The 2019 Flat turf season is underway.
Although slower than many age groups to get to full speed, the two-year-old (2yo) racing is starting to pick up and already we have seen a few talented juveniles who could well be heading to the Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) at Royal Ascot 2019.
Let's take a brief look at a few exciting 2yo prospects who made a winning debut and look hot properties.
Lady Kermit -
Archie Watson has proven himself to be a real star trainer when it comes to two-year-olds and Lady Kermit is a filly who will be heading to Royal Ascot 2019. She trounced the opposition on debut at Kempton when starting a short-priced favourite. Then made the most of her experience to win a Class 2 race at Newcastle. A blistering start had rivals on the back foot. She carried a win penalty that day, which is an example of a horse with some quality. She isn't the biggest horse but a very speedy type who likes a fast five-furlongs.
Chasing Dreams -
Charlie Appleby knows a talented 2yo when he sees one and Chasing Dreams has got to be a leading chance for Royal Ascot after a sublime debut at Newmarket. The 4/9 favourite stormed clear of the opposition. The second that day has won since. This daughter of Starspangledbanner cost 750,000 guineas at the yearling sales. Connections will be excited to see how she goes next start. I wouldn't want to bet against her.
Lady Pauline -
Some times you have to look further afield to find a star two-year-old. Who better to focus your attention than Wesley Ward. You know this American trainer only brings quality juveniles from across the pond because they have one racecourse on their horizon. It doesn't take much working out, it's Royal Ascot. Who could forget the astounding win of Lady Aurelia (pictured) when she won the Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) at Royal Ascot by an ''impressive'' seven lengths. Lady Pauline is following a similar route as she won her debut at Keeneland over four-and-a-half furlongs by an incredible nine-and-three-quarter length. This chestnut daughter of Munnings is a half-sister to Lady Aurelia. A very exciting prospect who could well start favourite in this year's Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2).
Three super talented fillies you cannot afford to miss.
