Who To Follow At Newbury On Sunday - 18/04/21

Horse To Follow - Chindit

The feature race of the day is the Group Three Too Darn Hot Greenham Stakes over 7f and Chindit for the inform Richard Hannon team has a huge chance if as classy as he was as a juvenile.

The son of Wootton Bassett started his career off at Doncaster when landing a decent maiden and off the back of that scored again at Ascot in July.

The form of that race was been massively franked with the Second, Third and Fourth from that race since going on to win in nice company.

Chindit on his second to last run showed how good he could really be when taking his first Group race at Doncaster in the Group Two Champagne Stakes.

He was last seen in the Group One Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket when running no sort of race in classy company only being able to grab ninth, but he is obviously a top class horse.

Hopefully he will have come on a lot for being a year older and this looks a perfect starting point for the inform trainer.

Trainer To Follow - Roger Varian

Leading British trainer Roger Varian could have a seriously good time of things on Sunday at Newbury with plenty of live chances across the day and currently running at a decent strike rate always helps.

Over the last two weeks the handler has managed to land four winners from 21 runners which sees him currently pose a win rate of 21%

Also with that, he loves bringing his horses to Newbury, having 37 runners over the last 12 months and managing to gain seven winners and 10 places, which sees him running at a strike rate of 18%.

His main chances across the day look to Zaajirah in the feature Group Three Fred Darling Stakes and Legion Of Honour in the Group Three Greenham Stakes

Jockey To Follow - Jim Crowley

Leading rider Jim Crowley could be set for a decent day at Newbury on Sunday with a handful of smart rides in the Shadwell colours.

One of his best chances of the day looks to be Al Aasy who is the current favourite for the Group Three John Porter Stakes having twice last season.

Other big rides for the jockey are Zaajirah for Roger Varian, Mujbar for Charles Hills and Danyah for Owen Burrows in the Sprint Cup Handicap.

Crowley has been in fine form of late, having landed three winners from his last 13 rides over the last two weeks which sees him pose a 23% strike rate.
