6th September

A quiet day's racing, for a change. Only two races, a maiden and a nursery.

2:30 York
The form horses don't set the highest of standards so this looks an open race. Heslington ran well last time at Beverley. A speedy type, he has enough ability to win a race although his extreme layoff since April leaves a number of questions to be answered. Both Moorhouse Girl and Taborcillo have shown promise but improvement is needed else they are vulnerable. Marius Maximus could be the quality juvenile here, costing a hefty sum and well owned. Johnston is rather hit and miss with his juveniles and it is worth noting that he a poor win rate when priced over 7/1 on debut so this two-year-old will need to be relatively fancied to hold much hope. However, he does well at York. Coolminx is another juvenile that should be respected as Fahey does well with his juveniles when priced 13/2 & less on debut. Also, he often sends some of his best juveniles to York. An open race to say the least and the form horses need to improve to give them the edge over those making their debuts. I would rather watch this race myself, but Coolminx, if relatively fancied in the betting, is the most likely to run a race.
