2:20 Newton Abbot

The first selection comes up at 2:20 and it is a handicap chase for the Novices over 2m4f.  It is a wide open betting market with Mrs Miggins carrying 12’7 at the top of the market at 7/2.

The horse I am happy to chance at a big price is CHELTENAM DE VAIGE 14/1. This horse shown so much promise in 2019 in the point to point division winning four times. All be it, point to points are a lot different but I would have expected that form to translate over. He has been disappointing in his two starts this summer racing freely last time out which resulted in him not getting home. Fergal O’Brien who trains the horse couldn’t be in better form at the moment and I expect this horse to turn the corner sooner rather than later. At 16/1 it is worth a bet and hopefully that improvement comes today.


2:50 Newton Abbot

The next at Newton Abbot is an intriguing little handicap hurdle over 2m5f in which recent course and distance winner Doubly Clever heads the market for the Ben Pauling team.

I like PARODY 3/1 here for the Paul Nicholls team. He is also a previous course and distance winner and made an encouraging comeback run finishing 2nd last time on his handicap debut. I expect him to come on for that run and he runs off a lovely racing weight of 10’4 here. Top jockey Harry Cobden takes the ride.


3.20 Newton Abbot

The next race is a handicap hurdle over 2m. Pagero at 7/4 will prove popular for the Jonjo combination after winning eased down last time out to complete a double.

However, I like the veteran in this HALLINGS COMET 6/1. There looked to be plenty of life in the old boy last time out where he raced enthusiastically from the front but just missed out finishing second there. He always seems to run his race at this time of year and saves his best for the likely quick ground. I think he’ll bowl along in front again and at 6/1 he has to be an e/w bet to nothing here.


4:25 Newton Abbot

The next race is a 2m handicap chase that I feel is between the front two in the market. Peterborough edges favoritism for the Evan Williams team.

I prefer the second favourite here and that is KIRUNA PEAK 7/2 NB. He ran well enough last time out finishing 4th but he looked like he desperately needed the run. Now he has that run under his belt I expect him to be at peak fitness. I think his jumping will be slicker for it and I think there is more improvement to come over the next few months. Peterborough did win last time out but those behind that have ran since have ran poorly.


5:25 Newton Abbot

The finale is a bumper race and I am hoping Fergal O’Brien can complete a fine day for himself and for us with the winner here ULTIMATE GETAWAY 6/4 NAP. The horse is thriving at the moment winning his last two bumpers with ease. I’m expecting him to complete the hat trick here with apprentice jockey Liam Harrison claiming 7lbs. The opposition doesn’t look strong and I think he can give the weight away to this lot and complete a bumper hat trick.
