Trainer To Follow - Ralph Beckett

Ralph Beckett has been firing in the winners of late and has some nice runners at Newbury on Saturday that could continue his good run going.

His first big runner of the day comes in the Highclere Castle Gin Cup Stakes over 2m 1/2f and Rock Eagle looks to have a big chance at this trip.

In the final event of the day he fields State Occasion who was a bold fourth at Royal Ascot last time out in the Kensington Palace Stakes and could back that up here.

Beckett heads into the event sporting a strike rate of 20% for the last two weeks managing to land nine winners from 45 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Tom Marquand

Tom Marquand is riding exceptionally well at the moment and on Saturday has some quality rides for his retained trainer William Haggas.

In the opening race of the day he sits on Alpha Capture in the Simon Munir & Isaac Souede colours with the €170,000 purchase making his debut.

The pair team up again in the Listed Steventon Stakes on Grocer Jack with the globetrotter having his first run in the UK for Haggas.

Marquand rides Great Ambassador in the feature Group Three Hackwood Stakes with the gelding needing to bounce back to form and then in the Weatherbys Super Sprint Stakes he rides the David O'Meara trained Not For Profit.
