Racing TV trackers at the ready!
Multiple Group One-winning jockey James Doyle has revealed his five horses to follow for this season.
“Hopefully there are a few stars among them and we can get back racing soon,” he told racingtv.com. Here are his picks:
Age: 3. Trainer: Charlie Appleby. Form: 2132
Watch what our experts made of the Autumn Stakes
He was second in the Autumn Stakes at Newmarket on his final run of last season behind a nice horse of Saeed Bin Suroor’s [Military March]. The pair of them drew clear.
He’s a half-brother to Telecaster, rated 112 and has always shown us a lot at home.
We are hoping that he can step up his game and improve even on that rating this season.
Age: 3. Trainer: William Haggas. Form: 11
He’s owned by Sheikh Ahmed, rated 95 and is unbeaten in his two starts. I thought he was very impressive at York on his last start [in July, when he won a novice median auction stakes] and I’m very much looking forward to him.
Age: 3. Trainer: Charlie Appleby. Form: 11
He’s got a great pedigree – he’s by Dubawi out of J Wonder. He was unbeaten at two. I also saw him this morning and he looks fantastic. We are looking forward to him.
Age: 3. Trainer: Charlie Appleby. Form: 111111
The Verdict: How good was Pinatubo when landing the National Stakes?
He’s a pretty obvious selection. We saw what he was made of at two and, luckily, I was able to feel what was capable of [when riding him in his first four races]. He’s a worthy favourite for the 2000 Guineas.
I saw him this morning and he looks outstanding and so we are all looking forward to seeing him back on the track.
Age: 3. Trainer: Hugo Palmer. Form: 112
Listen to what Hugo Palmer said after Powerful Breeze's narrow Fillies' Mile defeat
She won nicely up at Doncaster [in the May Hill Stakes after winning on her debut at Newmarket] and it was a gutting defeat in the Fillies’ Mile, where she just got picked off late by a very good filly in Quadrilateral, who is favourite for the Guineas.
Unfortunately, she sustained an injury during the winter out on the gallops [suffered some broken ribs] but hopefully she can get back into the swing of things and have a nice campaign possibly towards the back end of the season.
