We had a nice winner today over at Dundalk, Mawaany advised at 13/8 finished strongly to beat The Invisible Dog by a neck.
Saturday 7th Jan
Newcastle 1:00 – Class 5 Handicap Hurdle (0-100), 2m 6f
This 5 year old mare out of Oscar, finished second last time out at Kelso in a Novice Hurdle.
The 1/5 Fav Kelka won by 7 lengths that day but the horse finishing behind Oscar’s Prospect has since gone onto win next time out.
Been given an opening mark of 100, so will have to concede weight to most (although Finian O’Toole will claim 5lbs) but I’d expect it to go close, now upped in trip.
Oscar’s Prospect, Win 2/1, 1.5 Points
Wincanton 2:40 – Class 3 Handicap Chase, 2m4f
Winner of a bumper and a class 3 hurdle, Nicky Henderson’s 8 year old makes his chase debut after an 8 month break, However having run well fresh before I hope that isn’t an issue.
Henderson has said ‘He enjoys his jumping…..should go well’
Clondaw Banker, 11/2, 0.5 Points ew
