Saturday's 2-Year-Old Previews Plus Reviews


The highs and lows of horse racing was summed up in one day yesterday. I had two each way speculative bets, the first was Wadi Al Sail who to be honest was never really involved but as Jason commented on my post Wadi Al Sail could be worth looking out for in nursery class. After that disaster things go through my mind like why do I even bother writing posts when they finish second to last. Next up was Kumasi who I took an early price of 14/1. I watched this one in work and I felt a bit more confident when I saw some support. Even though Kumasi finished second I was pleased I got a run for my money anyway. Sky Power ran a promising debut and is one who will be winning soon enough.

What a race to look forward to here. Plenty of the top yard brings some really nice 2-year-olds hoping to take home the £22,684 prize money plus adding black-type to their name. The early betting indicates it will be a wide open race with the Irish trained San Pedro heading the market at this early stage. One thing is for sure is San Pedro will enjoy this ease in the ground after winning his Maiden on heavy going. The one who I will be hoping can sneak a place is the Charlie Appleby trained *Broccaccio who hasn't been seen since winning a Novice Stakes race at the end of May. That was a smart performance first time up and showed he was up for a battle when the challenges came. The lay off plus the ground is a worry against some smart performers today but hopefully the 850,000 gns yearling can run a nice race and confirm why Charlie Appleby gave him significant entries this season.

Trying to solve this puzzle of a race tomorrow is a bloody nightmare with nearly all the field unraced. Dusty Dream is an exception to that as the Dubawi filly has already had a taste of the hustle and bustle of a race day. The William Haggas filly is owned by the Queen and ridden by Tom Marquand. I liked the fact that Dusty Dream was well-supported on debut and although she was too keen to do herself justice Dusty Dream was up with the pace until tiring in the last furlong. Dusty Dream had an early entry for the Group 1 Fillies Mile but never ran, maybe that was a bit optimistic but hopefully she can improve to grab a place at least here. At the time of writing, she is 14/1.

Cruyff is another tracker of mine and to be honest am not holding out much hope for this Richard Spencer Dutch Art colt. The only reason I will have a small each way bet is that he was given a few significant entries. His debut race at York didn’t fill me with confidence but you never know. 

Good luck and thanks for reading.
