@TheTWETracker's Racing Review - 19/07/21


Although failing to get her head in front thus far, Ed Walker's thrice-raced filly looked desperately unlucky not to gain that elusive breakthrough win when narrowly denied over five furlongs at Bath last time.

That run suggested she ought to have no problem stepping back up to 6f and a first win looks imminent for this daughter of Hot Streak.


Reach For The Moon

Her majesty's runner very much caught the eye when pipped close home by the well-regarded Point Lonsdale in the Chesham last month, and having been sent off at long odds on in a decidedly weaker contest next time it was no surprise to see the Sea The Stars colt finally get his head in front.

This chap certainly holds bundles of ability and should go on improving as he moves up in distance.


Martyn Meade’s two-year-old flashed home after being switched for a move and based on this effort he looks ready for a step up to 7f.

A potentially smart horse in the making.

So Smart

Tom Dascombe's colt shaped encouragingly when sixth on debut behind subsequent Coventry Stakes winner Berkshire Shadow, and as expected improved plenty for that initial experience when losing narrowly to a speedy Clive Cox juvenile last time.

He was well fancied at the head of the market for a five-furlong maiden at Ripon on Saturday, before proving unruly at the post and withdrawn late, but having displayed enough to provide hope he should be winning races he has to be taken seriously next time out.

Home City

Saeed bin Suroor’s colt has shown more than enough to suggest he is up to winning races, and having looked unlucky to be demoted to second in a controversial stewards enquiry over the weekend, he looks certain to be thereabouts next time.


James Fanshawe’s colt hit traffic on the run in but stayed on really well in the closing stages to finish an encouraging third on his racecourse debut over the weekend.

This was a promising first effort, and this son of Raven's Pass bears close watching in the market next time out.
