There's a lot of racing lined up for us at Newbury on Saturday, and we've looked through the card to bring you the horses we think will be the best to back.
First up is Dusky Legend, running in the 14:35 EBF Stallions & TBA Mares' 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle Finale.
She's been the bridesmaid for a little while now, but her second place finishes have come against some quality fields, and she certainly hasn't disgraced herself against the likes of Tara Point and The Govaness. All of here recent runs have come over soft ground, which, although not hugely detrimental to her, may not be her favourite. Her one win thus far has come on good/soft and there is every chance that the improved ground she runs on this weekend may be more to her liking.
She's held on well to chase home in her recent runs so we're not too concerned aout her stamina, and she's weighted at 10st 7lb which looks perfectly reasonable to us.
The best place we've found to back her is Coral, who are offering a very tempting 11/1.
Following on from that in the 15:10 Ultima Business Solutions Silver Jubliee Handicap Chase we like the look of Tony McCoy's ride, Financial Climate.
After a rather indifferent end to 2014, Financial Climate has come to life this year, winning two from two over three miles at Chepstow and Sandown. The going was good/soft and good respectively, which bodes well for Saturday over similar ground and a slightly longer distance.
He's running well and looks game to produce another big performance even taking into account a 4lb rise. You can back him as short as 7/2, but we think it's well worth a trip to SkyBet to get a very decent 5/1.
Finally, we're backing an outsider in the 16:55 Doom Bar Barista Bar Chelmsford Handicap Chase.
Although Major Milborne is not out with the ten and fifteen to one horses, he's certainly not rated down with the 15/8 favourite Village Vic at the bookies. However, we think he's worth a second look. He has a win and a second place over course and distance in good/soft conditions, and with a 5lb advantage over the two horses ahead of him in the betting it's well worth an each way punt if not a shot at an outright win.
The best we've seen him at is a market leading 6/1, which you can pick up at BoyleSports.
