bin Suroor first runners of the 2-year-old season, and if you have read some of my past posts you will know it was going to be Making History but for whatever reason he wasn't declared, which was frustrating for me as I wrote about him twice, anyway enough waffling on, this 70.000 yearling could be the second string with Pat Cosgrove on board, last year Pat had four 2-year-old rides for this yard and no winners. 

2 Electrical Storm: Another S Bin Suroor runner with Ryan Moore booked to ride this Dubawi colt, looking a bit deeper at the jockey booking shows that Ryan Moore has only ever ridden for this yard twice over the past four years and the result was a third and an eighth place, not sure what to make of that, to be honest. 

3 Full Verse: This Charlie Appleby Colt has a huge price tag around his neck, 600,000 gns in fact, I know the horse doesn't know this, but he will be expected to perform at a high level in the future. Will it be today? Who knows but James Doyle will be doing his best am sure. James Doyle has a great record over the past three years, 10 wins from 17 rides in 2-year-old novice and maiden company at Newmarket which is pretty good going if you ask me. 

4 Lexington Quest: Lexington Quest was Richard Hannon's first 2-year-old runner of the season and had an early entry for the Brocklesby but never ran, so when he ran at Windsor and was backed into 5/2 favourite I expected a good run but was never involved and looked very green. 

5 Millionaire Waltz: Runs for the Paul Cole Yard who has only run one 2-year-old this season, and it was a 16/1 winner, you never know what to expect with Paul Cole runners sometimes they can win at big odds but at Newmarket, his record is 0 wins out of 7 runners.

6 Percy Green: 40.000 yearling from the Karl Burke yard who doesn't have many 2-year-old winners in April and has already had a few runners this April with no joy. 

7 Strong Power: This Kodiac colt ran a great race in the Brocklesby and finished second to Show Me Show Me, that looks a decent performance as a few horses have franked the Brocklesby form already, so I would be expecting improvement from this George Scott trained runner. 

8 Well of Wisdom: Second runner for the Charlie Appleby stable. William Buick rides this Oasis Dream colt, Buick also has a great record riding Charlie Appleby 2-year-old horses at Newmarket, over the past three years he’s had 24 rides with 11 wins in novice and maiden races. 

Conclusion: As you probably know yourself this is a dam hard race to solve, but this could produce a few winners in the future so I will be keeping an eye out for a few of these. As always I think the market will prove the answer and if Strong Power is available at an each-way price I could be tempted. 

Thanks for reading and good luck whatever you bet on.
