Top tipster Andrew Mount struck with 12-1 shot Galahad Quest at Haydock on Saturday and has three selections at Newbury and Uttoxeter on Sunday
MAGIC SAINT – 3.00 Newbury
MAGIC SAINT surprised me when scoring at Cheltenham’s November meeting as he usually struggles to get home up the hill, as he did when running there again in December on his latest outing. HIs British record on tracks with significant undulations reads 50257144 (1-8), compared to figures of 21F16 (2-5) on flat tracks, improving to 1F1 (2-3) outside of his seasonal debuts. He won his only previous course start and looks over-priced.
LILITH – 3.07 Uttoxeter
LILITH was beaten a long way into third of the five runners here in December but raced in the ‘swamp’ on the inside and it’s easily excused. She’s had wind surgery since and her trainer has a six from 21 record with his first-time wind op runners for a profit of £15.15 to a £1 level stake at SP.
HIGHWAY ONE O TWO – 3.35 Newbury
This time last year HIGHWAY ONE O TWO won the Grade 2 Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle at Kempton at odds of 4-1 where he had the 6-4 favourite Buzz over 17 lengths back in fourth place. Things haven’t gone to plan since for Chris Gordon’s six-year-old but he’s had excuses – twice failing to complete over fences and never getting involved from miles off the pace when sixth of nine at Sandown on his return to hurdling. That run looked very much likely a confidence booster and the best of his hurdling speed figures – notably a Raceform figure of 116 when scoring at Plumpton on his first run over obstacles – suggest he could be competitive today despite quotes of around the 40-1 mark.
