Trainer To Follow - Charlie Appleby

Charlie Appleby sends a few nice runners to Ascot on Wednesday and with the way he has started the season he is the man to follow at the Berkshire track.

Appleby fields his first two runners of the afternoon in the Novice Stakes over a mile with Dancing Goddess and Veil Of Shadows both offering nice pieces of form heading into the race.

In the Group Three Commonwealth Cup Stakes over 6f, Appleby has the favourite Mischief Magic who was last seen winning the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint at Keeneland.

The Newmarket handler heads into the meeting sporting a strike rate of 25% for the last two weeks managing five winners from his last 20 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Hollie Doyle

Hollie Doyle has managed to pick up some nice rides across the Ascot card on Wednesday and we think she is the jockey to follow across the afternoon.

Her first ride of the afternoon comes in the Conditions Stakes for the juveniles and Action Point was a winner on debut and looks to be a well bred son of Blue Point. He could improve again.

The jockeys big ride of the afternoon comes in the Sagaro Stakes with Trueshan looking to get back to winning ways and he should strip much fitter for his first run of the term.

Doyle has a live chance in the Group Three Commonwealth Cup Trial with Bradsell for Archie Watson a Group Two Coventry Stakes winner and if fit and well after his setback, his course and distance form is rock solid.

Other rides of interest for the Hollie Doyle on the afternoon come from Tempus in the Listed Paradise Stakes and Rambuso Creek in the lucky last.
