Four horses who caught the eye at Newmarket, Beverley and Haydock on Saturday

Our man Harry Allwood kept a close eye on all the action on Racing TV on Saturday and selects four horses who it can pay to follow over the coming months.

There were some noteworthy performances across the five meetings live on Racing TV on Saturday and the performance of the day arguably came from Visinari at Newmarket.

Mark Johnston’s colt made all in a fast time to record an impressive debut in the 6f novice stakes which was won by Calyx last year en route to victory in the Coventry Stakes.

Time will tell how strong the race was, but it looked an above-average novice stakes and Visinari – who is bred to be suited by further - is potentially high class.

James Willoughby expressed how taken he was on Luck On Sunday by the performance of Visinari

Safe Voyage continued to progress by landing the John Of Gaunt Stakes at Haydock. His task was made easier after Sir Dancealot and Tip Two Win were scratched, but he travelled strongly and put the race to bed quickly.

He needs to prove he is capable of similar performances away from the Merseyside venue, but is firmly on the up and is one to keep on the right side of.

If you missed any of the action on Racing TV on Saturday, you can watch it all again for free here.

Here are four horses who caught the eye and are worth adding to your Racing TV tracker.

Rose Of Kildare – second in the Hilary Needler Trophy Fillies’ Conditions Stakes (2.00, Beverley)

Having lost a few lengths when stumbling coming out of the stalls, Rose Of Kildare did well to finish runner-up in this 5f contest.

Although she won her previous start over five furlongs, it took her a while to get on top and she looked outpaced for most of the race here on good to firm ground before staying on late and finished with running left in her.

She has won over six furlongs, and I think she will be seen over that trip next time out. This probably was not a vintage renewal of the Hilary Needler, but it would be a surprise if Rose Of Kildare could not get her head back in front sooner rather than later for her in-form trainer.

Lady In France – Second in the Betway Achilles Stakes (3.00, Haydock)

Lady In France shaped as though she would benefit from the experience when successful on her debut in a novice stakes at Newcastle, and stepped up considerably on that effort to chase home Maid In India in this Listed contest.

She also raced keenly at Newcastle, and did so again here, and five furlongs looks her optimum trip, but, judged by her breeding, is likely to stay an extra furlong in time.

She is open to an enormous amount of improvement and looks a useful filly in the making.

Nazeef – third in the Keystone Law & Rae Guest Racing Fillies’ Novice Stakes (4.30, Newmarket)

Nazeef, who was making her debut, was a major eyecatcher in this novice stakes which could turn out to be a useful contest.

She broke sluggishly and was in last place for the first half of the race before staying on nicely to finish a never-nearer third behind two fillies who had the benefit of experience.

Her stablemate, Nonchalance, was well on top at the finish and is an exciting prospect, but this daughter of Invincible Spirit is bound the have learnt plenty for this run and looks to have a bright future for her powerful connections.

Nazeef is also a half-sister to Euginio who excelled over ten furlongs, so there is a good chance John Gosden’s youngster will be suited by a step up in trip.

Holy Kingdom – second in the John Holmes Handicap (5.05, Newmarket)

Holy Kingdom fared best of those held up on his first start over 12 furlongs to chase home the well-backed Gravistas.

Although he was no match for the winner, he stayed on encouragingly and built on his effort when runner-up at the same track in May on his seasonal debut.

The son of Derby winner Australia is gradually improving and remains unexposed over this trip and, although he is yet to get his head in front in five starts, it is surely only a matter of time before he opens his account with more improvement on the horizon.
