With 51 winners already in 2021, Cieren Fallon is well on his way to surpassing his career high of 63. That has been a short career so far, which already contains a champion apprentice title. He will no doubt have his sights set on the title itself in years to come, heading to Yarmouth for a single ride on Sunday.
Yarmouth is a track that has treated him well this year. A level stakes profit of £40.50 is notable, with a strike rate of 23% to go with it. 9/23 rides have been in the first three so it is clearly a track that he finds plenty of comfort riding.

Grenoble is yet to see the track, representing William Haggas who has had a decent time of things with his juveniles so far in 2021. Haggas has sent five to run at Yarmouth this year, winning with two of them. There has also been a second and a fourth landed from those limited runners. He has a 23% strike rate with his two-year olds this year, above his 20% average for the last five seasons.
Grenoble is a half-brother to the likes of Ipsolini who is a dual Group 3 winner Vivionn who is Group 2 placed and Playful Sound who was placed at Listed level. By Siyouni who was a precocious enough juvenile, he might not be quite such a late maturing type as the majority of his family are, with seven furlongs looking a fair enough starting point.
Most from his yard step up on their initial outing and he looks the type who will make up into a better three-year-old. That said, he is in a race confined to types just like him so there are unlikely to be any speedy or more forward types in here. A check of the market should be the best guide, looking a nice prospect come what may.
