Who To Follow At Ascot On Friday

Horse To Follow - Debutchet

The Novices Limited Handicap Chase over two miles looks a highly competitive event and we have sided with the Mags Mullins trained Debuchet.

This six year old gelding first really came on the seen when finishing runner up in the 2017 Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham festival.

However, after that he fell of the boil not winning a single one of his 11 outings over hurdles but now over fences and after scoring on his debut over the bigger obstacles at Fairyhouse he looks a big player again.

Trainer To Follow - Nicky Henderson

Nicky Henderson saddles some really smart runners on Friday and three of them we like the look of starting with the first race and the ever consistent Angels Breath.

Nicky Henderson's chaser heads back to the track over this further distance in another small fielded event that only sees one other runner he will have to beat.

As a hurdler the grey looked to have a bright future but never really followed through with his potential, but being back at Ascot makes him a big player on Friday with two races and two wins at the Berkshire track in his career.

In the second race of the day he fields Beyondthestorm and this six year old gelding is very unexposed for his age only racing three times and two of them coming in rules events so he should be a big improver.

He was unleashed for the season at Chepstow back in November finishing fourth in a Maiden hurdle with the winner that day since going on to frank the form and win easily again.

The final runner from this trainers yard that we like on the day is Time Flies By in the Grade Two Supreme Trial and he is having his first start over hurdles after running well in two bumpers at Cheltenham, one coming in October when winning a Class 2 event and the second in a Listed event finishing a narrow second.

If taking to hurdles straight away he looks to have a big chance going for a top yard and super connections of J P McManus.

Jockey To Follow - Lorcan Williams

Lorcan Williams is a highly skilled conditional jockey for Paul Nicholls and he has one ride for the trainer on Friday that makes him one to follow.

The five year old has started this season in fine form with a third on debut at Exeter with the second that day going on to win a better race next time out.

The gelding then got off the mark next time out at Wincanton in a Class 4 event and although this is tougher and in different conditions he looks one of the best horses in the contest.
