Thoughts on Socrates at Ascot

Socrates makes his racecourse debut at Ascot this afternoon in the 2.05 (Saturday, September 3rd). Luke Morris rides the colt in the seven furlong maiden. He is a nice type sure to develop with racing. Both his brothers won twice at three for the yard, Ascot is a nice track to give him an introduction and a fun day out for his owners.

In against some very well bred debutants with big purchase tags and a couple that looked very promising on their first starts this race looks sure to through a couple of decent horses for the future. Muhajjal beat three subsequent winners on debut and looks the pick of those with experience.
