We had mixed fortunes at Newbury today. A couple of fallers in the novice chase, a couple of odds on winners and a 7/1 winner in the bumper.
12.25 Alan King has won this race a couple of times in recent years. He saddles Ardamir this time, a winner over hurdles in France. He carries a penalty for that win but is a scopey sort and I will burden him with my selection. The Paul Nicholls runner looks the danger.
2.05 Three Musketeers and Zeroshadesofgrey were both beaten favourites last time out but both showed promise. My selection is Three Musketeers with a small saver on Zeroshadesofgrey.
3.15 Champers on Ice has the best form credentials and has to be the selection. Minella Awards is a horse with considerable potential and any market move in his direction should not be ignored.
3.45 Wait for me has impressive bumper form and should go well over hurdles. He is the selection. At a bigger price Bun Doran looks interesting.
12.15 Billy Biscuit.
