1:30 Beverley

The first division of a restricted maiden auction event. Jack My Boy should run a decent race as his debut form showed an element of ability. The experience and the high draw will certainly be an advantage and auction races are not the most competitive of races. I’m quite interested to see how Bronze Beau comes out of his first race. An athletic sort, Stubbs are usually ready to fire at second time of asking although his Compton Place gelding needs to improve and may be better over further. Kevin Ryan’s juveniles are always worth noting although I find they can often be under priced on debut and it isn’t an easy task against experienced opponents. At least this colt has a good draw. Of the others A Touch Of Luck & Tres Coronas have both been entered for stake races. Ananda Kanda looks to be second string. In summary, experience and high draw are major advantages here.

A watching race.

Race review: 'Not the most competitive of races but Jack My Boy ran out a fair winner from Heslington. For much of the race this looked out of three, however, Bronze Beau didn't finish his race and got caught on the line for third by the unraced Tres Coronas.'

Other races:

2:25 Newmarket

A competitive little conditional stakes race. Not the easiest of betting races and I certainly wouldn't be interested unless I could get a speculative price. That isn't going to happen. It will take a decent horse to beat Heart's Of Fire.

A watching race.

Race review: Monsieur Chevalier won this well and will almost certainly be heading to Royal Ascot. Hearts Of Fire ran a very disappointing race. It is difficult to imagine this was his running but time may tell it was.'
