Who To Follow At Newmarket On Friday

Horse To Follow - Quadrilateral

The feature race on the Friday card at Newmarket is the bet365 Fillies Mile and Quadrilateral for Roger Charlton looks like she will take some beating.

This two year old is taking a huge step up in grade but has to be respected off the back of the ability she has shown in her two starts to date.

She landed a Class 4 in good style at Newbury on debut and then backed that up with an impressive win in a Class 2 conditions stakes at the same course.

Being a daughter of Frankel she will handle the soft ground and she has to be feared if handling her first crack at a Group one.

Jockey and Trainer To Follow - Saeed bin Suroor and Oisin Murphy

This jockey and trainer have two big chances on Friday at Newmarket with the two individuals flying of late holding superb strike rates on both the track and for the last two weeks.

Platinum Star goes in the first race of the day for the partnership and he is the most experienced runner in the field which could play to his strengths and he has ran to a good standard in the majority of his races.

He has raced six times with two wins and three seconds and on his only run at five furlongs on soft ground he finished a smart second at Royal Ascot which makes him a huge player here.

The other big chance for them both comes quickly in the second contest of the day with Final Song.

The filly has raced three times in her short career, getting off the mark nicely on debut in a Class 4 at Ascot on soft ground and then at the royal meeting over the same course and distance she finished third in the Group Two Queen Mary Stakes.

That form has since been franked with both first and second winning decent races and latest start at Newmarket when upped to six furlong saw her finish a decent third behind some excellent juveniles who have again gone on to frank the form line.

She has been off for 13 weeks but with the form line she carries and handling softer conditions she looks tough to beat.
