This lad could be Dashing to victory at Newton Abbot on Wednesday

And the Oscar for Best Tipster goes to...

Dashing Oscar


ITV is back in action at York and Newton Abbot on Wednesday and I’m hoping this blog will continue in great form after a magical four-timer at the weekend.

A lot of viewers’ attention will be on the big Oaks trial, the Group 3 Musidora over an extended 1m2f at 3.35pm.

But ITV are also showing the 2.10pm at Newton Abbot, a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f, and that’s where I’m looking here.

Many of these are iffy at the distance, and I’ll take a chance with the Harry Fry-trained DASHING OSCAR, who, ridden by Sean Bowen on this occasion, stays strong and is down in the handicap a fraction.

It’s a tough task under 11st 12lb but he brings a bit of quality to the event.
