Newbury 13.20 – Dublin Four

Dublin Four has a few non-completions on his card and that has to be a slight concern, but he is a C&D winner whose record at the track on good or good to soft ground reads 11U, and his unseat came when travelling much the best here in April. He is very well suited by the demands of Newbury, and very much caught the eye on his return at Wetherby, where the hold-up tactics were overdone.

Newbury 13.55 – Walking On Air

Nicky Henderson tends to deliver at this meeting and won this race with Champ in 2018. He has a similarly exciting prospect here in the shape of Walking On Air, who looked one to follow when winning on his hurdles bow here in January. He couldn’t cope with Grade 1 company after a break at Aintree, but has been handed a lenient mark and is sure to be ready for this first try in handicap company.

FANCY A CHANCE TO WIN £/€25K?

Newcastle 14.10 – Constitution Hill

Constitution Hill can’t be opposed assuming the ground doesn’t dry out, and the fact that he’s running here suggests that Nicky Henderson was never confident about the chances of Epatante winning here, and if that’s the case, then it makes sense to include Not So Sleepy as the one for the forecast, as he’s likely to have the run of things until the favourite swoops, which is likely to be late in the day.

Newbury 14.30 – Theatre Glory

It’s intriguing that the Gerry Feilden was never under consideration for Constitution Hill, and I suspect that’s because Nicky Henderson was very happy with the shape of the race, which he should dominate. He’s won this twice with mares in recent years, and I prefer Theatre Glory of his pair. Nathan Brennan rode her well when winning at Kelso in the spring and is back on having been unable to claim at Cheltenham in Listed company. She looks well weighted, and can go close.

Newbury 15.05 – Oscar Elite

Oscar Elite is a risky bet here given he’s had problems with breaking blood vessels, but he ran really well despite bleeding when third to Corach Rambler at Cheltenham in March, and is capable of winning with a repeat. He looked like a run in the West Yorkshire Hurdle would bring him on, and good ground will suit him now back chasing.

Newcastle 15.25 – Into Overdrive

I’m not sure the ground will be soft enough for L’Homme Presse, and if that’s the case, then bottom-weight Into Overdrive can take advantage. The selection has improved away from testing ground over fences, and should stay this trip as long as the rain stays away.

Newbury 15.40 – Casa Tall

Casa Tall is a hopeful choice to outrun his odds as he’s better than recent runs imply. He clearly needed the run on his return and was given a considerate ride in the circumstances, and Tom George’s last ten runners have finished 1123232119, with the last one a 125/1 shot. Despite being out of the weights, he’s fairly treated on his best form which has come on good or dead ground.
