1:30 Windsor: It Pays to be a Good Listener (19th October)

Just taking a quick look at Monday's two-year-old races. 

I notice the Visit attheraces.com Novice Median Auction Stakes (Class5) (2yo) over 5f (5f 21y) on soft going. 

Scanning down the 8-strong field. 

Good Listener, trained by Richard Hannon, caught the eye. This bay colt, a son of Mehmas, out of an unraced mare, is held in pretty high regard by the stable and owner Mrs Fitri Hay (she's no mug). 

This bay colt was purchased by Peter & Ross Doyle for £50,000 at the yearling sales. 

There was a lot to like about this colt's debut effort at York when finishing third at odds of 10/1. 

Good Listener was quite keen in the early stages but travelled with real purpose before tiring in the closing furlong behind Showalong, who is a fair two-year-old for Tim Easterby. 

It's worth noting that Good Listener had been earmarked for a Listed race, so this race type looks ideal. 

The Racing Post details the tissue prices (which I don't like assessing horses) and they have this colt priced at 15/8f. I see some lucky devil (if you can believe it) got 5/1 for a few quid on Betfair. I'm not sure if some of these early bets are even real!

Anyway, I will be looking forward to seeing what the betting looks like for this horse, and if the bookies are at all generous this looks a fine opportunity. 

It would be unbelievable if this horse was priced each way odds, as that would be an absolute steal. 

It's more likely to start odds on. 

One of the more interesting races and horses.
