One Horse, Jockey and Trainer to Follow On Day Three at Royal Ascot

Horse To Follow - Celestin

The first Group contest of the afternoon is the Jersey Stakes over seven furlongs and the French raider Celestin for trainer Fabrice Chappet should go very well.

The colt Looks to be a very progressive three year old running twice this season, firstly at Chantilly on good to soft finishing second in a conditions race and then finishing a decent fourth in the Group One French 2000 Guineas.

Now dropping down to a Group Three he can make his black type experience tell and having ran twice on good to soft ground he should be one of the fittest horses in the field.

Trainer To Follow - Roger Varian

Roger Varian is a trainer in some smart form since the resumption of racing with 10 winners from 58 runners which has seen him gain a 17.24% strike rate.

At Ascot on Thursday he has some really smart chances that can add to his Ascot record over the last 12 months which has seen him have five winners and five places from 30 runners, posing a strike rate of 16.67%.

Although having a decent amount of runners on the day the one we think is his best chance is Waliyak who has big each way claims at 14/1.

Jockey To Follow - David Egan

Finally the jockey to follow for tomorrow is the young David Egan who has risen through the ranks over the last few seasons and has a good bunch of rides on Thursday.

Having landed six winners since the start of the delayed season he can add to that on the big stage and at the back end of the card there are two of his rides we like.

The first one comes in the Britannia Stakes where Amaysmont has faced many of these rivals already prior to this race and was unlucky when making a late charge on seasonal reappearance at Lingfield earlier this month.

A clear run and and an extra furlong should see him knock on the door of at least a place finish having shown his winning form as a two year old, when a clearcut winner on debut at Carlisle.

In the final race of the day he links up with Roger Varian on Waliyak who broke her maiden tag at the third time of asking in November at Wolverhampton.

Before that she had two prior starts and finished a decent second both times at Newmarket in tricky conditions so will not mind the wet surface.
