Racing Summary
April 14th: Newmarket
5f M (C&G)
  • Sold for average price at Doncaster St Leger sales.
  • Reviewed at the sales and slightly small but notably heavily built. Rather short and not a particularly athletic mover. Needed to grow and develop to be able to use the strength and build he has. Rated 66 with an average chance of being a competitive 2yo at his level.
  • By good sprint sire who can get early runners but better types tend to have some size and develop through season.
  • Dam had a mixed pedigree and showed reasonable form over 6-8f on the flat before being tried over hurdles.
  • Trainer in his second season training after return from Hong Kong. Previously had a very good record with 2yos and notable for having runners fit and competent on debut.
  • In 2004 the earliest debuts competed well but none won (including those that were backed). He said he had been caught out by the gallops at Newmarket compared to Manton (where he trained before going to Hong Kong) and did not have those early debuts fit enough. The earliest debut runners were 80+ rated winners later in the season. 
  • Trainer has had one owner bred runner in 2005 who was 5th at this meeting looking competent but not good enough to compete with the better fillies.
  • In summary the pedigree and sales review of a (just) 70+ sprint 2yo if he develops well. Had the build to be a little better if he developed well and this trainer is exactly the right type to get him rated higher with racing if anyone can. However, on evidence since he returned he has not been running his best types with his earliest debuts and they are not 'wound-up'.  Profile [68]
  • April 14th: Newmarket
    Post Race
  • Trainer's second runner of the season and gave a similar performance to Adeje Park yesterday. Broke slightly right-handed but closely tracked the pace makers and travelled ok. He looked the heavily built and strong type that sales review showed. However, sales review had suggested he lacked some athleticism and he was outpaced here as the pace quickened despite travelling well enough. At least part of this seemed to be because he does not really lengthen his stride and continued with his slightly shorter action (compared to Puskas for example). 
  • Trainer's first runners in 2005 have shown similar performances to 2004 being competent without threatening to win nor looking above average. This runner's strength and his early start will allow the trainer to develop him through the season so he should rate 75+ at some point but probably not above average. In a race where a number of runners received support he went from 5/1 to 4/1. Estimate [65]
  • June 9th: Yarmouth
    6f Novice
  • Steps up to 6f after nearly two months off and the trainer has only had one runner in the interim from three early debuts in three days.
  • Trainer had a runner in the 6f race at this meeting in 2004 in his first season back in Britain. He ran two 2yos on debut in early April in that year and then had a break until late May and introduced some better 2yos from this week onwards.
  • In 2005 he has shown a similar pattern with three debut runs from April 13-15th (one of these won STO on May 2nd) and then a break until one of those early debuts - Hunter Street - runs here. 
  • The June runners in 2004 all competed quite well with several places but no winner. He then got into strong form in July with a run of 7 wins from ten runs from July 1st. He said in interview that he felt he had his early runners in 2004 less fit than he thought they would be because the Newmarket gallops were less stiff than the ones he had used at Manton (where he trained before leaving for Hong Kong). Therefore it will be interesting to see how his 2yos perform in June this year and whether the 'form wave' starts a little earlier.
  • In 2004 the two early debut runners returned after 3 & 4 month breaks and competed strongly STO (a win and a second).
  • In summary very interesting to see how he performs after the break as a indicator of the trainer's method in 2005. His debut form is ordinary and probably slightly overrated and the lack of athleticism is a niggle. On the plus side his trainer seems able to get all sorts of 2yos rated 80+ that others wouldn't. Solid improvement but not one to back at a shorter SP.  Estimate [72]
  • June 9th: Yarmouth
    Post Race
  • Opened 15/8f with a debut filly from E Dunlop (who had been WD previously). Support to 6/4f before she was withdrawn at post (again). Looked much more professional and travelled well with a solid pace. Went on from inside 2f out and went clear. Again showed a fastish but slightly scratchy action if front. Not tested here to beat Soft Gold who already has his limits as a 50s rater astablished.
