We look at five horses which are worth following this coming weekend.
Ben Pauling's star will likely go of favourite for the second at Newbury after a 15-month absence from the track. The trainer is adamant the seven-time scorer has retained a lot of his ability, and tomorrow’s race looks crucial for his Cheltenham chances
Harry Fry’s mare could be a serious each-way player in the second at Warwick. She had an off day last time out and eventually fell two out, this run came of the back of an impressive win at Wincanton.
The 7 year-old was very disappointing when pulling up at Chepstow last time out, before that run he’d won back-to-back at Fontwell. He will be suited with the trip, and the heavier the ground the better, with rain forecasted in the morning he could become a big player.
Gordon Elliott’s 4 year-old will most likely go off quite short for the fourth in Naas, but even so he looks far to strong following a win at Thurles last month. The runner-up on that occasion has since gone to on to score, definitely one for any acca this weekend.
Good Boy Bobby blew away the field last time out at Chepstow, and is looking to win three on the trot for Nigel Twiston-Davies. He’s taking a pretty strong field in the last race at Newbury, but looks a good bet at 4/1. The 5 year-old is 16/1 for the Champion Bumper, odds which won’t be available for much longer following a victory this weekend.
