Saturday’s 2yo Thougths (12th June)

Another late post. 

Hopefully, as they say, better late than never. 

1:55 Bath – 

Doesn’t look the most competitive race. Symphony Perfect is held in some regard by Hannon and a progressive type. No price but should take some beating. Lucky Shake was in a significant betting guide on her last start. Crisford’s charge had a wide draw and suffered by doing a little too much to get to the lead. To be fair it was a dismal effort and although interested in seeing how this daughter of Zelzal goes I’ll be watching this race with my hand in my pocket. 

3:55 Chester – 

A competitive-looking race. Robjon is a decent horse who ran well under a penalty. He has that burden today but a sturdy type who runs to the line. You always worry a horse will be unsuited by this turning course so that’s something to consider. War Brave run much better over course and distance after disappointing on debut at Leicester. David Loughnane’s two-year-olds are in form and this compact gelding has claims. He has proven he handles this course which is a positive. Whether he is quite as good as Robjon only time will tell. Roman Dragon is a speedster and may fair better on this faster ground. A watching brief. 

4:15 York – 

This Class 3 race should have some strength and depth. Worth keeping an eye on these on future starts. I like Bosh, trained by Richard Hannon, who ran well on debut and should be suited by this step up in distance. The bookies aren’t giving much away. Claim The Stars ran well on debut when looking inexperienced but running well. That was a gritty race and this horse has ability. Likely to lead, this colt will lead and could hold on. There doesn’t look much value going on here. I would fancy Bosh each-way if odds allow but I doubt that will happen.
