Sunday's 2yo Racing (7th August)

2:20 Leicester - 

Supreme King ran well on both start and was a high stat horse last time out when second. I like Hannon when he sends horses to Leicester. No value so will be watching but should go well. Berkshire Phantom was similarly a high stat horse sto when running well. I think we both bet on him last time and traveled very well and unlucky to be bump into a talented horse. Another who will go well but not really value especially with Hannon's looking a decent opponent. Interesting that Sir Michael Stoute has a few 2yos racing these last few weeks and most have gone very well. He can be hit and miss with his debutantes but has fair place claims at 9/2 and less. The Queen has done exceptionally well with her 2yos this season so Circle Of Fire is of interest and Stoute does well at the course. He is a trainer who can win any race if he sends out a quality horse but on balance you would consider those with experience are the ones to beat. An interesting horse though. 

Conclusion: Looks out of the three horses. A good battle between the two favourites and Sir Michael Stoute could be a danger. 

2:40 Windsor - 

A decent sized field for this banded race. Sassy Bell hails from a stable that are going well. By all accounts this is a drop in class. Looks a fair horse who will run to the line. A wide draw which isn't ideal but experience will see her sit handy. No real value at the odds. Has fair stats too but under priced on those. Should take some beating but a horse to either watch or take on. Song Of Success will improve for this step up to 6f. Has fair stats. Tessa has raced five times and not tasted victory yet. This is always a concern and even though shown some ability is a horse best taken on. Ralph Becket can win with debutantes almost at any price. A horse to respect. Henry Candy fields Sinful who doesn't have very good stats unless 7/1 and less sp. In general, a trainer I would give a miss with debutantes (much better sto). 

Conclusion: A tricky race. I can't see much value at the top of the market and the rest have ifs and buts. 

4:10 Windsor - 

A smaller field. Dubai Mile was favourite on debut at Redcar and ran ok without looking brilliant. The form of that race doesn't look anything beyond average. May run better stepped up in distance. Imperial Dream ran well on debut considering he travelled so well over 6f should sit prominently today and probably breeze along and see what's happening in the last furlong or so. Has fair stats. Not much value with the two favourites. Marco Botti's Maximilian Caesar won well at Yarmouth, in something of an egg and spoon race. A nice looking horse who is capable of going well with a penalty. Andrew Balding can go well at Windsor and his string have been in excellent form all year so see how Relentless Voyager goes. Has a fair number of debut winners in August and fair ew stats if 10/1 and less sp. Highland Flyer isn't known for too many debut winner but a well owned horse and may have a hope if seriously backed to 10/1 and less sp. 

Conclusion: Looks a tricky race. Imperial Dream looks the type to travel well but no price. I can't see much value.

4:15 Haydock - A field of debutantes. Charyn has a group entry, well bred, cost a lot of money and well owned. Fair stats if 9/2 and less sp. A live chance. Katai is another horse held in some regard. Has decent stats at 9/2 and less. Karl Burke has an impressive string of two-year-olds and Road To The East has something of a reputation and another horse I would respect. These three at the head of the betting make for a competitive race let alone anyone else turning up. Ed Bethell's Yorkshire has a group entry and a 100,000g purchase. 

Conclusion: A tough race with some well-regarded horses. I'd be surprised if it isn't out of these four and the betting may help pick between the lines. I would have to take a watching brief.
