Who To Follow At Newmarket On Friday - 25/09/20

Horse To Follow - Kameko

The feature race on day two at Newmarket is the Group Two Joel Stakes and it looks a battle between the top two in the market Benbatl and Kameko.

We are going with the Andrew Balding trained three year old who having been a Group One winner as a juvenile, Kameko on his seasonal reappearance as a three year old ripped apart an even better field in the 2000 Guineas, showing some serious pace to beat the other runners which included champion two year old Pinatubo.

He was stepped up in trip for the Epsom Derby and with many thinking the horse would not stay and he didn't as he could only finish a tiring fourth.

Stepping back down to a mile for the Sussex Stakes, with two furlongs out he looked to be travelling the best of the pack but getting no run and running into other horses, he could not unleash his challenge.

He was tried last time out in a hot Juddmonte International where again the step back up in trip did not suit him and the penny has now dropped that the mile is the distance he should be raced over.

Trainer To Follow - Andrew Balding

Andrew Balding started the season off in fine form and has kept a good level of consistency across the whole season, but will now be looking to finish the Autumn strong and he has some nice chances on day two at Newmarket.

The handler has had nine winners over the last two weeks and managed to land a decent winner on the Thursday at flat racing HQ with Ranch Hand in the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes.

His big runner on Friday is obviously Kameko in the Group Two Joel Stakes, but he also has some other nice runners at decent prices.

Balding has had a fine term at Newmarket running at a 20% strike rate for the last 12 months.

Jockey To Follow - James Doyle

The Doyler has been landing winners all over this term, France, Germany and England and over the last two weeks has had 12. winners from 40 runners seeing him pose a 30% strike rate.

After landing a treble at Goodwood in the week he is in fine form and he will be looking to put his satisfactory record at Newmarket right on Friday.

He has some lovely chances riding for Godolphin and also Mick Appleby in the lucky last where he could land the spoils on the 9/2 shot Kattani.
