The two-year-old season, which started on Derby Day (June 29), continues tomorrow with another three-furlong sprint.

Six youngsters are entered with all but one, Daytona Belle, facing the starter for the first time.

Here is a rundown of the six and their chances of winning this race.

COLAWILL: (2-y-o b f — StrikeitwhileitshotSwiss Account) — Finished way behind the speedy England's Rose when both made their debut on June 29. For tomorrow's outing, Colawill races with the blinkers off and the figure 8 on, but even with this change of equipment, she is not going to perturb her rivals.

WOW WOW: (2-y-o b c — Casual Trick Sarah Barracuda) — Interestingly, Wow Wow, who is racing for the second time does so on the same programme his half-brother Crimson ( Nuclear Wayne Sarah Barracuda) is racing. Wow Wow opened his racing career on June 29, when he, after only one major exercise work under his girth was able to finish four lengths behind England's Rose. That performance gave a clear indication that Wow Wow is of some ability and with England's Rose not around in this one, he should register his first win. Seems to be a good one in the making, so let's see how Wow Wow develops.

CRAFTY ZELLA ZEEN: (2-y-o b c — Storm Craft Remmi Case) — Was suppose to make his debut on June 29, but was announced as a late non-starter prior to race time. Crafty Zella Zeen is learning his craft and should not trouble the principals tomorrow.

DAYTONA BELLE: (2-y-o b f – Dayton Flyer Burning Brightly) — Comes into this second juvenile race without anything to recommend her. It's obviously a wait-and-see game with Daytona Belle.

DEJAE'S BOY: (2-y-o dkb. c — Storm Craft Dream Big) — This Wayne DaCosta trained colt was entered in the race won by stable companion England's Rose on June 29 but gave trouble behind the starting gates, and was declared a late-non-starter. There are some railbirds who claim that Dejae's Boy has some ability but with Wow Wow showing up himself already, Dejae's Boy will have to be special to win tomorrow.

EXPEDITIOUS: (2-y-o b. c — Storm CraftBreath of Life) — Ran in the first two-year-old of the year on June 29, but and was too far behind the winner and second place horse to even nudge a thought of winning.
