With the turf concluded the 2yo racing can seem a little quiet at times but Saturday featured a few decent juveniles. I posted on Sky Equine.
The 7:45 Wolverhampton was interesting. Three or four of the runners caught the eye and worthy of respect in future races.
The winner, Two Weeks won in gutsy style. This daughter of Mayson was fancied in the betting when making her debut at Newbury back in August when finishing fifth. She had received a couple of significant entries which subscribers of the excellence Group Horse had noted. Well, such was the strength of this race, Clive Cox's charge opened at 11/1 and backed to 8/1. A front-running performance holding the late challenge of Rizzle Dizzle who was expected to go well by Karl Burke.
Burke's good-looking daughter of Foxwedge will be winning soon. John Dance has a number of talented juveniles in training via numerous handlers but an owner who has his finger on the pulse.
Another horse from this race who really deserves a sentence or two is Roger Varian's Sooda. Prince Fasal's home-bred, an Irish-bred daughter of Street Cry was well backed but struggled to be competitive after a slow start. However, we can detail that this March foal is one of the best juveniles in the stable and expect a big run second start.
Finally, getting to the 1:30 Wolverhampton -
I'm writing this post before any betting so not ideal. I'm not crazy on Handicaps and I won't be betting here but thought Sylvester Kirk's Sauchiehall Street. Rated just 59 on official rating we are talking about a poor horse in a poor race. However, this bay gelding has won a race and competitive at this grade. He was running on in style when beaten favourite at Kempton. He ran out of real estate and this step up in distance will benefit.
