Roger Varian certainly had strength in depth in the 2020 campaign, with 12 individual winners at Listed or Group level last term.

He's already warmed up for the season ahead with seconds in the Group 3 Pavilion Stakes courtesy of Saint Lawrence and a in the Paradise Stakes thanks to Prince Eiji, so he could have another impressive season.

Outside of his own yard though, the Newmarket handler has his eye on 10 other horses as far as the Tote Ten To Follow is concerned.

Roger shares his stable for the competition below...

Palace Pier

A high-class three-year-old miler staying in training at four is always one to note.

Al Aasy

He looked very good in winning the Group 3 John Porter at Newbury. He could be a strong contender for top honours over a mile-and-a-half in the Autumn.

Al Aasy

Thunder Moon

He left a lasting impression winning the Group 1 National Stakes on only his second start, and still finished a close third on unfavourable soft ground in the Dewhurst.

Tiger Moth

A huge effort to nearly win the Melbourne Cup on just his fifth career start and looks like he wouldn’t mind dropping in trip if necessary.


An interesting unexposed horse in the sprinting division and easy to forgive him his final run last season.



Cemented a fantastic partnership with David Egan early this year and looks to have the potential to be considered the best horse in the world.


A very strong galloper with more than a hint of class about him, he’ll be hard to pass in the top staying races.

Snow Lantern

She looked very good in a strong Maiden on her reappearance and looks sure to make her mark in fillies races at the top level from 8-10f.

Snow Lantern

Sea Empress

Beat a very nice one of ours at Newcastle and looks a lively Oaks candidate, but with the pace for 10 furlongs as well.


Impeccably-bred brother to Kew Gardens who could have any amount of improvement in him at a mile-and-a-half.
