Ten To Follow 06.03.2019

This week includes:

  • Action from Doncaster, Kelso and Newbury 
  • Another winner for the in-form Paul Nicholls

With a lot of the most popular Ten To Follow horses waiting for The Festival it has been a fairly quiet week for players. The four point scoring opportunities all came on Saturday and were split between Kelso, Doncaster and Newbury.

The action at Kelso started with an upset as the popular duo of Black Corton and Bryony Frost were bested by the Nigel-Twiston Davies trained Blue Flight and jockey Callum Bewley. Black Corton lacked fluency over the fences which allowed Blue Flight to take the lead between the last two and stay on gamely to win by ½ length. Next up at Kelso was a Grade 2 hurdles race which was won in good style by Rouge Vif who made every yard of the running, and looks set to head to Aintree in April.

Down in England there was a listed race at Doncaster where the Oliver Sherwood trained Papagana got the better of rival Danse Idol to take the prize. Finally, Newbury played host to a Grade 3 chase which saw San Benedeto bounce back to form to take the feature race for Paul Nicholls.

However, none of these four horses were picked by any of the Ten To Follow players so no points were scored this week. Nevertheless, with Cheltenham coming up the leaderboard is sure to look very different in a couple of weeks’ time! Full standings can be found here.
