A winner and a second beaten a neck so far this week. I am having a late bet on Wednesday, in fact, the last race of the day, up at Wolverhampton in the Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Maiden Stakes over 7f due off at 8.20.
The Horse I am on is the unraced two-year-old Youthful. The colt was bred by the Queen, gawd bless her. The sire is multiple G1 winner Shamardal and the colt is out of the Queen's winning filly Good Hope (Cape Cross). In training with Michael Bell (he also trained the dam) he has reportedly been showing up well on the gallops and I think is one to keep an eye out for over the coming months. Stall two is a plus, the yard has a fair strike-rate here and Hayley Turner rides. I have a bit of the 15-2 about him getting off to a winning start.
