Five Horses To Follow This Weekend - 10/07/19

1. Accidental Agent

Accidental Agent will head back to Ascot for the Group Two Summer Mile on Saturday, in an attempt to put behind him his Queen Anne antics.

Winner of the Group One last year on the opening day of the royal meeting, the five-year-old failed to come out of the stalls when looking to defend his crown, until the rest of the field were a good two-three furlongs clear of him.

Eve Johnson Houghton highlighted 'it was just one of those things' and ironically as an 'accident', but she would have surely invested much of her time in practicing stalls exit at home with him to make sure a repeat is not on its way.

The horse is an expert at the Berkshire venue on a going day, and conditions seem set for a strong run now dropping a grade.

2. Armory

Armory was an easy winner of his maiden at the Curragh on Irish Derby weekend, and now takes the rise in class to compete in the Group Two bet365 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket.

A son of Galileo, the juvenile looked to have plenty about him when coming home third on his racecourse debut at Leopardstown in early June, despite not wanting to learn beforehand.

Of course a new experience for him meant he got quite upset in the preliminaries, but there were no issues last time out and in the end, won under hands and heels.

Slight possibilities that Donnacha O'Brien did not call for maximum that day, and there could be plenty left in reserve for this contest.

Big player for Ballydoyle.

3. Ten Sovereigns

Ten Sovereigns certainly has ground to make up in the Darley July Cup Stakes this weekend, given he came home a beaten fourth in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot having been sent off the even-money favourite.

However, he deserves another chance as that was his first run back at six furlongs since winning the Group One Middle Park Stakes here last September.

A hat-trick of wins as a juvenile and remaining unbeaten, you would have never of thought this son of No Nay Never would be priced at 10/1 or bigger for a sprinting assignment this term - given what you saw the last.

Possibly not the best ride from Ryan Moore at Ascot as well to throw in, but it appears plenty needs to work in his favour to reverse the form with Advertise.

4. Major Jumbo

Major Jumbo loves these big handicaps at York for trainer Kevin Ryan, but despite looking at the amount of runners in the field, he will be competing at Listed level in the John Smith's City Walls Stakes.

With course figures of 3913412, it's clear he brings his best form to the Knavesmire, and should be in with strong claims for another victory given his close third at Chantilly latest in the Group Two Prix du Gros-Chene.

Beaten by the very impressive Inns Of Court for Godolphin by just three lengths, trainer Ryan and owner TA Rahman should really fancy their chances of following up the five-year-old's success here back in October.

Last four starts have been in Class One level, and has grown to not look out of place in this category.

Big contender.

5. Bally Longford

Despite being eleven-years-old now, Bally Longford looks in the form of his life at the minute for trainer Colin Tizzard and in the colours of Ann & Alan Potts Limited.

He finished second to Darcy Ward on first appearance of the new season at Exeter in May, before scoring twice in the space of three weeks at Ffos Las under Harry Cobden.

The veteran will look to secure the hat-trick and his ninth career victory when racing in the Actuate Marketing Handicap Chase, at a track much closer to home at Newton Abbot.

Mark has risen a stone this season, so this could be his ceiling point.
