Dulas To Make His Return At Leicester (23rd September)

13:50 Leicester 23 Sep 2019: 

This looks like a nice little race to look forward to here. The market will be the clue for a few of these potentially nice newcomers. Highest Ground is a homebred Frankel colt for Sir Michael Stoute. Owned and bred by Niarchos Family. Ryan Moore takes the ride. Needs a market check on debut. 

Mostaqel was a 200,000 gns purchased as a yearling for the Richard Hannon team. Another one who needs a market check on debut. Richard Hannon has a pretty decent strike rate at Leicester so always worth considering his 2-year-old newcomers. 

Macho Boy was up with the pace until tiring the last furlong in what was a nice 2-year-old race with the winner Cherokee Trail winning again since. Should have more to offer today. 

Law Of Peace looks the one to beat here after two narrow defeats. The Charlie Appleby Shamardal colt has looked the likely winner on both but been outbattled at the finish. Last time out he had a ding-dong battle with the John Gosden newcomer Enemy with the pair drawing clear of third-placed Crystal Pegasus. Will be a short price so no bet for me even though looks a nice type.

DULAS has been on my tracker list since he was given a nice introduction at Newmarket back in July. Make no mistake, that was a pretty damn hot maiden. The winner Al Madhar for Richard Hannon looks a horse with a nice future also the second Al Suhail has run in a Group 3 race at Sandown. The seventh, eighth and even the eleventh Celtic Art have all won. Dulas is trained by Charlie Hills and purchased for 60,000 gns last October. Been off the tracker for 73 days but hopefully, fitness won’t be a worry here. Another positive is the smartly bred Raven’s Pass colt was given some significant entries after his promising debut. The one negative was he was declared to run at York a while back but was very keen going to post and ended up being withdrawn before the start of the Convivial Maiden Stakes won by Molatham, trained by Roger Varian. Dulas was well-supported that day which was a good sign. 

Conclusion: Nice little race to look forward too (the benefits of being off work sick). Law Of Peace sets a good standard here with a few potentially nice newcomers. I like Dulas to place at least. Maybe am being a bit optimistic hoping for an each-way price with Dulas but hopefully the Law Of Peace will be backed and Dulas might drift.

Tracker Secret Acquisition: 

A promising debut from Secret Acquisition and an entry for the Group 1 Fillies Mile in October make this Daniel Kubier a horse to follow. The Sea The Stars filly wasn't fancied on debut when 12/1 at the off. Maybe this big entry is ambitious but she looked professional and knew her job from the start. The Hugo palmer newcomer should also be checked on debut.
