Hugo Palmer: Roseland among the trainer’s nice team of two-year-olds

David Baxter casts a critical eye over every maiden run and will be bringing you his two-year-olds he thinks it will prove profitable to follow every fortnight over the Flat season. Here he has his first four to keep an eye on:
Tallinski April 2, Doncaster, 7th
By first-season sire Mayson, this colt showed good pace before understandably fading on testing ground in the Brocklesby. That form is a mixed bag so far, but the sixth, Springwood, did win next time out at Pontefract. Trainer Brian Ellison has made a good start with his juveniles with two winners already on the board and with normal progression Tallinski can add to the tally. He has entries at Doncaster and Musselburgh this week plus Beverley next Monday and is worth a look.
Another Angel April 11, Redcar, 3rd
Sent off favourite on debut, but was slowly away and inexperience cost this colt any chance of making a winning start. However, he started to get the hang of things in the second half of the race, making up a decent amount of ground for minimal pressure. That run should not be lost on him and he can make amends soon, possibly at Doncaster on Saturday.
In First Place April 23, Doncaster, 3rd
The front pair pulled clear in this race for newcomers, but this son of Bated Breath shaped promisingly. Trainer Richard Fahey has said his juveniles have been needing the experience, and having travelled well, In First Place looked a little lost when asked for his effort. He should do better when next seen.
Roseland April 25, Wolverhampton, 3rd
This filly ran in the first 6f race of the season for juveniles, and did not disgrace herself. Trainer Hugo Palmer looks to have a good team of two-year-olds judged on what he has run already, and she can leave her debut form behind. Although beaten a fair way by the front pair, she was clear of the rest and stuck on at the one pace. Her pedigree suggests further will be needed, but she may still be able to make an impact at 6f.
