Racing Summary
20 Apr Klynch was Brian Meehan's first 2yo runner of the season and his debut runners can be variable although the better ones usually show some ability and place and occasionally win this early in the year. He tends to run his better ones at Newmarket and used to start his best early sprinters at the Craven Meeting. With the colts' maiden at the meeting history he would have had to run Klynch in the conditions race at that course and clearly didn't think he was up to it. He has run newcomers in that race in recent years with Major Eazy & Deadshot Keen (both for the Comic Strip Heroes owners) both making the first 4 on the way to being dual winners during the season. 
  • He ran the seller winner Rough Rock in the race last year behind Winker Watson and on physical grounds Klynch looked better than that and more a 75+ sprinter. But he was too inexperienced to run well and gave trouble loading into the stalls and didn't appear to handle the ground after blowing the start. He may run again quickly having been declared to run at Windsor two days later unless that was a mistake.
  • 21 Apr Klynch is interesting and is also covered in the 20th April week's review. He made his debut only 3 days ago on holding ground at Newbury. On looks he seemed a solid 75-85 sprinter and better than the seller winner Rough Rocks that Meehan ran for the same owners in the Newbury race in 2007. He was too wound up (2 handlers, gave trouble loading) to show his best and didn't appear to go on the ground at all and was left behind off a moderate pace. The fact he's running so quickly could be for a good reason - Meehan thinks he didn't get the chance to show what he's capable of a Newbury and worth another go here. Or, it could be for a negative reason in that he's another seller type like Rough Rocks and therefore expendable. The trainer, like Mick Channon, can be ruthless with these sorts and get rid of them. The fact that Robert Havlin is booked doesn't suggest the senior jockeys were anxious to get on him (nothing against Havlin as a rider, just fashionablity). 
  • But, he is a better type physically than Rough Rocks and ought to be a solid maiden winner. You can't be sure what you will get here because of the muffed debut so the profile is low but if he runs to his potential it wouldn't be a surprise to see him compete well.
  • 23 Apr Which brings us to dear old Klutz, err.., Klynch. Not without ability but a bit of a daft lad at present. He's followed the same route for the trainer/owner combination as Rough Rock did in 2007. He managed a fourth, in a Windsor maiden, in three goes before struggling in nurseries off OR72. Switched to a seller and equipped with blinkers he ironed out seller field at Yarmouth (home of the juvenile seller). That got him sold for a too high 28,600 guineas at the post race auction (and had the Yarmouth management pretty pleased no doubt with their cut). Up to OR75 and uncompetitive in three later runs for a new trainer.
  • Now, Klynch was fourth here in his Windsor maiden having sat in 7th at halfway and making some progress in centre field when asked. He didn't look proficient doing this and not entirely in control of his movement but he did it, and he was chasing three solid types in front of him. On physical grounds he's better than Rough Rock so, by comparison, ought to prove a better prospect. Not the seller route and Fire Sale for him.
