Who To Follow On Sunday At Sandown

Horse To Follow - Billesdon Brook

One of the best races on Sunday in Britain is the Group Three Atalanta Stakes at Sandown and Billesdon Brook is a five year old still going in the right direction.

The mare as a three year old was a shock winner of the 1000 Guineas and never really kicked on with her career.

However, back as a four year old Richard Hannon managed to rejuvenate her and she got back to winning ways in the Group Three Oak tree Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

From there she landed the second Group One of her career in the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket and this season has been highly consistent, placing in Listed and Group One events.

Her latest second in the Falmouth Stakes reads really well and if the ground stays soft she looks the horse to beat.

Trainer To Follow - Richard Hannon

Richard Hannon has a big chance with Billesdon Brook on Sunday but he also has some really good chances with some other runners and he may be worth following on Sunday.

The handler has had a steady record with his runners at Sandown this term currently running at a strike rate of 14.29% with five winners and four places from 35 runners.

Hannon has a huge chance to land both the Group Three events on the card with the favourite in the Solario Stakes, Etonian has been seen once during his career and got off the mark in fine style over course and distance.

He looks the one to beat.

Jockey To Follow - Oisin Murphy

Oisin Murphy is one of the best flat riders in the world winning the jockeys championship last season and well on the road to doing the same this term.

Having been unlucky in some of his races at York he will be looking to get back to normality at Sandown on Sunday and with a nice handful of rides he could well do so.

Murphy all though not firing at York has been in stellar form over the last two weeks with 18 winners from 77 rides which sees him with a strike rate of 23.38%.
