Who To Follow At Newmarket On Tuesday

Horse To Follow - Hortzadar

Our selection of the day from us comes in the Pat Smullen Memorial Handicap over a mile and in a race everyone will want to win, Hortzadar for David O'Meara looks the form selection at 7/2.

The six year old has been running nicely at the back end of last year when being sent to Ripon and York over a mile and winning similar events like this.

Having slightly fluffed his lines on his two penultimate starts when running average races at York in a big field and the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot on Champions Day, with soft ground going against him.

Being off since October, he made his return to the racecourse in quick conditions at Doncaster in the Lincoln to finish a superb third behind Haqeeqy, who looks a class above.

Getting a mile on quick ground again off the same mark as last time out makes him a huge player if replicating the same run.

Trainer To Follow - Charlie Appleby

Charlie Appleby is the man you want on your side on Tuesday at Newmarket with him having a superb record at the track and tomorrow he is unleashing some of his star studded team for the first time this season.

In the first race of the day he could get off the mark with Magical Land who has been second on both his starts to date behind classy horses and this event looks winnable on seasonal debut.

Other big runners on Tuesday for the Godolphin handler is the expensive Noble Dynasty who cost 3.6 million and will be sure to turn out into a star and Secret Protector and Highland Avenue both go for the yard in the Listed Feilden Stakes, both holding huge chances.

Appleby has been superb at Newmarket over the last 12 months, fielding 100 horses and managing to land 27 winners and another 24 places, which sees him pose a 27% win rate and over 50% place rate.

Jockey To Follow - Jim Crowley

Jim Crowley had a superb campaign last season landing plenty of the big Group One events throughout the term and we are expecting to have another good start to the season on Tuesday.

Still the retained rider for the late Hamdan Al Maktoum, the team have a few nice chances on the da, with the stand outs being Mutasaabeq who is looking to stay undefeated and in the lucky last they have Rewaayat, who on form could run a blinder.

Appleby has been superb at Newmarket over the last 12 months, riding 70 horses and managing to land 11 winners and another 11 places, which sees him pose a 16% win rate.
