Newmarket is back! The trainer and jockey combo to follow at HQ on Tuesday

Racing returns to the home of British Flat racing on Tuesday for the start of the three-day Craven meeting. The action is always competitive at Newmarket and is usually high quality, which makes winning races here hard to do. There’s one trainer and jockey combination in particular that have it down to a fine art. They combine four times on Tuesday and are definitely worth following. You can check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.

Trainer and jockey to follow

Charlie Appleby is one of the best trainers around and the Newmarket-based handler has maintained an excellent strike-rate here in the last five seasons. His 31 per cent strike-rate on the Rowley Mile over that period is hugely impressive and has yielded 88 winners from 282 runners.

Stable jockey William Buick is always one to watch and his strike-rate matches Appleby’s. With 101 winners from 312 rides, there a few better at riding around here. Both trainer and jockey had a productive winter in Dubai and will be raring to go.

It’s also worth noting that all bar one of Appleby’s eight British runners in the last fortnight have made the frame and four of them have won. Buick has had three winners from just six rides in Britain during this period.

1.20 Newmarket

Hallasan is one of two runners in the race for Appleby and Buick has selected this one. His half-sister won a Group 3 over the minimum trip and it would be no surprise if he goes close on debut here.

2.20 Newmarket

Broadway Act won his maiden here last year and will be suited by the step up to a mile, on the evidence of his third on handicap debut in October.

3.30 Newmarket

Bold Style was an impressive winner on his second start at Chelmsford in December and whilst this race looks a lot tougher, there should be loads more to come.

4.05 Newmarket

Creative Story has only had one start so far and he was a narrow second over a mile at Kempton in February. The drop back to 7f should be manageable and he can go one better this time around.
