Trainer To Follow - Andrew Balding

Andrew Balding has made a decent start to the season and on All Weather Championships Day he has a whole host of good chances.

His first big shout of the afternoon comes from Newcastle with Arabian Storm in the Listed Burradon Stakes with son of Arabian Queen a very well bred horse.

Balding then fields Desert Cop for the same connections in the 3 Year Old event and the gelding will be looking to build on his win last time out.

Berkshire Rocco in the Marathon Condition Stakes is one of his best chances of the afternoon with the six year old holding the best form in the race.

Notre Belle Bete will be looking to hit the frame again having been knocking on the door of late and then in the Mile event at Newcastle Berkshire Shadow was a superb juvenile that landed a good Listed event last time out and this looks easier.

Balding heads into the event sporting a strike rate of 19% for the last two weeks managing to land four winners from his last 21 runners.

Jockey To Follow - James Doyle

James Doyle rides for a host of trainers on Friday at Newcastle and looks to have some big chances starting in the Listed opener with Dear My Friend a horse who holds a decent bit of form heading into the contest.

The Doyler then rides Danger Alert for George Boughey with the gelding winning two of his last three events and it is hard to seer him not going close again.

Doyle then gets the leg up on Nolton Cross who is another horse bang in form winning three of his last four races and the step up in trip should bring more improvement.

One of his best chances according to the odds on Friday comes in the Easter Classic with Forest Of Dean for Godolphin looking to justify favouritism.

Finally, on ITV James Doyle teams up with Joseph O'Brien on San Andreas who is a consistent performer on the all weather at Dundalk and having won well last time out will be looking to out run his odds of 7/1.
