Who To Follow At Newmarket On Sunday - 02/05/21

Horse To Follow - A'Shaari

The horse we believe will pay to follow on Sunday at Newmarket is A'Shaari for Charlie Appleby and Godolphin in the Listed Pretty Polly Stakes.

The three year old daughter of Dubawi has only been seen once in her career to date and what a debut it was when getting off the mark at the first time of asking.

She went into a Class 5 Novice Stakes at Newmarket over seven furlongs and on soft ground went on to dominate a decent field including Ready To Venture for William Haggas.

Getting onto better ground should bring more improvement on Sunday and being a full sister to the talented Wuheida, tells us her pedigree suggests she will suit the step up to 1m2f.

Trainer To Follow - Richard Hannon

Richard Hannon has had a superb start to the season and things could get better for the inform trainer on Sunday with him having some big chances across the day.

A meeting he has traditionally done well at, in the first he fields River Alwen who had some smart form last term and should be fitter for his recent debut.

Others from the yard that could run well are Posted In the Group Two Dahlia Stakes and Secret Strength who makes his debut in the five furlong maiden stakes.

Hannon over the last fortnight has fielded 73 horses and managed to gave 14 winners which sees him posing a strike rate of close to 20%.

Jockey To Follow - William Buick

The man of the moment William Buick is set to have a big weekend on the Rowley Mile, especially on Sunday where he looks to have some nice chances.

One of his best chances on the day looks to be A'Shaari in the Listed Pretty Polly Stakes having made a fine impression on debut and the filly should improve again for the step up in trip.

Other big chances for the Norwegian born rider look to be Western Symphony in the first race of the day, Posted in the Group Two Dahlia Stakes and Statement in the 1000 Guineas.

Buick has been in fine form heading into the weekend, landing seven races from 29 rides which sees him running at a strike rate of close to 25%.
