One trainer, one jockey, one horse and one race to watch on Saturday

John Gosden: could have a big Saturday at Sandown
1 of 1

Trainer

After celebrating York Ebor glory last weekend, John Gosden looks set for another big Saturday, with Too Darn Hot, who could have Classic potential, lining up at Sandown.

The son of Dubawi runs in the Solario Stakes (3.35) and, as a brother to the superb three-year-old filly Lah Ti Dar, there should be more to come in a race that threw up 2018 Derby hero Masar last season.

Earlier on the card, Gosden is also responsible for the Godolphin filly Laugh Aloud in the Atalanta Stakes (3.00).

She hasn't been seen since easily winning the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom last year and it is interesting that the mare has been kept in training at five.

The master of Clarehaven certainly knows how to ready one first time out. 

Laugh Aloud was a classy winner at Epsom on her last appearance

Gosden also runs Dive For Gold in the 1m2f handicap (5.20), and sends a couple of potentially interesting types to Chelmsford for their evening meeting.

The unbeaten Marhaba Milliar goes in the 6f nursery (8.15) and Gumriyah runs for the yard in the 1m2f fillies' handicap (8.45)

Jockey

A fundamental part of the team at Ballydoyle, Seamie Heffernan has been one of the prime beneficiaries of the sheer strength in depth that Aidan O'Brien has at his disposal for many years.

He has another interesting book of rides for the trainer at the Curragh on Saturday, which opens with Norway in the mile maiden (1.10), a horse who finished two places ahead of subsequent dual Group winner Anthony Van Dyck on debut. 

Seamie Heffernan has a full book of rides at the Curragh

He then gets the leg up on two-year-old Peach Tree (1.40), who is quickly turned out after running in the Debutante Stakes last weekend, and Hence, a consistent filly who bids for Group 3 honours in the Snow Fairy Fillies Stakes (2.50).

Fantasy, in the Round Tower Stakes (3.25), and Kenya, in the ultra competitive Irish Cambridgeshire (4.00), complete his mounts for Aidan O'Brien.

Heffernan has also picked up outside mounts on Maximus Daia (2.15) for Noel Dooly, and the veteran Maarek in the closing 6f handicap (4.35).

Horse

The Aidan O'Brien stable have undoubtedly returned to something like the form we have grown accustomed to this time of year in the past week, and their two-year-old Ten Sovereigns has arguably impressed most of all during that spell.

The visual impression of the performance he put up on debut in a 6f Curragh maiden last weekend was the like of which we rarely see from a first-time-out Ballydoyle juvenile, posting an exceptional speed figure to win by seven lengths. 

Ten Sovereigns is in a league of his own at the Curragh

The son of No Nay Never looks destined for the top and all eyes will be on how he progresses in the Round Tower Stakes back over the same course and distance (3.25), where he puts his unbeaten credentials on the line.

With any amount of improvement to come, Aidan O'Brien's colt can grasp next season's 2,000 Guineas market by the scruff of the neck if he impresses. 

Race

Beverley's biggest day of the year is headed by the Beverley Bullet (2.45), a Listed contest that sees some of Britain's fastest speedballs lock horns. 

Paul Midgley has shown an aptitude with sprinters and holds a strong hand, courtesy of Line of Reason and Tanasoq. 

However, Final Venture would be the pick of his runners on official ratings, and last year's runner-up looks to have a solid chance with Luke Morris in the saddle.

Connections celebrate with Take Cover after his Beverley Bullet win last season
The horse that edged out Final Venture in the Bullet last season was David Griffiths's elder statesman Take Cover, who backs up quickly after running a good sixth in the Nunthorpe last Friday. 

Two-and-a-half lengths behind Take Cover at York was Mr Lupton, who also takes his chance for Richard Fahey in a race that has drawn a classy field. A frenetic gallop should be guaranteed.
