Charlie – As there has been no racing for a while and only just started back behind closed doors, the normal process of checking recent form is a bit of a shot in the dark. I looked through the cards and although the races look decent on paper, but with lack of race fitness and having to take things at face value makes the races even more of a minefield. This would under normal circumstances be a no bet day, but I do have to wet my feet in the water at some point, so I have decided to have a go on my 2 Trackers and see how it goes until there is more of an idea of how races should play out. Anyway enough of my rambling let’s get things underway.

2020-06-05-20-10-12

Newcastle – 1.30 – Global Warning – Has raced 7 times winning 1 and placing 3 times. The victory came here over course and distance on the 19th April 2019 beating Chosen World by 3 and 1/4 lengths with Chaplin Bay another length behind in 3rd. Was disappointing in next 3 races at Newmarket and Kempton. Hasn’t ran since 10th July 2019 at Kempton when finishing 7th of 8 runners. Has been gelded since then and although is without a recent run could easily get involved if the gelding op helps settle him down.

Newmarket – 4.45 – Qaysar – Won 4 of last 6 runs in 2019, the first of those wins came at Newbury on the 6th of August when beating Wafy by 4 and 1/2 lengths. Was then sent to Newmarket on the 10th of August and won again beating Ibraz by a neck. A trip to York was next port of call on the 22nd August and Qaysar finished 6th behind winner What’s The Story. Next race was at Haydock on the 5th September when Qaysar won again beating Dubai Dominion by a neck. Went to Doncaster on the 14th September and won again beating Bayroot by a head. Most recent race was at Ascot on the 5th October last year when Qaysar finished 8th behind winner Kynren. Although has not had a recent run Qaysar was in fairly decent form last year and if race ready could easily get involved although is considerably higher in rating now.

As always please keep stake small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket, if you don’t want to play along just enjoy the races on Itv. I will now hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.

Final Word with Rich –

I would like to echo the words of thanks to everyone, who has been working during the pandemic & those who found time to talk to us… A big weekend!

1.50 Palace House Stakes – Group 3 – 5f….

Far Ahead – Drops back to the minimum trip having been running over 6 & 7f last season. A debut win at this course over 7f on race course debut by a head from Franz Kafta in a Class 4 Maiden last April before finishing a 3 length 3rd to Jash in the Class 1 Listed King Charles III stakes a month later.
Dropped back to 6f at Windsor in June to land a Class 5 Novice Stakes by 5 lengths before heading to Deauville to finishing the season in winning form, when taking the Kistena Listed Stakes by a head from Duhail. Off since.

2.25 – Dahila Stakes – Group 2 – 1m 2f….

Magic Lilly – A winner on race course debut here back in September 2017 when landing a 1m Class 4 Novice Stakes by 8 lengths before placing 3rd to Laurens in the Fillies’ Mile that October by 3/4’s of a length.
was off the track for 721 days and returned at Saint Cloud when stepping up in trip to 1m 2f in the Class 1 Listed Prix Dahlia, when finishing a 3/4’s of a length 2nd. Linfield’s AW surface didn’t agree with her when a 4 & 1/2 lengths 6th of 14 in the Fillies’ Listed Stakes a month later.
A winter in Meydan followed and she returned a short head winner in the Group 2 1m 1f Cape Verdi in January before notching another Group 2, the Balanchine Stakes, 1m 1f by 1 & 1/4 lengths in February and ended the stay in Meydan finishing a 1 & 3/4 length runner up to stable mate Barney Roy in the 1m 1f Group 1 Jebel Hatta. Not raced for 91 days which is less than the rest of the field with time ranging from 162 to 244 days off track. Hopefully will still be fitter than the rest….

3.00 – Newmarket Stakes – Listed – 1m 2f….

Waldkonig – Half brother to Arc winner Waldgeist, through the Dam, Walderche. Unlike Waldgeist, who is sired by Galileo, he is sired by Kingman.
Ran out an impressive 9 length winner on race course debut at Wolverhampton on the All weather over 1m 110ydsin a Class 5 Novice Stakes back in November. Very Interesting…. ONE FOR THE NOTEBOOK

3.35 – 2000 Guineas Stakes – Group 1 – 3YO – 1m

Pinatubo – The Shamardal colt was unbeaten in 7 2YO starts in 2019 & made his race course debut just over a year ago on May 10th in a Class 4 6f Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton beating Platinum Star by 3/4’s of a length.
May 31st saw a 1 & 1/2 length over Oh Purple Reign at Epsom in a Class 2 6f Conditions Stakes. Lope Y Fernandez was put away at Ascot, when Pinatubo stepped up in trip to 7f in the Listed Chesham Stakes by 3 & 1/4 lengths before making it 4 from 4 at Glorious Goodwood with a 5 length win in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes on July 30th from Positive.

A step up to Group 1 company was next and a trip to the Curragh in the Vincent O’Brien National Stakes and literally blew the field away with his nearest rival Armory, some 9 lengths behind in second on September 15th.
The 7th & final win of his 2YO season came on Champions day at Ascot in the Dewhurst Stakes, the round was a lot softer than his previous wins due to the rain around & it looked hard work. Only taking the lead in the final furlong to beat Arizona by 2 lengths.

Returns with a rating of 128 and meets Arizona again. Of the rest the Kamenko, rated 118 was the winner of the Group 3 Futurity Stakes on the All Weather at Newcastle by 3 & 3/4 lengths back in November…
Will Pinatubo be better at 3YO? ALL EYES ON THIS RACE!

Remember folks, if you can’t afford to bet just watch the coverage on ITV….

Good Luck – Charlie & Rich
