One Horse, Jockey And Trainer TO Follow On Saturday In Britain

Horse To Follow - Boccaccio - Newmarket

One of our best bets across the weekend is Boccaccio in the Class 2 Handicap over seven furlongs and this son of Dubawi looks a class act.

He was waited on patiently as a two year old, costing 850,000gns as a yearling and going on to race twice in Novice events and winning them both easily.

He steps up for his handicap debut on Saturday but if improving on what he did last season and justifying his pedigree, the Charlie Appleby trained colt should be head and shoulders above this field.

Trainer To Follow - Alan King - Newcastle

Alan King has just one runner across the whole day on Saturday and for a man in the form he is in that can't go unnoticed.

He fields Rainbow Dreamer in the Northumberland Plate, a race which he won last season with who Dares Wins who has since gone on to win at Royal Ascot.

Alan King had a very successful time of things at the royal meeting having five runners and gaining three winners and a place.

Rainbow Dreamer although near the top of the weights looks a classy stayer that since the turn of the year has scored three times over two miles on the all weather and last time out finished a decent fourth in the Group Three Sagaro Stakes over course and distance.

Jockey To Follow - Jim Crowley - Newmarket

The man of the moment, Jim Crowley after having a superb Royal Ascot having landed six winners, he is set for another big day at Newmarket with a stand out book of rides.

The rider has had 12 winners from 51 rides over the last two weeks which sees him pick up a strike rate of 23.53%

Alongside that Newmarket has been a happy hunting ground for the ex champion jockey racing 53 times in the last 12 months and going on to win 10 and place in another 10.

This sees him with a win rate of 18.87% at the track and he should add to that on Saturday.
