Poyle Meg (Windsor, RM Beckett, All Debuts). Trainer has been
less than effusive about her in stable tours noting she's a bit small.
James Doyle rides while Seb Sanders often rides the better ones.
Captainrisk (Yarmouth 2:45, M Botti, All Debuts). Trainer
being as selective as ever in even running 2yos with this just his fourth
representative of the season. The first runner was second on debut and
has won her next two races. The other two have looked limited fillies who
have made 4th on debut without looking up to winning open maidens on paddock
review. The first of those managed to place 3TO but in a weak Lingfield
fillies' race. Overall the message seems to be that the model of limited
runs and horses ready to compete close to their best FTO seems still to
hold. The first runner was a usable 2yo (his best 2yo runner in 2007 was
the first to run) and the next two have had to run because there's no point
waiting because they are just going to get further behind the average juvenile
through the season because they lack the scope to develop. What type is
Turn To Dreams (Windsor, PD Evans, Long Shot). Trainer was
3 from 12 with his first 12 debuts to April 30th and a good profit. He
is 0 from 12 since then with one place in a small field for the first of
the 'second twelve' on May 5th. This fits his usual methods of getting
his 2yos fit and ready for the start of the season and the early debuts
will include the usable ones. This one would have to have missed an early
debut for some identifiable reason not to be just another has-to-run-somewhere
JHM Gosden, June to August debuts. It's A Game (Windsor) & Teeky
(Yarmouth 3:15). Both are owner bred fillies for US owner George Strawbridge.
Jimmy Fortune is at Yarmouth and rides It's A Game a Daylami half-sister
to mostly 8f+ winners plus the 7-8f older Group winner Sleeping Indian
who didn't run until late in his 3yo season.
