Wednesday's 2YO Racing Tips

2:00 Catterick - 

Just the one entrant here, although the betting suggests this is a two-horse race. Both look fair sorts. Scott Dixon's Deia Glory has run four times and a speester. This bay daughter of Khyllachy nearly sprang a 50/1 shock when leading for most in the Hilary Needler Trophy Conditions Stakes. She was caught in the dying strides. On place, this March foal was a long way down the field in the Queen Mary Stakes Group 2 at Royal Ascot. Considering she led for most and beaten nine lengths it wasn't a bad effort. Not much of a price so a watching brief. 

2:40 Lingfield - 

Quite an interesting race. Chonburi has a significant entry although looks limited compared to the better types trained by Richard Hannon. Most interesting is Isaac Queen trained by Archie Watson. This bay daughter of War Command cost 42,000 euros. Watson has a few talents in his string and this bay filly is one of five entered for the Lowther Stakes Group 2. The number of entrants could slightly dilute the level although she is well fancied in the market and from a low draw is respected.
