12th October

A good number of two-year-old races today at Salisbury, Windsor and Kempton. Have my eye on a couple so will update at 1pm.

2:40 Salisbury
A fillies' maiden over this 7f. Probably a decent heat with a few big trainers represented here. I will be watching Shimmering Moment. This juvenile was originally trained by Karl Burk, then Alan Jarvis, and now Henry Cecil. Such a string of changes makes it difficult to assess this juvenile although, strange as it may seem, I would have been betting today if it was still trained by Burke. Certainly a horse I will be watching.

3:15 Salisbury
The second division is quite an interesting event. Cojo is worth a mention but whether I bet or not depends on this ones starting price and at this moment I can't come to a conclusion. Meehan is a very good trainer and he is particularly good at getting juveniles to win on their second start. Eddie Ahern has a good strike race, too, which is encouraging. If fancied, this could go well.
