DERBY winners Charlie Appleby and William Buick team up at Yarmouth this afternoon where newcomer ASSEMBLY OF TRUTH (nap, 2.30) looks the best bet of the day.

In a race for juveniles that have never run, the beautifully-bred daughter of Shamardal can take this for a yard that has a 25 per cent strike rate with its two-year-olds here in recent years.

William Haggas has a similarly impressive wins-to-runs ratio with his youngsters and supplies the main danger in the shape of Swiss Air.

At Newbury I’m taking another debutant, DAAFR (nb, 1.20) to see off his 15 rivals in the opener.

Daafr’s pedigree suggests the colt is bred to be smart and his purchase price of 350,000 euros backs up that assertion. Add in the fact that Daafr’s trainer John Godsen has unleashed some quality two-year-olds recently and you have the basis for a decent bet.

Staying at Newbury, SEA OF CLASS (treble, 2.55) can score in the hands of James Doyle in the Listed race over a mile and a quarter.

Sea Of Class won a similar event here last month and is clearly an improving filly.
