War Storms on for the trackers (Plus Reviews And Previews)

What a funny old weekend that was, first was 2/13 shot Calyx getting well and truly turned over by the progressive Kevin Ryan trained Hello Youmzain, who does look a nice horse, to be honest. I did hear the Haydock crowd booing Calyx which is totally unacceptable in my eyes if you're backing a 2/13 shot you have to be out of your mind. 

The Irish 2,000 Guineas was won by the Charlie Hills-trained colt Phoenix of Spain, he lowered the colours of the two fancied runners Too Darn Hot and Magna Grecia. The 16/1 shot ran a superb race with Jamie Spencer giving a masterclass of a ride. People are talking like Too Darn Hot is passed it or hasn't trained on but come on two seconds in Group races this season is still pretty impressive to me. 


I mentioned three trackers on Saturday and first up was the Charlie Appleby trained Silent Wave, this War Front filly was backed into 10/11 favourite after opening up evens favourite, it was a no bet for me at that price but was very impressive from the start and looked very professional in her work winning by just under 3-lengths. Betfair has quoted her 14/1 for the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot. 

Endowed was my next tracker at Chester, I did have a small win bet on this Richard Hannon trained colt but the writing was on the wall a few furlongs out when Rossie Ryan was struggling to keep him straight, he looks a very awkward ride and that loser brought an end to my good run betting on 2-year-old horses.

I didn't have to wait too long till I was back in the game when my next bet War Storm (pictured) won well at York. I was in two minds whether to back this Archie Watson trained colt by Due Diligence because he was on the drift in the morning, but I bit the bullet and had an each way bet at 4/1, he was well-supported into 5/2 favourite on the off. War Storm broke well and was prominent throughout the race, I was a bit worried about the well-backed Johnston horse Makyon who wouldn't go away but War Storm ran on well to win by 2-lengths and could be another horse going to Royal Ascot. 

The Saturday Trixie Review:

First up was Aarons bet, who to be honest has been in great form but I think he got a bit too big for his boots when he tried to pick the winner of 19 horse sprint Handicap(only messing mate haha) anyway El Astronaute finished midfield. Sams selection Canyon City tailed off but at least stayed on its feet. War Storm was my first win and hopefully, I can pull the gap back a bit more this weekend, so keep a look out on Saturday.
