Brian Meehan on Fire this Early Two-Year-Old Season

The two-year-old season is underway and I'm pleased to say that everything seems pretty normal. And that's good news horse trainers big and small and the racing industry at large. 

In truth, we have a lot to be thankful for.  

Early season is always a time to be extra careful but for all those who love to wager at you could still fill your wallet with a bundle of lovely cash. 

Well, that's the idea and there is a winner in every race so don't complain to me if your selection falls short of the mark. 

That brings me to horse trainers and why it pays to follow a stable in form. One such proponent is Brian Meehan whose two-year-old colts, geldings and fillies have been in flying form - a number have won.

Manton House Estate, Marlborough, Wiltshire has been the starting point for many a class thoroughbred who achieved greatness. 

For instance, major two-year-old wins in the United Kingdon include: 

The Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1) with Magical Romance (2004) & Donna Blini (2005).

In addition, the Racing Post Trophy (Group 1) in 2008 with Crowded House, ridden by Jamie Spencer. 

This season has seen the two-year-olds set a sparkling pace from a handful of runners.

These include three debut wins (which is unusual for the stable):

Talbot made a fine debut for Meehan when winning well at Lingfield. This son of Gleneagles disappointed when heading to Royal Ascot's Coventry Stakes (Group 2) but clearly a horse with ample ability.

There was much to like about the performance of Frankel filly Ghaaliya who held on well at odds of 14/1 when looking an easy winner at Kempton on debut. Looking green and inexperienced, she is likely to improve a good deal from this racecourse bow and is sure to be racing at pattern class soon. 

If that wasn't good enough, Meehan sent out another debutante to taste victory at Windsor. Tanfantic finished the race with zeal to win at odds of 12/1. This good-looking gelding, a son of Gutaifan, is a real bargain yearling buy at just £25,000. 

In total, at the time of writing, Meehan has had five two-year-olds racing this season and achieved four winners and two second places. 

If you follow the maxim of betting on a stable in form, then Brian Meehan is likely to add to your riches.
