I will try to keep this as brief as possible.
Four two-year-olds races:
1:00 Nottingham –
Looks a battle of the favourite with Love De Vega well expereinced against the Godolphin colt King’s Guard. I can’t see much value going on with both of these. Canmore would have claims if well backed and may be a horse with a touch of value at 8 on the exchanges. However, this horse would need to be a rare talent to beat Love De Vega on debut and although possible probably unlikely.
1:15 Newbury –
A competitive race. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Sovereign Prince run well today after disappointing on debut behind Bethersden Boy who has a penalty after a nice victory at Newmarket. A good looking colt. Harrow may have each-way claims if priced in single figures. Single Minded could have a fighting chance at giant odds. American Star cost a lot of money at the breeze-up sales and is well owned and trained. Ed Walker has been in flying form with his two-year-olds and although they don’t usually win on debut this colt may have something in its favour. All in all a tricky looking race.
6:00 Haydock –
Tardis has very good claims here but will be price to chance unless drifting markedly in the betting.
7:00 Haydock –
A couple of well respected two-year-olds here with King Of Gold and I’m A Gambler who clashed at Great Yarmouth. You would imagine Tate’s would win but it could be sod’s law something else pops up to ruin such thoughts. Definitely no value to me win or lose. It will be interesting to see if Mr Professor runs better today at big odds. A good looking horse who is well owned and trained and probably disappointed when favourite at Catterick due to testing going. A tricky looking race where the favourite are priced to chance and taking a punt on others is chancing your arm.
