Today’s 2 year old races with Smartform

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Early season 2 year old races can be notoriously difficult.  With no form, what is there to go on?

For the horse – breeding (sire, dam_sire), precocity

For the connections – recent trainer form, trainer specialism, trainer and jockey trends

Smartform can give you an edge in all these areas.

Looking at precocity alone, foaling dates are a highly useful pointer at this stage of the season.  In less than a second with Smartform we can find all 2 year old races on any given day and rank them all according to their birthday.

Here are the top third of the field ranked from this query in each race today (in order of birthday):

Haydock 2.30:  Lexi’s Prince, Egyptian Cross, Banksy, Fiction or Fact

Ascot 4.00:  Bayleyf, North Star Boy, Charles The Great

Warwick 6.15:  Choice Of Remark, Manderston

At this stage of the season, all the above have a distinct edge in age over their contemporaries and should go very well.
