Betfair ambassador and trainer Paul Nicholls
Paul has four runners at Newbury on Saturday afternoon

Betfair ambassador Paul Nicholls discusses his quartet of runners at Newbury on Saturday with Betfair's Barry Orr and reveals Team Ditcheat's best chance of the afternoon...


It's a fairly quiet weekend for Team Ditcheat but they have four runners at Newbury and at least two good chances.

Harry Cobden takes the ride on Onethreefivenotout in the 14:10 and Paul said:

"He won well last time out at Wincanton having been disappointing at Sandown. He has a nice enough handicap mark here but it does look a competitive race."

Hoping Solo can run a big race

Solo carries top weight of 149 in the handicap chase at 14:40. Paul admitted it was not the best handicap for his runner but added:

"We are taking five pounds off with Freddie Gingell who is riding so well. He goes well fresh and we have just been waiting for better ground for him. We should get that here so I am hoping he will run a big race."


Two nice chances can round off afternoon in style

Next up for Team Ditcheat at Newbury it is Larchmont Las in the 15:15 and Paul said:

"She won the Listed Mares' Bumper at Sandown last year and has been improving this year. I thought 113 was a very competitive mark to go in this race. I'm hoping she has a really nice chance."

Paul has been keeping Regent's Stroll for the 15:50 at Newbury since he won on debut at Ascot.

"He's a well-bred horse from a sister of Denman. We have always liked him. I think he has a lovely chance and is one of our best of the day."
