Newbury Betfair Hurdle

A cracking week for profit on the blog last week with Dancing Shadow and Diego Du Charmil both going in. The ground is obviously key for the latter and I’ve always thought he was a decent horse and he win easily last week. I thought the softer ground would have helped Sandy Beach last week but he toiled in it! He has a good handicap in him Im sure!

Not much value today but some cracking races for the festival. I expect both Altior and my Gold Cup fancy Native River to win. 

My biggest fancy today is VEINARD in the Betfair Hurdle. He is still a novice but has been running some good races and he just got hampered at the wrong time at Leopardstown in good race. He travels strongly and should get a decent pace with Clyne at the front. The ground will suit and he is racing of a very nice weight. He looked to move very well last time and I can see him creeping into this up the Newbury straight. 10-1 in places and he’s a cracking win bet.

VIEUX LILLE is my other selection today. He has been progressing well and seeming to get better and more experienced with every run. He finished second behind a well handicapped YALA ENKI last time and he goes off the same mark today. Not great value but worth a bet at 3-1.
