Newbury 3:25

I’m going to go with 2 huge outsiders here with a min bet on each. Spice Fair ran a superb race at Ascot in the Ascot Stakes, and has travelled well in his subsequent races but hung badly left each time. He’s worth a risk that he may straighten up today and if he does he can run well of this mark. In addition Tuscan Gold was a decent 3yo staying handicapper who ran well enough over hurdles without setting the world on fire. He came back to the flat with what looked a reasonable performance midfield in the same Ascot Stakes as my other selection, and a few pounds down and a shorter trip might give him a small squeak at a huge price. Betfair place price is for 4 places which looks decent value in this 15 runner handicap.

½ Point win/place Betfair 70/10 Tuscan Gold

½ Point win/place Betfair 70/9 Spice Fair

3:35 Newcastle

Space War was heavily supported last time out, and not getting the run of the race ran a pretty decent race at Beverly. He has blinkers on today and I think the drop in trip might suit him along with a big drop in mark. This is his lowest ever racing mark and he looks a big price on Betfair of 20. Im going against my Followed horse Able Master here and he doesnt look great value at 5/1 and wouldnt have the best record of putting 2 runs together.

1 Point win 20 Betfair
