Snowfall brings a Tote Ten To Follow points windfall for a lucky few forecasters

Snowfall and Frankie Dettori come home alone in the Oaks and had little support from Tote Ten To Follow players
1 of 1

Derby weekend did not pan out as many Tote Ten To Follow players would have expected, or hoped for, but it brought about a leaderboard shake-up as Adayar took the main event, landing 73.20 points for the biggest single score of the competition so far.

His victory brought joy to the 2.5 per cent of stables who had picked him at the start of the campaign when there was only his easy juvenile success and fast-finishing second in Sandown’s Classic Trial to recommend him.

Oaks winner Snowfall had even less to mark her as a Ten To Follow pick after an in-and-out two-year-old season, so it’s not surprising she was selected by just 0.1 per cent of stables. They earned 58.70 points for her Oaks success but the manner of her 16-length, record-breaking blitz suggests she can be a major player in all the important middle-distance events this season so those insightful few could be sitting pretty.

At some stage she is likely to encounter Pyledriver,  who battled to a popular win in the Coronation Cup, bagging 37.40 points for 4.5 per cent of stables.

Away from Epsom, Joseph O’Brien’s Baron Samedi made the journey across the Atlantic worthwhile when taking the Belmont Gold Cup, bagging two per cent of stables 23.90 points, while Lampang picked up a healthy 30.90 points at Hamilton for four players who had seen fit to include him in their stables.

While Aidan O’Brien hotpots Bolshoi Ballet (10.8 per cent of stables) and Santa Barbara (63.1 per cent) let down Ten To Follow players at Epsom, things were different in France on Sunday when St Mark’s Basilica landed the Prix du Jockey Club. Selected by 20.6 per cent of stables, he was the most-picked winner of the week, earning followers 30.8 points for his second Group 1 across the Channel.

Also scoring for the second time this term was Arc runner-up In Swoop. Victory in the Grand Prix de Chantilly earned 3.1 per cent of stables 22.65 points.
