Recommendations

Back Presence Felt 13:30 Newbury @ 5.85/1

Back Third Intention 14:05 Newbury @ 2.466/4

Lay Kentford Grey Lady 13:20 Uttoxeter @ 2.186/5


Our first selection of the day comes in the third race of today's exciting card at Newbury, the 13:30, where we will be backing Presence Felt. The five-year-old has seen some significant money placed on him, moving from 7.413/2 in to 5.79/2. The Jonjo O'Neil trained horse is very lightly raced and has placed in three of his only five runs over hurdles with his best effort coming last time out when just beaten by a neck to Swinging Hawk who subsequently received a 7lb penalty for that success. On the same mark here he looks very well handicapped for his first success today and should finish ahead of his rivals.

Staying at Newbury we move on to the next at 14:05 where we will look to back the well supported Third Intention. Backed from a high of 3.185/40 he is now trading at 2.526/4. A useful looking sort who opened his chasing account on his seasonal reappearance at Cheltenham a couple of months back, he appeared to be in control of his last race but finished a disappointing third with the trainer saying a slip or two cost him. Trainer Colin Tizzard has his son booked to ride again, and has voiced his confidence that a step up in trip to 3 miles, over a left handed track will suit his runner, so we are hopeful Third Intention will get back to winning ways.

We move to Uttoxeter for the 13:20 for our lay of the day where there hasn't been a lot of support for the favourite Kentford Grey Lady. Drifting from a lowly odds on of 1.84/5 she is now out to 2.166/5. Her jumping may be the main factor for this negative drift as she wasn't the most impressive on her chase debut, being very cautious over the jumps when finishing a well beaten second after tiring late on, and over the same trip today she makes no appeal. Others are more interesting in this field, in particular Ballinhow Star, so we look to take on this favourite today.
