Saturday's Thoughts

A slight change to the blog posting today with general thoughts about a few two-year-olds.

1:45 Thirsk

Ezzles is taken to run much better after being too inexperienced on debut. Paul Cole Racing said: 'He was extremely green at Sandown, but was up against a Hannon odds-on shot, who won very nicely. We think he will really come on in time and we like him a lot.' Cole has good statistics at Thirsk and this attractive colt should go well today.

2:10 Newmarket

Handicaps are never the easiest of races to appreciate but Bay Of Fires has been in good form of late and one of the more likelier types for this at a price.

2:20 Thirsk

Barry Hills has his juveniles in fine form and Face The Problem is a talented colt with speed to burn. Under top weight of 9-9 it will be interesting to see if this son of Johannesburg can win this and go on to compete in the Gimcrack (Group 2).

3:55 Newmarket

Theyskens' Theory has been very well backed on the exchanges and with the Meehan two-year-olds coming to form a much improved performance should be seen over this 7f. This American-bred filly,an entrant for the Fillies' mile (Group 1), was slow away on debut and most likely needed the run. With plenty of scope, it would seem that connections are expecting a classier performance this afternoon.

7:55 Lingfield

Dubai Affair ran well over 6f at Salisbury last time from a wide draw and showed good speed before tiring in the final furlong. That was a decent race and over 5f this well-bred filly - and daughter of Palace Affair - has a fighting chance against the favourite Foghorn Leghorn.

Tips:

Comment: 'A statistical bet which usually go well but a hopeless performance from Cole's juvenile. Clearly the stable think something of this two-year-old and time may tell he is capable of better. Certainly more experience is needed and this speedy 5f just didn't suit.'

3:55 Newmarket -Theyskens' Theory 1PTEW 9/2 1st

Comment: 'There was a lot of confidence behind this horse today and no wonder as Meehan's filly won in 'impressive' style.'
