Last week’s tip was a no goer as Brain Power was withdrawn from the Contenders Hurdle to enable his stable companion to take the prize which he did, easily; a tip in its self.
This Saturday’s card at Newbury is a feast of class runners, some of who will be having their final prep before next month’s Cheltenham Festival.
We fancy three horses this week.
Tobefair at 3/1 in the Betfair Cash Out Hurdle must be backed until he is beaten……this horse keeps on defying the handicapper like no other!
In the big one,The Betfair Hurdle (the Schweppes) as us old timers call it, we like the vastly improved Clyne at 6/1. This horse gave the New One a scare at Haydock after previously winning the “fog” race at Haydock. Our only reservation is that the horse seems to lap it up at Haydock;let’s see.
Finally we must back our old favourite Native River at 1/1 in the Denman against another good un Bristol De Mai. What a great renewal to honour the mighty Denman.
