Our Picks For the Tote Ten to Follow

The Tote Ten to Follow is up and running for another racing season, and there are some fantastic horses to choose from for your virtual yard. Whether you’re a fan of horses who’ve already begun the racing season with a bang or prefer waiting for those running later in the year to sneak a win from behind, we have a selection that will appeal to everyone.

The Ten to Follow is a great initiative because it’s cheaper than putting bets on each horse and awards you for your all-rounder knowledge. Of course, if you’re feeling super confident about a horse in your stable, grabbing one of the many free horse racing bets is a good way to bolster your winnings.


60.2% of people have already added this promising chestnut colt to their stables, and after his recent performance in the 2000 Guineas, it’s not hard to see why. Chaldean has started off the season early, and it’s fair to assume that the colt will continue to put in some blinding performances. The St James Stakes ought to be his at the upcoming Ascot festival, which would net a nice purse for your budding stable.

Emily Upjohn

We can’t wait to see how Emily Upjohn arrives at the first race of her four-year-old season.

As a three-year-old, she had some great successes, including most recently in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes, where she dug deep to win by three lengths over Thunder Kiss. This result certainly put any worries about her crushing defeat in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes at Ascot to bed (she finished last in the field, trailing behind).

With three wins and a very close second under her belt, this filly looks hugely promising for this year. She’s already entered into five Group 1 races and a Group 2 for this season’s racing, and though she won’t be running in all of them, if she even takes home half, she’ll be a valuable asset to your stable.

Modern Games

With a first in the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury and a close second place in another Group 1 race at Keeneland, it would be fair to say that the racing season is already off to a brilliant start for Modern Games.

The Charlie Appleby-trained colt seems to be going from strength to strength, meaning his entry into the Queen Anne Stakes could very well end in a nice chunk of prize money. He’s already taken on the course in October of last year when he was a respectable second to Bayside Boy, so any fears of worrying and pulling too hard should be laid to rest.


Vadeni might not have had the most spectacular start to the season, finishing fourth in the Prix Ganay. With that said, the field was exceptionally strong this year, and Vadeni never looked to be travelling as fluently as he usually does.

He managed to score a hat trick of Group wins last summer, and his entries for the year look well-spaced and ambitious. Even if he took a victory in just a couple of days, he’d be a valuable Tote Top Ten addition.


Kyprios had a fantastic last season, where he took the title in every race he entered, culminating in an exceptional 20-length win in the Prix du Cadran. With a performance like that, this stunning five-year-old has cemented himself as the stayer to beat.

He only has one entry so far for this year, in the Irish St Leger, but we can’t see any competition for him to speak of over a distance of anywhere between a mile and six furlongs, right up to two miles and four.
