Godolphin at the Double (24th July)

Darvel wins for Kevin Ryan on second start at Ayr racecourse
The racing is still coming thick and fast and at times it’s all too much as I try to watch every 2-year-old race, add data and look at the fixtures coming up while trying to spend time with the family and go to work but it’s worth it as I remember the dark days when we had none. Anyway enough rambling on, Just a quick update on a few bets this week. 

Darvel was a horse I had marked down in my eye-catcher post, the Kevin Ryan trained Dark Angel colt made a promising debut at Haydock back in June when given a nice introduction without threatening the first three home that day. 

I was hoping to have a nice bet and 9/4 looked alright to me but soon as I went to confirm my bet it changed to 6/4 and within a few short minutes odds on, so I decided against betting. 

See the full result here

It was nice to see Darvel win easily at Ayr and confirm that promise even though I missed out. 


We have to take the good with the bad at times and Perfect Sunrise was another eye-catcher for trainer James Tate, it was a tough race so no bet for me and this time I chose right as she looked awkward and finished down the field. 


I had a winning bet on Shrara who was having her second run for Ralph Beckett and won with a bit in hand at Chepstow, never underestimate how much a horse can improve the second run as Shrara was never involved on her debut at Windsor a few weeks before. 

Liberty Power had a nice entry as a 2-year-old and after disappointing again I’m sure this horse will pop up at a price one day but is becoming expensive for me to follow after backing the Tim Easterby colt the last two times. 

Previews:

I feel like I’m repeating myself as I say this each week but the weekend racing is tough especially the 2-year-olds, so I will be betting low stakes and with caution, I think monitoring and watching the replays for future reference is the best bet but for a bit of interest, I will have a small bet.

A couple of promising types who have already had one run plus some nice looking newcomers here. I will be hoping the Godolphin Frankel colt DHAHABI can stamp his name as a horse for the future here today. Dhahabi comes with a huge price tag but hey the horse doesn't know he was purchased for 3,100,000 gns. A half-brother to the smart 134 rated Golden Horn trained by John Gosden who never finished outside the top two in what was a phenomenal career. 

14:50 Newmarket 25 Jul 2020 

Another one for Godolphin here as DECLARING LOVE will hopefully break her maiden tag after a finishing second on her reappearance here two weeks ago. Considering the Dubawi filly had been off the course 400 plus days I was impressed how well she ran against what looked another nice filly for the boys in blue in the name of Stunning Beauty who looks a nice prospect for the year ahead. 

Eye-catcher:
