Thursday's Two-Year-Old (2yo) Racing Update (26th August)

At first glance, my trackers in my last post, looked pretty disappointing. However, I’m hoping a few who finished down the field will improve for their second start and even better price. 

The first tracker was Sense Of Duty who obliged at odds of 2/9. 

Let’s move on. 

I had two trackers in the first at Salisbury. Firstly, Dark Swansong who opened up around 7/2 the night before. It left me with a dilemma as I wanted an each way price. Before I made my mind up he'd been supported into 11/4. In the end, the Clive Cox colt went off at 15/8. No bet for me. Dark Swansong ran a decent race finishing second to Hierarchy, who made it tow out of two wins and looks a nice type. 

My second tracker in this race was the Roger Varian trained Leuven Power who took a walk in the market. I was pretty sure today wouldn’t be the day. I will watch the betting next start. Leuven Power was slowly away and never involved. Perhaps one not to give up on just yet. 

Another worth remembering is the John Gosden trained Delphinus who looked to be finding her feet late on.

A couple of interesting trackers in this one as the O’Brien’s take each other on with potentially two nice fillies. Aidan runs the Galileo filly History who cost a cool 2,800,000 gns at the October Sales. History made her debut at the beginning of the month and made a good impression finishing second to Cairde Go Deo who looks a nice type herself. History is sure to come on plenty here but I will take a shot at the Joseph O’Brien filly Awesome Wonder if I can get an each way price, been supported from 13/2 into 5s at the time of writing. Awesome Wonder cost 140,000 euros at the Orby Sales and also made a nice debut when staying on fifth at Naas at the start of the month. It’s definitely not just between these two with other smart newcomers entering the mix.

A Bryan Smart newcomer to note is Emperor Caradoc. Often, newcomers are sometimes worth watching on debut. 

14:00 Ffos Las 26 Aug 2021 

Two trackers again here and one is the odds on favourite for trainer Richard Hughes. Ring Of Beara ran a cracker at Goodwood last month when finishing second to Imperial Fighter at Goodwood, that looks decent form so any improvement should see the Wootton Bassett colt involved at the finish. My next tracker actually ran in the same race and will have to take a giant step forward here. The Mick Channon trained Bazalgette needs to improve but I will chance a very small speculative each way at 25s and hope he can sneak a place. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
