Who To Follow At Meydan On Friday - 21/01/22

Trainer To Follow - Charlie Appleby

Charlie Appleby mad a good start to life in Meydan last week and it would not be a surprise to see him dominate again on Friday.

In the first event of the afternoon he fields Silent Speech who is the rightful market leader having won well at Wolves last time out.

In the Jumeriah Derby Trial he also has a great chance with New Kingdom, who was also a nice winner last time out at Haydock.

Other nice types for the yard at Albahr in the UAE 2000 Guineas Trial, Art Du Val in the Al Rashidiya, La Barrosa and Naval Crown in the Al Fahidi Fort and finally Rebel's Romance in the last event of the day.

Appleby heads into the meeting in electric form managing to land six winners from his last 15 runners which sees him pose a 40% strike rate for the last fortnight.

Jockey To Follow - Frankie Dettori

Leading rider in the sport Frankie Dettori has managed to pick up some nice rides in Meydan on Friday and with that in mind is our jockey to follow.

In the opener, Dettori sits on Home City who looks a big improver for Saeed bin Suroor moving back down in trip to six furlongs where he has looked his best.

Another nice chance for the rider comes in the next event where the potentially smart Island Falcon is looking to make it back to back wins on his Meydan debut.

In the feature event of the afternoon, the Italian gets the leg up on Cambridgeshire winner Bedouin's Story, who now has the chance to mix it at this level.
