During the next couple of weeks or so it may be wise to consider the horses trained by William Haggas, Dean Ivory and Charlie Appleby who look very much one’s to follow.
William Haggas has made a fabulous start to the flat season much better than usual with winners coming all over the place. This very powerful yard has some entries coming in next few days which we need to consider. Tarte Tropezienne being one to look for and has entry at Salisbury and she will stay further this season. Kodinar look to be a little ring rusty and will be all the better for the Ripon run. Croque Monsieur looks an interesting entry for his debut at Nottingham… look well bred looking at his pedigree. Final Treat could show his opening handicap mark of 77 is rather lenient and he could wisely be considered if running at Nottingham. This yard is powerful and in good form so ignore them at your peril.
Charlie Appleby took the Craven Meeting by storm with six winners at the meeting… some form by anyone’s standards. Past history shows Appleby gets stronger as we go into May so keep a very watchful eye on Charlie. The trainer won with his first two year old runner at the Craven meeting and has Shellbrook another 2yo entered up on Monday and Tuesday… worth considering. Two others who we should be watching for from this yard are Sound and Silence plus Dathanna. These two horses should pay their way. Watch out for Charlie Appleby entries and actual runners. Should be followed.
Dean Ivory normally has a quiet spell at the end of the all weather season into the turf season but that’s not the pattern this year. Dean has some interesting entries coming up over next few day and if they are declared to run then we need to put them amongst our considerations. Spring Romance has been in very good form on all weather but has improved after a gelding operation. His turf form last season was nothing special but after this operation and his improved form then I am happy to give the horse another chance. Eirene finished third in the Nell Gwyn Stakes and could have a decent season in front of her. Olive Mabel isn’t expected to stay a maiden for long so look out for her. Overall Dean Ivory does well for the limited animals he gets into his yard… a very competent trainer who can bang in the winners.
