Friday's 2YO Racing Update

Not a great deal of time so I will simple detail the significantly-entered juveniles for Friday's four races. 

2:50 Lingfield - 

An EBF Novice Stakes over 4f 217y on good to firm going. 

Ed Walker has a nice prospect with On The Stage. Interesting that Dark Panther has been noted by the trainer. This Irish-bred son of Dandyman was relatively fancied on debut at Brighton but ran horrendously. A huge price today. Sometimes the worse they look on debut the better they go second start. Needs a leap of faith. 

5:10 Nottingham - 

A Fillies' Novice Median Auction Stakes over 5f 8y on good going. 

No significant entrants. 

5:50 Ripon -

Novice Auction Stakes over 5f on good going. 

Richard Hughes' charge is the only significantly entered two-year-old in this race. Wolf Hunter showed zilch on debut at Bath when trailing home in the mud. This son of Sir Prancealot ruined his chance when returning to Kempton in what looked to be a fairly hot race. He was keen and ran wide on the bend which all but ruined any chance of winning. However, this chestnut colt made eye-catching progress in the closing furlong suggesting he is capable of much better. This juvenile doesn't look the easiest horse to ride and temperamental which is never good news. Could go well but you are taking a gamble whether he settles or not. Slightly off putting.   

6:00 Ascot - 

An EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over 5f on good to firm going. 

No significantly entered juveniles.
