Seven Days: Advance Appleby Fair

As statements of intent go, the results for Charlie Appleby's stable over recent weeks speak loudly as to his determination to retain the trainers' championship in 2022. Twenty-three runners have emerged from Moulton Paddocks in the last fortnight, and 13 of them have returned home as winners, most importantly Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), the champion 2-year-old in Europe last year whose triumph return in the G3 Craven S. got the season off on a proper footing.

Progeny of The National Stud's freshman sire Aclaim (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) had yet to post a breakthrough score, but that statistic was cast aside as Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's Cachet (Ire) powered to a taking debut success over six furlongs in Saturday's Betway British EBF Fillies' Novice S. at Newmarket. Breaking sharply to occupy a forward slot in second through the initial fractions, the 4-1 chance cruised to the front hard on the steel approaching the final quarter mile and powered ever clear, under minimal urging, up the hill to easily...
