Not on a good run at the minute but hopefully we can turn it around tomorrow.
First selection on the day is BOTOX HAS (Newbury 2.25 13/2 Bet365). This Gary Moore trained four year old signaled his talent with a two and half length second to Allmankind last December and has since won both starts, returning at Cheltenham last month to record a convincing win over The Pink’n – that form alone puts him in with a great chance here but I think there is more to come and the price looks generous.
In the big race of the day (Newbury 3.00) I am keen on SECRET INVESTOR (10/1 Coral/Ladbrokes). Nicholls reports having him in sparkling condition for this. We don’t want too much rain as he seems to excel on a good surface but he still appears to be improving and put up a career best last time with a convincing win over Potterman (re-opposes on 6lbs better terms for 7l beating). 11st 9 is a tough enough burden but the 10/1 is tempting for a chaser who could still be top notch given his conditions. Last year’s runner up The Conditional (10lbs higher this time but still progressive) is feared along with Potterman and Two for Gold.
