A Nice looking card awaits at Newbury Today.
The first race is a juvenile hurdle and the field seems weak on paper. I’m siding with the former Irish flat performer SEVENTH SIGN who won 3 on the bounce in august over 1m6f off a mark of 79 the highest in the field. Alan King has a good record in maidens and I can see this running well —-
SEVENTH SIGN 1 POINT WIN @ 13/8 (BETFAIR)
The 1.20 Is an interesting looking race a Novice Chase. I’m siding with the forecasted second favourite here COLOUR SQUADRON. This horse was beaten a short head by Captain Conan last season and was unlucky to have the saddle slip on its chase debut this season which I believe greatly affected its finishing position 2nd. The favourite hails from the Nicholls yard and was placed in a G1 in France recently but that was over much farther and it found little when put under pressure its a young and inexperienced horse in my view.
COLOUR SQUADRON 1 POINT WIN @7/4 (BETFAIR)
