2:20 Folkestone

A chance to test a form line with Bould Mover taking part in this Folkestone maiden after finishing a running-on 4th to Star Rover.

Although all of these juveniles are cheap purchases, this race has featured a number of capable two-year-olds in its time. It will be interesting to see how the Curtis-trained youngster, Bould Mover, fares. This Kyllachy colt didn't look the most fluent of runners although this may have simply been down to inexperience on debut. A strong, deep-chested sort this will be a race where they want to make their racing advantage count. When competing at Kempton, he took a while to get into his running. It is a possibility this colt could be outpace again.

Maoi Chinn Tire (J.S.Moore) & Black Baccara (P.S.McEntee) were both entered to run in the Brocklesby stakes. Moore won this race in 2007 with Nikindi. However, he has a poor win rate with debutants and not very successful with juveniles in his own colours. Rod Millman ran Sauze D'Oulx in this race in 2007, which went on to win second time out. Alphacino trained by M. Channon and Bill Turner's Anjomarba are amongst the favourites in the betting so they are certainly worth noting.

The main point of interest here is simply to see how Bould Mover goes with regard to future form lines.

A watching race.

Race review: 'The field was strung out and Bould Mover wasn't up to winning what looks to be a poor race. Black Baccara managed to pip Tom Folan on the line. The later named was also an entrant for the Brocklesby, so they have been an intersting pointer. McEntee suggested that the winner would be put away with thoughts of the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. This race looked quite modest but time will tell.'
