14:30 Thirsk Sat 13 April 2019
One of the few juvenile failures this season for a yard which has a good strike-rate with its two-year-olds. Offered something to work on when beating only one home on debut at Musselburgh (forced to race wide); will come on for the experience.
Cost €33,000 as a yearling for a yard who are capable of getting a juvenile ready first-time out. 2-16 with first-time out two-year-olds at Thirsk in the last five seasons, this one is worth noting for a market move.
Heeraat colt (cost €7,500 as a foal); half-brother to three winners including winner at up to 1m2f Faldal. Stable not known for first-time out juveniles; 0-56 in the last five years, best watched on debut.
Third foal out of a dam who was a 7f two-year-old winner (half-sister to useful winner at up to 1m4f Duke Of Bronte). First juvenile runner for this fledgling yard.
Half-brother to several winners for a yard whose first juvenile of the season runs in division one of this contest. 12% strike-rate with their debutants in this sphere in the last five years (poor record at this track); others appeal more.
Yard no stranger to winning with two-year-old newcomers (outperform their par-score at this track). Up and running with their juveniles already this £28,000 yearling has winning relations in his pedigree; likely to play a part in this.
One of only two with experience in this although she offered little on her debut (left behind from halfway). Should come on a little for that experience switched to turf but hard to see her troubling some of the potentially decent newcomers.
Yard have a 16% strike-rate with newcomers of this age group in the last five years (2-12 with newcomers here). €58,000 yearling; sister to juvenile 6f winner North Wind plus half-sister to several winners; forward display expected.
Yard have a poor strike-rate with first-time out juveniles (the ones that do win tend to be smart). Sister to 1m1f winner Universal Gleam and half-sister to several winners (some at sprint trips); dam juvenile 5f winner; market to provide clues.
With a record of 1-91 for juvenile newcomers over the past five years not much should be expected of this daughter of Monsieur Bond on her first start. Out of a dam who won at up to 1m4f she can only be watched on her initial outing.
Stable have no great record with two-year-old newcomers (5% strike-rate last five years). Kodiac filly (cost 18,000 yearling), sister to winner at up to 6f Artair (juvenile 5f winner); only of interest if there was market support.
