    In The Middle Park, at 16’s, I have to be with Lope Y Fernandez. Has to step up again from his G3 the last time,but I think he can, and it looks a fair EW Price.

    There were more questions than answers from The Middle Park, and although the Racing Post had it as the best renewal in a generation, I wouldn’t read too much into their view.

    I’ll be more than happy to be proved wrong, I’m certainly no expert, but it didn’t look like a race to get too excited about.

    Having said that, and contradictorily, I still think that we have an above average crop this year, and the reappearance Of Pinatubo cannot come quick enough. He is by some stretch the most important 2yo I’ve ever seen.

    I should also give a mention to Glasvegas again.

    For all that it probably wasn’t the type of race that this thread is about, it was nice to see him get his head in front at Hamilton. I hope he continues to improve.

    See Convict got his nose in front third time around (saddle slipped 2nd time up), think Haggas might do well by this one next season.

    Hi Darren :bye:
    In answer to your question on Joni’s Thread…I think Kinross is a horse who is going to improve in leaps and bounds over the winter.
    He wasn’t outstanding in the pre parade apart from being very green and neighing all the time ..this was obviously not a negative for him but it put me off backing him :wacko:

    One to take out of that race is Aiden O’Briens Vatican City who didnt get the best of runs and has entries in the 2000 Guineas and Derby..

    Sorry I don’t really know much more about plans for Kinross next year Darren and hope that helps..Jac :rose:

    Kinross debut speed figure of 62 was very impressive.

    There is one 2yo that I am waiting to see run again and that is Roger Varian’s Pierre Lapin, so good do I think that this horse will be in time I will put him up as a group 1 prospect.

    Roger Varian didn’t really want to run him at Newbury because he is still on the weak side, his speed figure of 70 certainly made me sit up and take notice.

    Mike, Any figure for Kinross that bolted up at Newmarket on Saturday? He looks a proper tool to my eye.

    EDIT – Just seen you posted about him above haha :good:

    Tbracing mentioned CONVICT who ran second at York at the weekend. Looks to have some growing to do and should be all the better for another winter behind him. Half-brother to Hamish who has turned into a Pattern class 3yo this term.

    ART POWER floated over the soft ground to win at York on Friday. A neat sort who will bulk out a bit for next year and won with any amount in hand.

    Hong Kong is one I will definitely be interested in next year. I liked the way he did it today at Naas.

    Dazza, i didn’t have a huge view on any of the 2yo races from Newmarket.

    Iberia this weekend was quite disappointing, i have to admit i was surprised to see him take his chance back over 7f as i thought he was in need of further already. Still a poor race he should’ve been good enough to win IMO.

    Some nice races at Newmarket Trip pointed out on Joni’s thread.

    Interesting to see Mulryan better known for City Island to have one entered. Also Almighwar is superbly bred!!

    Hi Darren
    Just looking back at the Horris Hill run at Newmarket this year on Saturday 2nd November and have to give a big thumbs up to the winner….
    KENZAI WARRIOR
    who looked amazing in the paddock, you could see your face in his coat a really handsome colt :heart: and going to post he also took the eye.

    He won the race in great style in atrocious conditions and is a definite 2000 Guineas contender for Roger Teal.
    Unbeaten this season in two runs Kenzai Warrior had previously beaten another 2yo that must be followed in 2020…
    MAX VEGA easy winner of the Zetland Stakes at Newmarket on 12th October.

    Would be interested in TBB’s views on Kenzai Warrior and Max Vega both look to have a great 2020 season ahead of them.
