The two-year-old season is warming up nicely. Just seen the Gimcrack Stakes (Group 2) at York and it's great to see Kevin Ryan win with Emaraaty Ana.
Being a specialist in two-year-old horse racing, I have four dark horses to make the most of any bet or wagers if you so choose.

Wings Of Time:
Godolphin is always a power of strength with an impressive string of horses. That's why you need to take note when they detail one of their two-year-old talents. This son of Invincible Spirit is out of a twice-winning mare, who was successful at Listed class and competed up to Group 1. This bay colt will be making his debut before the end of the season and worth pencilling in your mythical notepad.
Won well the second start.
If the expectations of Wings Of Time are high then this son of Dubawi could be exceptional. The mare raced once but this two-year-old is definitely worth a bet on debut. Even without knowing where he will run I am confident he will start favourite. Why? Because his reputation will precede him. Also, the dogs have been barking on Newmarket gallops. So what else have we got to say about this talent? Well, this March foal holds three significant entries for top two-year-old races here and in Ireland. If this horse doesn't win a race I will be very surprised.
Won on debut.
I'm quite taken with this bay colt, who is a son of Dubawi. Readers may remember the mare called Pimpernel who won on debut when trained by the disgraced Mahmood Al Zarooni. She won four from eleven starts including a Listed race. A couple of raced in Meydan. She won almost £100,000 in total prize earnings. Appleby has this colt entered for a couple of big races including the Royal Lodge Stakes (Group 2). This two-year-old had an entry for the National Stakes (Group 1) so been held in some regard since early season.
This chestnut filly is a daughter of Dubawi is homebred out of a truly talented mare named Hibaayeb who was trained by Saeed bin Suroor. She raced fourteen times achieving four wins, two seconds and four thirds. Her two-year-old career was with Clive Brittain who won the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. This was her first victory in the formative season although a runner-up spot in the May Hill Stakes (Group 2) proved ample ability. Bin Suroor took charge at three. She ran well on a number of occasions and a Grade 1 victory at Hollywood Park, USA saw her win $93K. Far from disgraced next start when placed eighth although beaten less than three lengths in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (Grade 1). In total, Hibaayeb won over £400,000 in prize money. If taking after mother or father Ophelia's Dream will be a winner in waiting.
