Newmarket have a number of meetings over the remaining months of the turf flat season.
The following three trainers have shown a propensity to take a number of prizes from September onward’s at flat racing’s HQ.
First up is Charlie Appleby who has Goldolphin ammunition to fire. Having taken over from disgraced Mahmood al Zarooni, Appleby has targeted the juvenile events and in his short time training has had much success.
The Irish combination of Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning should be respected as Bolger’s record shows, he sends some well above average juvenile’s to HQ to take on some of the best of what Britain has to offer. Since 2006 his record with his young brigade reads;
Don’t be put off by the prices as his runners, as they don’t cross the Irish Sea for the craic. This is best highlighted by over 50% of his young horses running placed. Parish Hall and Intense Focus both winners @ 20/1 with Leitir Mor 2nd @ 33/1, Zip Top 3rd @ 14/1 and Atasari 2nd @ 16/1 hitting the places.
The final trainer that makes up the trio is another young trainer that has held a licence for just a few seasons, Mick Appleby. This astute trainer appears to have a few of his older horse’s (4 year-old’s and up) well handicapped come the season end and early signs indicate that he has a liking to the winners enclosure at Newmarkets late season fixture’s.
In 2012 Mick Appleby was 0 from 1 with his older handicappers, but the last two years have produced …
Note from the figures above that Appleby is 0 from 3 when his horse’s race 1m2f or further in handicap’s although it’s probably to early in to his training tenure to know if this will be significant.
