Tom Marquand has established himself as one of the best riders in the country, if not the world. He has tasted success at the highest level both here and abroad and is an extremely hard-working young man.
It is almost as if him and his partner Hollie Doyle both drive each other on. Their rise through the ranks has been nothing short of incredible and proves that hard work does pay off.
Moving on to his rides at Goodwood on Friday, he has a great book of rides on the card. Of the seven rides, the two most interesting are in the feature Listed races at the track, where he has two big chances.
Marquand has had three rides at Goodwood in 2021, and has won on all three. Incredible stuff!
A quality field of eight runners will go to post for the Height Of Fashion Stakes and Marquand is riding the most likely winner. Ready To Venture won her maiden at Yarmouth in good style last September. She then shaped really well at Ascot behind Creative Flair last month. This filly holds Group 1 entries, is clearly highly regarded and this is a stepping stone to bigger things.
Stay Well could be very aptly named. He was impressive when leading from start to finish in a Windsor maiden and will take plenty of beating providing he can handle a softer surface. Well backed on the day, the colt still has a Derby entry and he is an exciting horse for the Hughie Morrison yard. He should have enough to see off his rivals under Tom Marquand.
