At Last, The Flat Season is Underway


At last, the Flat season is underway and hopefully, I can get a few winners to keep the betting bank ticking over. 

Just a quick introduction to what the blog is about for any new readers who have stumbled across it. I will be mentioning a few horses in each post that l like and hopefully do a midweek review to see how they ran. 

I will also like to add that I’m definitely no Hugh Taylor so be warned if you follow any of my bets they come with a warning 😁. 

It’s been a strange week as I’ve been trying to be careful with all the 2-year-old debutants this week and ended up missing out on a couple of winners plus a 3-year-old winner which was disappointing as my only three bets so far that I have done all lost! 

In my Godolphin 2yos to Follow post, I mentioned the well-bred Creative Force who is trained by Charlie Appleby and a half-brother to the John Gosden filly Persuasive. To be honest, I didn’t even notice he was running till he won impressively after making all at Newmarket this week.

Creative Force looks a 2-year-old with a bright future. 

Renaissance Queen was another I left alone and another who looks a nice type for the boys in blue after beating the well-thought-of Delta’s Royalty. 

The Tom Dascombe trained Adaay Dream was another tracker I left alone who won at Newcastle at odds of 13/2 which was disappointingly another missed chance. 

A few more Dascombe 2yos I will be looking out for are: Astronomic Choice who is owned and bred by Mr. John Brown. 

Bakersboy is a 100,000 purchase for owners David Lowe and Partner. 

Rattling Rosie owned and bred by Mr. D.R. Passant. 

Solent Gateway is owned by Mr. D.R. Passant & Heffin Williams.

Capo Bay is owned by Deva Racing Group. 

Robustly is owned by Chasemore Farm. 

Always Dreaming is owned by Ms. A Quinn. 

Right onto the weekend and the trackers are coming through thick and fast but disappointingly most are short prices so won’t be betting.

The expensive Noble Dynasty was featured in my Godolphin 2yos to follow post and is a 3,600,000 purchase and a half-brother to the brilliant 122 rated Barney Roy who won the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2017 but another likely short price.

King Leonidas was very impressive when winning his maiden at Newmarket last October and will be a tough nut to crack but the Charlie Appleby trained Eastern World is a very well-thought-of Dubawi colt and will give him something to think about for sure. Eastern World made his long-awaited debut last December and was backed like defeat was out of the question. The 10/11 favourite managed to finish second despite looking a bit awkward and green through-out the race. Interesting to see what he can do this season but an early price of 6/5 makes it a race to just watch and enjoy.

It's not very often you will see me step into the handicapping scene but another Godolphin horse catches the eye. *Encipher is a well-thought-of colt trained by John Gosden who won a shade cosily at Newmarket last July, hasn't been seen since but will hopefully be fit and ready to move up a level and distance with Frankie on board. If I can get an each-way price I will have a bet. Good luck and stay safe.
