British Breeders Stakes - Swindon 480M - £15,000

 

70th Two-Year-Old Produce Stakes Final (480m) - £15,000

CASTELL HENRY can give Philip Simmonds his first success in the 70th Two-Year-Old Produce Stakes at Swindon on Saturday.

The talentedJune 2014 son of Droopys Scolari has the pace and stamina – and the draw – to prove too good for likely favourite Blissful Scolari.

Castell Henry (trap three) is probably overall the quickest away in the line-up. He has the pace to clear Badabing (trap one) and Bang On Giles (trap two), his brother and kennelmate, on the run to the first bend and is fancied to capitalise on what ought to be a prominent position around the turn.

Blissful Scolari (trap four) appears disadvantaged by being outside Castell Henry, although given the seeding of the pair, that was always going to be the case.

The likelihood is that Castell Henry will lead Blissful Scolari around the first bend but there will be strong support to the view that Blissful Scolari can give Castell Henry a start and beating, although I’m not so sure.

In what is a cracking final I take Castell Henry to prove best. Blissful Scolari looks the forecast link, whilst a case can be made for Bansha Rooskey to make an impact in the early stages from trap six.

Thinkingofdarcy (trap five) impressed when staying on well behind Blissful Scolari last time and is not making up the numbers and the same can be said of Badabing. He was the slowest winner on Monday but was good to the eye. Bang On Giles is tough and determined.
