Who To Follow At Newmarket On Thursday - 15/04/21

Horse To Follow - Master Of The Seas

The feature race of the day is the Group Three Craven Stakes and our selection in the mile event is the Godolphin owned Master Of The Seas.

The three year old has been seen three times during his career, making his debut in June at Newmarket over seven furlongs and getting off the mark in good style.

He then went into the Group Two Superlative Stakes over the same course and distance and beat a smart field by three lengths.

Trying to keep his unbeaten juvenile record he went to the Curragh for the Group One Vincent O'Brien National Stakes and finished a stellar fourth behind the best of the Irish, that have all since franked the form in the Dewhurst Stakes.

The colt was last seen at Meydan in February having his first run of the season in a Listed event over a mile and he finished a good second behind stablemate Naval Crown.

He will come on a bunch for that run and having handled this track in the past he looks sure to run a big race, with the trainer also landing this race in 2018.

Trainer To Follow - Charles Hills

Trainer Charles Hills has made a superb start to the flat season landing some nice winners and on Thursday he can add to that with some good chances.

One of his best chances across the day comes in the lucky last where he fields Crossford who got off the mark in fine style for the first time on October and should improve for that dropping into a handicap.

Hills over the last two weeks has fielded 10 horses and three of them have gone on to win which sees him currently running at a strike rate of 30%.

Jockey To Follow - Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore is one of the best jockeys in the sport and is currently riding at a high level and on Thursday he looks to have a nice book of rides on the Rowley Mile.

One of his best chances of the day comes from the Ed Dunlop trained John Leeper with the two not renowned for linking up and the three year old will be looking to come on from his impressive debut.

Moore also rides for Charles Hills in the last on Crossford, who is another that is looking to build on the promise of his last run.

The rider has been in fine form ahead of tomorrow's card with three winners from his last 14 rides and that sees hime pose a 22% strike rate.
