Five-Shot Bullet Points: Henry Candy

A perfect gentleman
The gentleman of the training ranks and very realistic when placing his horses. Candy doesn't have a large string of two year olds but one who should always be respected. His purchase of Amour Propre for 1,500gns shows he has an eye for a good horse. Each season sees one or two exciting prospects. But what makes a winner for Henry Candy?
  • Take note of juveniles that run in May
  • Generally, juveniles struggle to win on debut even when relatively fancied
  • However, fancied debutantes often go on to win in their 2yo career
  • Juveniles fancied on their second start have good win and place claims
  • Listen to the trainer's comments - he is straightforward: never too optimistic
