Something for the Weekend...


Man Of Promise, On Guard, Magical Morning, Fiesta De Vega, Creative Force, Inhaler, and Renaissance Queen all nice winners for the blog the past week, let's hope a few more nice types come out my horses to follow this season. 

12:15 Sat 13 June 2020 Newbury 

Interesting little race this with the favourite likely to be the John Gosden trained Kingman colt Tsar. The form doesn't look anything special but with winter behind him any amount of improvement is possible. A couple of interesting trackers in the race are Lord Campari and Turaath. 

Lord Campari is also a Kingman colt out of 98 rated Blanche Dubawi and cost 350,000 gns. The Roger Varian trained March foal contested a pretty hot contest in August last year with another Gosden horse Palace Pier winning impressively then going on to win next timeout and making a huge statement for the season ahead when winning a Class 2 Handicap at Newcastle with ease last week. Lord Campari was a no near sixth when they met but despite being a touch keen Lord Campari stayed on steadily and the extra distance will hopefully bring improvement to be involved at the finish.

Turaath would have to improve dramatically here to figure after not showing much on debut at Leicester last September. The Charlie Hills Oasis Dream filly takes on the boys here but is well-bred being out of 110 rated mare Fahdhayyil. A bit clueless on debut I would have liked to see her in an easier race than this and a market check is needed here. 

15:45 Sat 13 June 2020 Sandown 

Most of the top yards turn up for this Maiden Stakes race at Sandown. We have a Gosden newcomer, a Varian Irish Derby entry but I’m giving Gosden's other runner Byzantine Empire a final chance after finishing a pleasing third on his comeback race at Newcastle two weeks ago. The Golden Horn colt is a half-brother to Crazy Horse and Richard Pankhurst who both ran to a decent level under the guidance of John Gosden and hopefully, Robert Halvin can guide Byzantine Empire home here at Sandown. 

16:10 Sat 13 June 2020 Newbury

Cosa Orga is another who is on last chance saloon here after another no show last timeout. One positive thing is this looks a slightly easier race than the Golden Horn colt contested at Yarmouth the last timeout when having his first run for new trainer William Haggas. I will have a minimal stake and hope for the best for a place at least. 

15:15 Sun 14 June 2020 Newmarket 

Nice days racing on Sunday and my next two trackers I guess will be short so no bets but two I've been looking forward to seeing for a good while now and hope they both run well. Althiqa made a favourable impression when making her debut at Thirsk in April last year. The Dark Angel Charlie Appleby runner has had wind surgery and hasn't been seen since her winning the fillies Maiden, hopefully, Althiqa can win here and go onto better things if her long absence isn't a problem and she has no issues.  

17:00 Sun 14 June 2020 Newmarket 

Any regular readers of the post will know I have waited a while for Do You Love Me to run for Karl Burke and owners Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited. The well-thought-of Galileo filly makes her debut in what looks a tough little contest but hopefully, she can do herself justice first time out here. Thanks for reading and stay safe.
