One Horse, Trainer and Jockey To Follow On Saturday

Horse To Follow - Cill Anna - Doncaster

The Paul Nicholls trained Cill Anna looks the pick of the bunch in the Listed Mares Novices Hurdle at Doncaster at the weekend and is our fancy.

The five year old mare has made huge strides forward this term after starting over bumpers in October and not running to bad standard but over hurdles she has looked a different animal.

She went to Wincanton in December and finished a strong third of 13 behind a nice type for Tom Lacey and since then she has used that to be unbeaten in her next two contests.

The pacy mare headed to Warwick in a Mares Novices Hurdle and when taking on a decent runner for the Skelton's she stuck to the task well to land her first contest over timber.

She added to this next time out at Wincanton when beating a much better field in a similar event and now stepping up to Listed company she looks the pick of the ante-post field.

Trainer To Follow - Colin Tizzard - Newbury

Colin Tizzard has some smart chances on Saturday especially at Newbury and we like two of his runners on the day that we believe will pay to follow.

The first comes in the Veteran's Handicap Chase and the 13 year old Theatre Guide looks to have a leading chance off the back of what he did last time out.

The gelding does his best work the further he goes with a good second in the same contest last season which shows he stays the trip well.

Last time out he finished a smart third in a similar event at Sandown when staying on well from the back to narrowly finish third on the line and that sets the form for us.

The final chance we like of his is the Faustinovick and this six year old has some decent form when finishing second behind a gelding on debut and then again he placed in a nice event not quite finishing his race off well.

He has now been given a wind operation but on his last outing was very below par in heavy ground and will not ant any rain if he is able to get back to his best.

Jockey To Follow - Bryony Frost - Newbury

Bryony Frost is a fan favourite in the sport these days and on Saturday she has some huge rides that should see her in the winners enclosure.

We like two of her mounts starting with the Mont Des Avaloirs and this seven year old has been backed all week to land this event having finished second on his last two outings, with the latter coming at Newbury over three miles.

The step back in trip is exactly what is needed for him to flourish having just been outstayed at the start of the month.

In the final race of the afternoon she sits on the Master Tommytucker who is turned around quickly after a heavy fall for the second time in a row and in this event we are giving the gelding his last chance

The nine year old has been highly touted from this yard to be a very special horse and after he won nicely over two miles two furlongs at Kempton on his seasonal debut he backed that up.

He did look like he could go over further and although falling last time out in the Grade One Kauto Star Novices' Chase on Boxing Day, he travelled nicely.

Ge did the same last week when falling at the fourth fence from home for the second time and hopefully Nicholls has sent him schooling over the week to get his jumping more accurate.
