THE TRACKER TALLY | Runners to add to your tracker from this weekend’s racing

The team have noted down three runners to add to your trackers from this weekend’s racing



Newmarket Racecourse General Tracker

Another weekend of flat racing has drawn to a close, with plenty of top-class competition on show for fans to enjoy.

In our new weekly feature, the team’s racing analysis is put to the test in The Tracker Tally where we try to pin potential winners down the line.

The team kept their notebooks to hand throughout the Bank Holiday, in hope of finding some useful sorts to keep an eye on.

Here are three runners that you should consider adding to your trackers.

OSTILLO (3:15 Beverley, 4th)

Under the guidance of Paul Midgley, Ostillo caught the eye in the final stages of the Listed Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes.

The six-year-old was at the rear coming into the home turn and it didn’t look like he was going to offer up much.

However, Daniel Tudhope kicked him out with two furlongs remained and he travelled beautifully, pushing past several rivals with a late push to claim fourth.

If he gets into a good position in future, Ostillo could well claim success over this distance further down the line.

BRUSH CREEK (1.15 Goodwood, 3rd)

With only two starts under her belt, Brush Creek could well have more to offer down the line for Henry Candy.

The filly was submerged by runners heading into the final two furlongs, but she found space down the centre and began to make some headway.

The two-year-old kept on well and ran into third late on, taking home some place money for her connections.

Her pedigree suggests she holds promise and she is one to watch out in the coming season.

SKY DEFENDER (2.05 Yarmouth, 2nd)

Sky Defender may not have struck since July last year, but he gave a fine account of himself in a 1m2f Handicap at Yarmouth for Mark Johnston.

The five-year-old was allowed to dictate the pace from early on and it looked as if the race would play into his hands.

He was left out in front by the majority of his rivals and it took a strong challenge from a useful rival to be beaten by a short head.

Sky Defender looks at a capable mark currently and is one to note if she is given the chance to dictate early on.
