New London

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
Age: 3
Weight: 9-6
OR: 99
Days: 65

The first selection of the day comes in the bet365 Handicap over 1m2f and we are siding with New London to bounce back to winning ways.

The three year old colt has been seen three times during his career, making his juvenile debut in October at Newmarket on soft ground over 1m2f when learning a lot on the job to get up close home.

Saved for his three year old campaign he returned over the same course and distance and beat off a nice type for the same owners.

Stepped up in trip when last seen with a view to the Epsom Derby he ran in the Chester Vase over 1m4f and was well beaten back in second behind Changingoftheguard, who went on to run well in the Derby and since win at Royal Ascot in the Group Two King Edward VII.

Back in trip to a distance he is unbeaten at and now in handicap company, he looks better than his mark of 99 and should get back on track.


Trainer To Follow - Charlie Appleby

Charlie Appleby sends a strong team across the three day meeting but the second day at Newmarket's July course could prove the best.

In the opener he fields Desert Order and Flying Honours on debut with the pair of them making their debuts and head into the race with strong pedigrees.

In the bet365 Handicap he is double handed again with New London holding a big chance at the top of the market and Natural world could bounce back to form having his first run since a gelding operation.

Appleby heads into the meeting sporting a 27% strike rate for the last two weeks, managing to land six winners from his last 22 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Tom Marquand

Leading rider Tom Marquand could be in for a stellar day on Friday with a handful of classy rides which includes some strong favourites in some good races.

In the opening race of the afternoon he teams up with a Brian Meehan trained debutant called Bridge who is a well bred son of Golden Horn.

He rides the second favourite Yonafis in the bet365 Handicap over 1m2f and then teams up with Carmela in the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

Marquand's best chance of the afternoon comes in the bet365 Trophy where Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes winner at Royal Ascot Candelford is looking to back up that run off 13lb higher.

The rider finishes the afternoon with one more ride on Dashing Dick in the Class 3 Handicap over 7f, who could go close.
