Weekly 2-Year-old Eye-Catchers (Monday 16th-Sunday 22nd September)

14:10 Yarmouth 18 Sep 2019: 

There was a lot to like about Kinsmans debut at Yarmouth last week. The Exceed And Excel colt was foaled on the 26th March 2017. Trained by William Haggas and owned and bred by Cheveley Park Stud. Kinsman was well-supported at Yarmouth when sent off 3/1 second favourite. James Doyle settled Kinsman towards the rear before being checked when making his move a couple of furlongs out, don't get me wrong am not sure if Kinsman would have got close to the winner Maqtal, but he stayed on towards the finish and should know a lot more next timeout. 

13:30 Ayr 19 Sep 2019: 

A nice little race here with the Tom Dascombe trained Morisco winning nicely. I had my eye on two here, the first was the Mark Johnston trained Salamanca School who stayed on steadily to finish third in what was a pleasing debut. This 65,000 euro Rock Of Gibraltar colt should know more next timeout. The next is definitely one for the future. The Kevin Ryan trained homebred colt Will Sommers was easy to back on his first day at school. The way the Teofilo colt fell out the stalls showed inexperience and reflected in his 8/1 starting price. Will Sommers was still the backmarker with two furlongs to go until jockey Tom Eaves gave him a wake-up call with a crack of the whip, and he stayed on strongly past beaten horses. Will Sommers will be a lot more streetwise next timeout and hopefully, Kevin Ryan runs him again before he is put away to strengthen up over the winter. 

13:15 Newbury 20 Sep 2019: 

I’m guessing King Ragnar went into a lot of notebooks after his debut at Newbury last week. The Roger Varian trained Hot Streak colt was purchased by Owner Sheikh Mana Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum for 60,000 euros and looks a bargain. The market support was all for King Ragnar as he started off 5/2 favourite for his debut against more experienced rivals. The winner that day was a tracker of mine called Theotherside who won for trainer Richard Hannon at odds of 33/1 and looks a nice type for the future. King Ragnar did everything wrong that day but still managed to finish a close second. The experience should stand him in good stead for his next time on the racecourse. I imagine he won’t be much of a price though. 

15:25 Newbury 20 Sep 2019: 

This was a nice little Conditions race and went to the talented Tritonic for the Alan King stable. The second that day was Man Of The Night who his very well-thought-of by trainer Richard Hannon. This was a promising run by my next eye-catcher Code Of Conduct who was making his debut for trainer Roger Charlton and is owned by the Queen. The homebred Siyouni colt attracted some late support when he was slashed from 50/1 to 33/1 at the off. Considering his opposition and inexperience this was a race full of promise. Slowly away and pushed along by jockey Jason Watson before staying on well in the closing stages. One to keep an eye out for the next timeout. Thanks for reading and good luck.
