Saturday's 2yo Racing News (21st November)

Just three maidens today - I've given up on nursery races. 

The main race of interest is the 6:30 Wolverhampton

Interesting to see how Beloved gets on today after a fair debut effort at Doncaster over one mile on soft ground. This daughter of Frankel was steady in the market that day (15/2) and a touch keen in the early stages before finishing sixth beaten five-and-a-half lengths. Ed Walker has been in decent form with his juveniles this season and, in general, they are much better prospects on their second start. The key factor for Beloved today, in my opinion, is the betting. Very few of the stable's two-year-olds win on their second start when priced in double figures and this would be a weakness if a big drifter in the betting (seen recently with Girl From Ipanema) and failed to shine. 

Beloved has very good each-way claims if priced 13/2 & less sp. 

The major opponents include Charlie Appleby's Mawenzi, who is a well-bred daughter of Dudawi out of an unraced mare. The stable have a very good strike rate when starting favourite and this yard never lacks for strength or depth in the juvenile ranks. 

Similarly John Gosden is a trainer who can unveil a talented two-year-old on debut and Kusnacht, in the ownership of Newsells Park Stud, has claims if priced 13/2 & less sp. The chances of winning on debut when outside this betting guide are much less and should be taken note. 

Other hopes, if backed, include Divine Magic, Gwenhwyvar & Sisu. 

My focus is Beloved is in the best betting guide. However, if weak I will take a watching brief. 

Other maidens on the day include:

1:45 Lingfield 

6:00 Wolverhampton
