Racing Summary
May 5th: Chepstow
5 Maiden
  • Made lowish to middling price at Tattersalls part 2 sales.
  • Reviewed at the sales and rated 61. Notably small and only medium build. Lacked any scope to develop but neat and deep in front.
  • Sire has an acceptable record with 2yos. Can get early 5f winners and has record is better in that area for having trainer M Channon supporting him. 
  • Dam was well bred and showed glimpses of better form over 8f in a short career. She has produced one moderate to average staying 2yo who sold for a similar price.
  • Younger trainer has varied his approach with 2yos 2002-4 and seemed to have settled for later season debuts and targeting STO runs for wins (unless useful+ Like Johnny Jumpup in 2004). 
  • This is an earlier season debut for him but he has already had two runners with 2yo types suggesting he has slightly changed his approach again.
  • In summary likely to be a 60-67 rated 2yo and probably to need 6f. A little below her best here although competent. Profile [50 + 5 = 55]
  • May 20th: Haydock
    5f Auction
  • 10/1 4th favourite at Chepstow. The first three were better types and got clear of the other runners with a good pace. More than 4 lengths off the pace at halfway and pressed to keep up. Plugged on for a volunteer 4th the wrong side of a gap from Montzando (who runs here).  Estimate [47]
  • Typical trainer debut and STO runs have shown moderate improvement in 2005. Limited to 60+ rating on sales review.  Profile [57 + 7 =64]
