Tuesday's Thoughts

2:20 Yarmouth
Mohedian Lady, a daughter of Hurricane Run who cost 240,000gns, sets the standard for this fillies' maiden over a mile on soft ground. As would be expected for such a huge sum of money, Bell's two-year-old is a lovely looking horse with a lot of size and scope. She has run well on both starts and clearly better at a mile than 7f. There is a lot to like about Mohedian Lady but she wouldn't want this race to turn into a tactical affair. On both starts there have been moments within each race where she has struggled to go the pace and doesn't possess a noticeable turn of foot, which could be a weakness today. Spencer will probably make this a fair run race as she is an out and out galloper. There is little doubt connections will be looking for a win today and this youngster has a favourite's chance but this filly does need to be ridden to her strengths and may falter if not. A promising two-year-old but one to take care with at a short price. Moonsail ran quite well on debut, behind the easy winner, Umseyat. Al Zarooni's filly plugged on with some determination at the finish and looks capable of winning a race. The third, Pandorica, was held by a few lengths and that has a basic standard of ability. Moonsail has a fighting chance, although not the easiest to assess at present. John Gosden must be respected with his juveniles and Hunza Dancer is worth noting, especially if strong in the betting. As this race has been split into two divisions, it could be the case this two-year-old is second or even third string (as Fortunateencounter is a non runner) and be better for the run. (The betting will be the best guide to this fillies chance.) Sir Michael Stoute's two-year-olds rarely win on debut if priced over 13/2 and so the betting will indicate if Piece D'Or is fit and ready. One of the more interesting runners is Makheelah. Clive Brittain's representative has been off course since early June and ran well on debut. Clearly there must have been a problem but what is eye catching is that this daughter of Dansili has been entered for a Listed race, which could be an encouraging sign, and may go well at a price.

2:30 Lingfield
A restricted auction race. Sylas Ings a battling type but, as seen on his last two starts, struggles to get 7f. On this turning track, which is run in a quicker time than Salisbury, he could have every chance at the furlong pole but still may tire at the finish.
