Monday's 2yo Horse Racing (24th July)

Had a few trackers on Saturday so here's an update. 

Doncaster 18.45

Queen's Guard: Michael Bells Havana Grey filly opened up 9/4 backed into 2/1 fav. Slowly away and travelled nicely until fading quickly to finish fourth. Betting should be the key and I am hopeful she has more to come.

Snafiya won pretty well for the Alice Haynes yard at 9/4.

Haydock 19:30 

Varden: Kevin Ryan colt was a 10/1 shot. Got pinballed at the start, kept on the same pace but couldn't trouble the leaders.

Newbury 13.15

Savvy Kingdom: I was pretty keen on the Simon Woods colt, opened 3s and went out to fours.

Looked to be going well but faded quickly, disappointing.

Newbury 16:10

Free Nation: Opened 3s out to 7/2. Thought the Siyouni colt would run well but finished ninth in another disappointing run.

Mr Wonderful: Had this down as a value bet when 12s the night before, at the golf all day so surprised to see backed into 3/1. Led for a bit but faded, Each way bet so can't grumble.

14:46 Ripon

Tropical Air and Mirroring both poor.


Few trackers in this that could be worth following.

Airman: Richard Fahey 25,000 euro purchase. Dam is related to Long Tradition who was a nice middle distance runner for Saeed Bin Suroor. Well-regarded and one to watch. 

Barnaby: Kevin Ryan Soldier's Call colt. Finished last in a class 2 race at York on debut back in May, was 28/1 that day. A 50,000 gns purchase. One interesting fact is another horse of Mrs Angie Baileys called Dark Moon Rising followed a simmer path as this, unplaced on debut in a class 2 at York in May then wasn't seen until Beverley in July when supported and winning, might be nothing but any support a positive here.

Tan Rapido: Charlie Fellows has a few nice 2yos this season and this Bated Breath colt could be another. Pretty easy to back on debut going off 16/1. Settled behind the leaders and travelled well until Markakol just got the better of him. Promising type and hopefully up to this. 

Mecca's Daughter: Nice looking Dods filly who finished fourth here last timeout. Another who has a race in her.

Conclusion: A few nice types here. Tan Rapido looks the likely winner but at 9/4 no price. I'm gonna try a speculative each way on Barnaby and hope some support comes or I'll know my fait. Doesn't get many winners over 10s so would have to be significant, plus the ground looks soft. Currently 16s I'll try to get a bit bigger and pray Barnaby is backed.
