Guest Post: Beckett 2YO Debut Winners

With the recent wet weather, Turf racing is about as patchy as the final furlong of Leicester racecourse. However, thankfully, we have the all-weather to keep our spirits high. A sharp frost clears the sky to a sunny day. 

I'm hoping horse trainer Ralph Beckett will give some cause to cheer. 

Over the years, I have researched this trainer to an in-depth level. It's surprising what you can learn from studying horse trainers big and small. 

Taking a look at the 4:55 Kempton - 

This race details a number of potentially fair juveniles. I would suggest letting the betting settle because it could well help pinpoint the major contenders. 

Ralph Beckett fields Crispina a daughter of Kingman in the ownership of Khalid Abdullah. It's interesting to note there has been money for this May foal, which is a very good sign for this stable. This year we have seen a couple of two-year-olds which have been very well supported on debut and they have both won and horses with a touch of class. 

Wyclif was seriously backed on debut when hammering the opposition by over three-lengths and most recently runner-up at Listed class.

Heart Reef took her time to get motoring on debut at Haydock but won going away in the final furlong to win by more than a length.   

Kinross (pictured) was the perfect example of a Beckett debut winner when flying eight-lengths clear of the runner-up at Newmarket earlier this month. 

Another debutant who went close when fancied on debut was Annie De Vega who ran on with purpose when finishing third on debut when behind King Carney who has proven himself to be a smart performer winning at Listed class (beating Wyclif in the process). 

Crispina is worth noting in the betting and if starting favourite is likely to go well on her debut over this 7f trip.

Update: Crispina was much too keen and ruined its chance. Keep an eye on this horse next start.

  1. Looking forward to see how Crispina goes here for Ralph Beckett. He has done well with a number of two-year-olds this season and if fancied in the betting I suspect Crispina will go well.
