Last Week's 2YO Eye Catchers (7th November)


Just a quick update on yesterday's post. 

I mentioned French Asset was an eye-catcher on debut and thought the Michael Stoute colt would progress at Nottingham, with the ground and short price I decided not to bet. Not sure if it was the heavy going or French Asset is just disappointing but I will keep an eye on the betting next timeout.

Hesssa turned out to be a non-runner and again the heavy going could have been the reason for that. 

Oriental Mystique turned out to be my only bet of the day and was ridden more prominent today by Jim Crowley. She came to win her race at the furlong pole and won well at odds of 4/1. I think she had a bit left in the tank and looks a nice filly for the future. It was finally nice to get a much-needed win after a few disappointments and placed efforts in the last few posts.

Cosmic Princess looked a 33/1 shot the first half of her debut race at Kempton last week. The Hughie Morrison Kingman filly was drawn out wide and lost a few lengths at the start. Hollie Doyle looked to have Cosmic Princess on and off the bridle for the first few furlongs until she seemed to grasp the idea that she was in a race and stayed on nicely all the way to the line. I thought that was a real eye-catching debut, and she will have learned plenty from her first racecourse experience. Another one to take out of this race is the John Gosden filly Shimmering who was an 8/1 shot for her debut race at Kempton. The 150,000 gns yearling was another who was drawn wide and lost a few lengths tracking over to the inside. Jockey Robert Havlin gave her a nice experience without giving the Lope De Vega filly a hard time. Owner Lloyd Webber looks to have a nice filly on his hands here and will be more competitive next start am sure.

Thumur will have gone into many notebooks after a promising debut. The Owen Burrows Golden Horn colt was a 220,000 gns purchase for owner Mr. Hamdan Al Maktoum as a yearling. Thumur was slowly away and well-behind before making eye-catching progress and ran on well inside the final furlong for jockey Jim Crowley. Even though he couldn’t land a blow Thumur will have learned plenty and one to keep on the right side of when making his next appearance.

Morlaix was given as a horse to follow by apprentice jockey Poppy Bridgwater when she answered a few questions for my blog. The Mayson bay gelding won’t be a superstar but stepped up on his debut run when staying on without threatening the winner at Kempton last timeout. Trained by David Simcock, I will be keeping an eye out when Morlaix runs over further in a small race. 

Thanks for reading and good luck
