Monday's 2YO Racing Tips (17th July)

Pretty awful day Saturday, I always find weekend racing tough. The race I previewed at Ascot went to the Roger Varian trained Al Musmak who beat the favourite Under The Sun. I noted Varian had a good record with newcomers at Ascot and so it proved, the drift was a negative for me and beat the stats. Romantic Samurai was poor and I'm puzzled who was backed into 9s and stayed on to finish fourth. Not the best day. 

Few trackers at Windsor, Monday.

17.40 Windsor

Trackers: Watch My Tracer, Balagh, Magic Light.

Watch My Tracer looks a nice type for George Scott winning fto then going on to finish a creditable seventh in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot. Has to lump top weight here but could be a cut above these. Balagh has been disappointing for Andrew Balding. Made his debut in a class 2 at Ascot back in May when finishing fourth to Maximum Impact. Ran green that day and still looked green and awkward when finishing down the field last timeout at Kempton, not surprised the hood has been fitted here. Opened up 20s and would need plenty of support to be fancied. Magic Light for Richard Hannon. One of the two fillies in the race. Never involved on debut and finished down the field. Couldn't be confident after that performance but an early price of 20s looks big.

Couple of newcomers worth noting.

Ever Driven for Tom Dascombe. Comes from a dam who has produced three winners already. Ever Given trained by Hugo Palmer won first timeout when Tom Dascombe trained him and went onto win the Goffs Premier Yearling Stakes at York.

Lady Bullet also won fto last year for Alice Haynes. Harmony Lil was trained by Dascombe and won fourth timeout, interestingly not fancied in debut so could be worth checking for market moves.

Red Chatan for Evans related to Chasanda also trained by Evans who won here on debut in 2019 at 25s. Very interesting and with Hollie Doyle up I've taken 20s and had a small speculative each way hoping he can grab a place. 

18.10 Windsor

Trackers: Piz Nair.

Only one tracker here. Piz Nair for George Scott. The Bated Breath colt made his debut here last month in what was a hot contest, the 9/1 shot led before fading the final 100 yards, wasn't given a hard time and should be in the mix here, been given a nice entry since. The early fav Crocus Time sets the standard but could be vulnerable to an improver. Another who ran well on debut is Ikhtiary for the Tom Clover team. Slowly away at Bath and playing catch up the Harry Angel colt was finishing well that day and with the extra distance should be thereabouts. The form looks decent with the fifth winning next timeout and the winner finishing third in the July Stakes. Around 9/2 and hoping I can grab an each way price. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
