Brocklesby Stakes

The Two-year-old season gets into swing with the Brocklesby Stakes at 4:10 Doncaster. Soft ground isn't ideal for these debutantes. 

Learn about the History of the Brocklesby Stakes (including 2019 update)

A few regulars include Bill Turner, who fields Arthur's  Spirit. The Brocklesby has been a great race for the stable over the years and often targeted with their best juvenile. 

Other trainers who do well with juveniles entered for this race include: Richard Fahey who races Wasntexpectingthat.  

One of the more expensive horses is Declan Carroll's Langholm who cost 100,000euros. This talented trainer did well last season with his ill-fate Santry who was Group class. 

Mick Channon fields Izzer. This stable win very few races with debutantes priced over 8/1 so unless backed is best watched. 

Interesting to see John Quinn with an early Brocklesby horse with Carey Street. A stable that can go well first start and have trained a number of smart juveniles over the years. 

Best to take a watching brief.
