12:00 Beverley: Olivia Brend for Gay Kelleway (17th July)

It’s been a quiet time of late, even with the amount of 2-year-old races it’s been hard trying to find any trackers to add to a post. A quick update on a few trackers that have run the past week or so. The Charlie Appleby trained Declaring Love is a horse I had been waiting a while for and had a host of top entries last year but a long layoff was a worry. I thought she ran a nice race to finish second but was no match for easy and impressive winner Stunning Beauty who quickened up nicely. Fast Emma was an eye-catcher a few weeks back but took a huge drift at Ripon on Tuesd
ay and the writing was on the wall a furlong to go when fading badly. I wrote about the Ralph Beckett trained Zoffarelli a few weeks back, but he was declared a non-runner that day, hopefully, a few eagle-eyed readers noticed the Zoffany colt entered at Windsor on Monday. I was surprised to see him a 25/1 shot but definitely outrun them odds when making a promising debut to finish second to Zammani and should come on plenty for that run.

A couple of trackers in this one first is Beechwood Donna who is owned by Ontoawinner and Mrs. J Ryan who had a winner with Star Of Emaraaty recently. The Kevin Ryan trained Hot Streak filly has an eye-catching pedigree and I will definitely be checking the market as Kevin Ryan has a decent win strike rate with 2yos under 9/2 on debut. Olivia Brend is a Sir Prancealot filly trained by Gay Kelleway who was a cheap purchase at the 2019 Silver Yearling Sale when purchased for £ 3,500. Thrown in at the deep end in the Betway Empress Fillies Listed race at Newmarket Olivia Brend stayed in the race until class showed a furlong to go and was left behind, I would like to think this drop-in class plus a run under her belt she will be more competitive here.

I was looking forward to Frankenstella last timeout and was hoping for a good run at Wolverhampton but looked a bit one-paced and disappointing, to be honest. The 480,000 euro purchase takes a significant step up in distance here and needs to show a lot more for the John Quinn team.

Future King is a Dark Angel colt for Saaed Bin Suroor who costs 300,000 gns as a yearling. Dam Relation Alexander is a half-sister to the talented Flaming Spear who won the first timeout as a 2-year-old. Looking at the stats Saaed has a good first timeout record with 3-year-olds. He won’t have it all his own way though with the Wiliam Haggas trained Cold Front hoping to break his duck after finishing second three times in his career so far. The form looks pretty good, to be honest after when finishing behind another Godolphin horse Man Of Promise the last timeout. 

Thanks for reading and stay safe.
