Saturday's 2YO Racing Tips (16th June)

2:10 Chester - 

A quick look at these. Marie's Diamond won on debut and competed in the Woodcote Stakes. He led the field for most but paid the price in the final furlong when the wheels fell off. Mark Johnston has given this colt an entry for the Gain Railway Stakes (Group 2), Ireland. Connection will be needing a win here to entertain those lofty thoughts. A win penalty and wide draw will be such a test. 

Dark Thunder wasn't disgraced in the Lily Agnes Stakes and that experience round this turning course is valuable. 

Tom Dascombe fields stablemate Five Helmets who was entered for the Lily Agnes Stakes but didn't take the engagement. He's an attractive horse but needs to progress. 

In addition, Gabriel The Wire has been given a Class 2 entry. 

3:30 Bath - 

Happy Harmony ran much too fast at Musselburgh and tired in the closing stages. o be fair, Richard Hannon's filly hung on well as it was a good race. If settling better could go well here. 

Hannon is represented by Mersey who has run well enough on both starts. 

The Greyvtrain has also received entries. Although a speedy sort is exposed and needs a drop in grade or try on the all-weather.  

4:40 York -

Decent prize money and few horses with some hope of progressing. Jfoul has run well on debut over course. Looked a fair race and should improve for that first start. 

Kevin Ryan does well at this course and Rathbone did little wrong on debut over course and distance.  One of three horses entered for the Gain Railways Stakes (Group 2), Ireland. A talented two-year-old. 

Pink Flamingo was all the rage on debut but couldn't defy the challenge of Cocoabala who shouldered a win penalty. Comes out pretty quick. Steps up half a furlong although time-wise there may not be too much difference.  

6:10 Leicester - 

Richard Hannon's Leoube was very slow away on debut at York. Had no chance thereafter. This daughter of Kodiac is a fair-looking type who showed up much better next time at Windsor when big odds. Steps up a furlong. 

Not the most conclusive post but very busy and tired.
