Weekly 2-year-old Eye-catchers (Monday 12 - Sunday 18th August)

18:00 Windsor 12 Aug 2019: 

Clegane has had two runs for trainer Ed Walker. To be honest, this daughter of Iffraaj hasn't done anything wrong on both starts. Market support on her debut run, she looked professional enough when staying on to finish sixth to Hot Touch. Her latest run on Monday night at Windsor was also a race full of promise. Having the worst draw in stall one, Clegane was slowly away and stuck at the back before making headway and finishing a never nearer sixth. A bit more luck next timeout should see this filly in with a chance to land the spoils. 

14:30 Beverley 14 Aug 2019: 

Wise Glory looked clueless on debut and despite the market support this Muhaarar colt definitely needed the experience. Simon Crisfords homebred colt was poorly drawn and always behind until staying on to snatch third despite looking awkward for most of the race. No significant entries as yet. I will be interested to see his next run and wouldn't be surprised to see him step up to a mile next time out. 

14:00 Beverley 15 Aug 2019: 

Band Practice has been unlucky on both her runs so far this season. The Archie Watson filly made her debut at Lingfield against the highly-rated Al Raya. Considering that was her first run she showed a lot of promise that day when only beaten just over 3 lengths. Band Practice looked to be in with a shout at Beverley on Thursday only for the saddle to slip and that was the end of that. Well-supported that day I think she would have definitely gone close and to add to the confidence behind her she has been given a Cheverly Park Group 1 Stakes entry. The Clipper Logistics chestnut filly is one to follow this season. 

13:50 Salisbury 15 Aug 2019: 

Single is another bargain-basement buy for owner and trainer Mick Channon, who cost just 5,000 gns. Some late support for this Nathaniel filly at Salisbury on debut. Despite looking green David Egan gave her a lovely introduction to the racecourse and late progress makes her a filly to look out for next timeout. 

13:50 Newbury 16 Aug 2019: 

Convict made a pleasing debut for trainer William Haggas. The starting price of Convict reflected on his chances but this chestnut Australia colt fell out the stalls. Kept at the back for most of the race by Richard Kingscote until making late progress the final furlong. I will definitely be looking out for this Derby entry and a step up in trip will see him get his head in front soon enough. 

13:40 Doncaster 17 Aug 2019: 

Ruby Shield is a 2-year-old War Front bay filly owned by Richard Henry and trained by Richard Fahey. Ruby Shield made a pleasing debut in a Doncaster 1 mile Maiden Fillies Stakes race yesterday. She was keen early on before settling at the halfway point before gradually staying on without threatening the well-thought-of Alpen Rose. Hopefully, she can improve the next timeout and pick up a small race. 

Thanks for reading and keep a lookout for next week's eye catches to follow.
