Wednesday 2YO Racing Tips

Lady Aurelia - Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) Winner 2017
1:40 Hamilton - 

Quite a restricted race type which favours horses with race experience. Usain Bolt ran well on debut over five furlongs as if needing the run and most likely an extra furlong. He won next start when stepping up to six furlongs at Newmarket. Then dipping his toe into a tough Woodcote Stakes at Epsom. This son of Casamento was no challenger to the easy winner but plugged on to take second place. Has to defy a win penalty and dropping back to the minimum trip. Hamilton is a stiff course, and he may not be found wanting for pace, but it could be the case he is. Not sure if I would jump in at short odds because if outpaced mid race will be much bigger odds on the exchanges. 

2:10 Hamilton - 

Kevin Ryan is a calculated trainer and not one to give significant entries for the fun of it. Sense Of Belonging started his racing career in a valuable Maiden Stakes over 6f at York. He ran on well, after taking a keen hold, and finished third. This is the only juvenile Ryan has given a Phoenix Stakes (Group 1) entry. Unless there is a real surprise package, should be hard to beat at odds-on. 

2:30 Royal Ascot - 

Highlight of the day the Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2).
