One Trainer / Jockey / Horse To Follow This Weekend - 07/06/2019


Many trainers hit purple patches throughout the season, and enjoy a spell of never-ending winners.

It is hard to calculate or to explain a series of quick success of an individual; things just start to click, but it is probably even harder to justify if your name is Andrew Balding.

The 46-year-old has been in sensational form for the majority of the turf season so far as a whole, particularly when teaming up with Silvestre de Sousa in the colours of King Power Racing limited.

Balding has sent out eleven winners in the last two weeks, running at a strike rate of 20%, and has seven chances of a winner on Saturday afternoon across three meetings.

Bacacarat repreresents arguably the best of those, and he runs in the 3:40 at Chelmsford - the Bet totetrifecta At Moulsham Mile Handicap.


A bit of the 'state of the obvious' as to our jockey to follow this weekend.

Oisin Murphy has been in scintillating form in the last two weeks, recording 22 winners from a possible 74 rides at the time of writing.

He recorded a hat-trick at Wolverhampton on Monday evening, and has since added six more this week with trips at Lingfield, here at Chelmsford and at Kempton where he notched up another three-timer on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old's decision to ride at Chelmsford over turf venues on Saturday is a significant one as he is in a rich vein of form on the artificial surface, and will certainly have an edge with most other top jockeys heading elsewhere, as he looks to build up a lead in the Jockeys Championship.

Murphy has seven rides in Essex on Saturday, with Neon Sea in the Fillies Handicap later in the card possibly the best of his chances.

It would not surprise us if he had more than just one.


Safe Voyage is in solid form of late, winning four of his last five, including course and distance success at Haydock last month, which in turn put him three-from-three at the track.

The six-year-old will bid for further glory at the Liverpool venue in the Group Three Betway John Of Gaunt Stakes, but will face stiff competition in the field.

He reigned supreme at the Galway festival last summer before his one overall disappointment at Ascot in the Balmoral Handicap, but never seemed to be going a yard that day.

The incoming ground conditions will shortly sharpen his appetite for another victory at Haydock, and that is certainly possible here.

Safe Voyage is definitely the horse to keep an eye on this weekend, and looks a nice price too.
