There is a fascinating day of racing in store at Newmarket with the first six races of the day solely for two-year-olds. They will get their chance to impress on debut and there are a handful of interesting types that will take to the track for the first time. Tactical is well thought of, Magical Land has plenty of potential as a colt of Frankel while Creative Force is the half-brother of several winners. There will be some that will make a name for themselves tomorrow and highlight their potential to be future stars but caution is advised if plunging into the betting market on these races.
The first Handicap of the meeting comes at 16:45 and Mia Mento could be the one to take the glory. The four-year-old filly has not won since her debut in July 2018 but looks to have a good chance of ending that drought here. Her second at Newcastle over 6f last time out was eye-catching and despite a 2lb rise for that performance, she has further improvement in her and can get her nose in front here.
The 17:20 is a competitive Handicap with several runners boasting strong claims but Magic J looks to be the standout in the field and is a worthy favourite. Oisin Murphy has endured a couple of frustrating days but will hope to put those woes behind him here. He won on his only start as a two-year-old and although he remains largely unexposed after just three races last year, his sole victory came over this distance and with the same going which further boosts his claims.
Bear Force One looks to be a real improver and has finished in the top two in his last three races. He likely has more to come following a solid second at Kempton back in November and with two wins from three attempts over 7f, he could hand Jason Watson a win after some disappointing mounts since the racing restarted.
The final race of the day looks wide-open with plenty capable of getting their nose in front. It is a difficult contest to call but slight preference is for one of the bigger prices in the field in Geranium. The bottom weight is a C&D winner while the mare has also managed to win two of three starts over this distance and placing on the other occasion which makes her a solid each-way shot at the very least.
