Gary Sears’ 16 to Follow for the Flat 2021

Gary Sears selects 16 to follow for the 2021 Flat season


AMSBY

Trainer James Eustace

Very lightly raced 4yo who has started handicapping on a low mark and is bred to improve when upped to 12 furlongs.


ELUSIVE KING

Ken Condon

Lightly raced and the type for a decent handicap. Worth a try at 8 furlongs.


FEV ROVER

Richard Fahey

Steady improvement as a 2yo and would have finished much closer at Longchamp in the Marcel Boussac but for being hampered. May be underestimated come 1000 Guineas day


FINANS BAY

Mick Halford

The sort to continue improving and may well prove up to stakes races as the season progresses.


FIVETHOUSANDTOONE

Andrew Balding

Seemed very highly regarded as a 2yo and when returned to sprinting on faster ground can prove top class.


GOOD LISTENER

Richard Hannon

Had a bit in hand when winning at Windsor and interesting to see what mark he gets.


GRAND SCHEME

Richard Hannon

Three promising runs as a 2yo and a mark of 72 could be ok. Mixed messages on pedigree as to how far he’ll stay.


GROUP ONE POWER

Andrew Balding

Ran really well at Royal Ascot and if gelding operation improves him should do well in decent handicaps.


IMPERIAL SUN

John and Thady Gosden

Bred to stay well. Guess go for a maiden then up in class.


INTERPRETATION

Aidan O’Brien

Very promising debut and when upped in trip likely to improve considerably.


KELMSCOTT

David Menuisier

Scope to improve as the season progresses and could make a pretty good handicapper.


MOJO STAR

Richard Hannon

Couldn’t have been more promising on debut, travelling strongly, and no surprise if he makes into a Group class horse.


MONSOON MOON

John and Thady Gosden

Beautifully bred. A big, scopey filly she powered clear at Newmarket and everything points to her being a top class 3yo.


SIR SEDRIC

Andrew Kinirons

Showed plenty of pace as a 2yo and possibly given faster ground should pay his way in sprints.


SURREY PRIDE

Joseph Tuite

Things didn’t go his way towards the end of last season but is pretty useful and is worth following in good handicaps.


TURN ON THE CHARM

James Fanshawe

Has a really good turn of foot and hopefully his running style will keep him ahead of the handicapper.
