Two youngsters to keep an eye on
BEAR in mind griffins Planet II and Citispeed for later juvenile events this season - both turned in promising runs in the opening event yesterday. Planet II ran on quite well from far back and will be suited to a similar trip next time now that he has two runs under his belt and is learning the game. Citispeed raced close to the pace under Frankie F. C. Lor and finished a creditable sixth. Griffin Bold Commander officially finished 10th in the 12-runner field, but that is deceptive.
He is a beautifullybred type by Riverman out of a Topsider mare and he is rapidly learning more about the racing game. He came from a long way back, finished out wide and is looking for a mile. Follow Me is a three-year-old former subscription griffin who has reached a rating of 27 in the middle of Class Five and he will win a race for trainer Gary Ng Ting-keung. He ran pleasingly down the straight 1,000 metres for Walter Swinburn.
