Trainer To Follow - Aidan O'Brien

It's no secret that the Ballydoyle outfit is one of the strongest organisations in the world, Aidan O'Brien is arguably the best trainer on planet Earth.

He's just getting going this season, having 4 winners from 9 runners (at time of writing) thus far which puts him at a 44% strike rate.

With valuable races to be won, and eye wateringly well bred horses re-appearing, this meeting could well put Aidan O'Brien on the front foot early, with the Guineas now not too far away.

It's worth watching some of his horses like Contarelli Chapel (Caravaggio x Chenchikova) tackling the 7f 1000 Guineas Trial (G3) with a view to the spring classics.

Jockey To Follow - Colin Keane

Last year's record breaking Champion Jockey, Colin Keane appears to be going from strength to strength, season upon season.

Having notched up multiple group winners last season he'll look to get the ball rolling again immediately with Listed, and group races up for grabs.

He has a good book of rides including two strong favourites in Dr Zempf, and Sacred Bridge.

In and around the 13% strike rate this year thus far, Colin will be eager to get more winners on the board today, and he has a superb chance of doing so.
