David Baxter with his best two-year-old bet at Hamilton on Wednesday
A few of the field for this novice already have some race experience, including Tinochio. He was fourth on debut at Pontefract, but did well to only be beaten a length, as he was in definite need of the experience.
He was slowly away, raced without cover on the edge of the field, and didn't handle the bend particularly well either. But once organised in the straight he finished well, and could have potentially won had he been more clued up.
At Hamilton, Tinochio does not have a bend to contend with, and he should be wiser for the initial experience. Trainer Kevin Ryan has a 32 per cent strike-rate with his juveniles at the course for the last five seasons (ten from 31), and Kevin Stott, who could hardly be riding any better, is in the plate.
