Five Horses To Follow This Weekend - 04/06/2019

1. True Self

Willie Mullins has had a growing group of flat horses in the last few years, and unsurprisingly they've competed in the staying division.

True Self is certainly one of high interest going into this weekend, and she is entered in the Group Three Pinnacle Stakes at Haydock this weekend.

The six-year-old mare is unbeaten in her last four appearances on the flat after failing to make her name as a hurdle.

Returning to the scene with victory at Gowran last month, she proved her class at both Bath and Newmarket last term with short odds-victories at Class One level, and should be well on her way to another victory here.

2. Judicial

Last year's Coral Charge winner Judicial will look to improve from his seasonal-returning seventh at Newmarket in the Palace House Stakes behind Mabs Cross.

The Julie Camacho-trained seven-year-old is entered at Haydock in the Listed Achillies Stakes over the flying-five furlongs, with Graham Lee booked to do the steering.

After his victories at Beverley and then at Sandown, the Iffraaj gelding did just appear to lose his way at York and Newbury, but was seen racing in Group One company.

Back in Class One grade, his chances have improved and should go close this time on route to some other decent clashes this summer.

3. Summerghand

Summerghand cannot be too far away from his first victory of the season for trainer David O'Meara, after knocking on the door twice on Newmarket's Rowley Mile.

Now switching to the July course - of which he is a course and distance winner, he was just denied by Flavius Titus on reappearance back in April and subsequently best of the rest behind Charlie Appleby's On The Warpath, but beating the Roger Varian four-year-old in the process.

He remains nicely handicapped having only gone up three pounds for his performances this season, and should put in a strong bid in Class Two Handicap company once again.

4. Outbox

Outbox remains in tact for the Bernand Sunley Memorial Handicap this weekend at Newmarket in the 2:45, and could make his first start of the season for Roger Varian in the colours of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid.

Son of Frankel, he was three from three last year as a three-year-old, with victories at Ffos Las and Leicester followed by a decent convincing win in a Conditions contest at Newbury in October.

The form has since been boosted with Aspetar winning at Chantilly on Sunday on Prix du Jockey Club day, and should fare well off a decent opening mark of 102 in handicap company over a further trip.

Looks a contest with some considerable depth to its base, but Atzeni will be fresh after his stunning weekend at Epsom.

5. King's Advice

In the same contest as Outbox, Mark Johnston's King's Advice can extend his impressive winning run to seven races.

Six victories in a row over either twelve or fourteen furlongs has seen the five-year-old's mark climb almost two stone in the ratings, having been purchased from Germany earlier this year.

He is yet to lose for Johnston, after impressing on the all-weather at Kempton, Lingfield and Wolverhampton, and converting that successfully at Thirsk, Ripon and Goodwood latest.

Hard to stop horse's in form even when adding penalties, and appears to just be getting better and better.

Could be a group performer down the line, and should be tough to stop from winning once again.
