Noble Dynasty Goes Close on Debut


It’s been great watching top-class Flat racing again over the weekend and while all eyes were on the 1000 and 2000 Guineas I was more interested in the new talents stepping onto the racecourse for the first time. 

I mentioned Europe's 2019 highest priced yearling Noble Dynasty who cost 3,600,000 guineas as one to watch out for at Newmarket and even though the Dubawi colt got beat by stablemate Modern News he ran a race full of promise and will be winning in the very near future. 

Another Godolphin runner I was keen to see back out again was Eastern World who was taking on King Leonidas, despite giving weight away King Leonidas put the Godolphin runner in his place with an impressive performance. 

I have a few trackers that I will mention for the week ahead, but as always the 2-year-olds are always a gamble first timeout. 

Wednesday 10th June Pontefract 12.45 

INHALER could be an interesting one and I will be keeping a close eye on this Karl Burke trained £32,000 yearling in the betting when he appears at either Haydock or Pontefract this week. Any money for the son of Elzaam will be positive. He’s currently 14/1 at the time of writing for the Haydock race tomorrow but with plenty of rain, I wonder if he will run. It also looks a competitive race with top yards out in force. 

Wednesday 10th June 4.35 Yarmouth 

SPARKLING OLLY has an early entry for Yarmouth and will hopefully run. The 300,000 gns purchase at the 2018 October Yearling Sales wasn’t fancied when going off a 33/1 shot on debut at Newmarket last October. 

Sparkling Olly was always up with the pace and looked like she knew her job from the start, it was only the last furlong or so when she ran green and could never land a blow. It looked like she had more to give to me and should have learned plenty from that experience. A well-bred filly related to Railway Stakes winner Lilbourne Lad. 

Wednesday 10th June 2.25 Pontefract

This tracker I have had for a while so I will be checking the market for sure. SANDS OF GIZA for Richard Fahey and the Cool Silk team. Purchased for £67,000 at the 2018 Premier Yearling sales and a half-brother to Sands Of Mali. 

Wednesday 10th June 6.45 Yarmouth 

MAGICAL MORNING The homebred bay colt looks the type to improve as a 3-year-old after an encouraging performance at Kempton last October. This is the first offspring of Dam The Lark who ended her career with an official rating of 106 after running to a decent level in Pattern races as a 3-year-old. The highlight winning the Group 2 Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster in 2013. 

Magical Morning took a slight drift in the betting from 7/2 to 9/2 before the off and showed a sign of greenness when slowly away, it wasn’t till a few furlongs out the penny dropped and Magical Morning improved to move up the field and finish a no nearer sixth. The winner at Kempton that day was the impressive Satono Japan who looks a useful sort. A step up in trip will hopefully bring out more improvement to the Muhaarar Colt. 

Good luck and stay safe.
