2.25 Newbury – KARL PHILIPPE (1pt E/W – 9/1 generally)

The Fergal O’Brien-trained KARL PHILIPPE has form figures in fields of 11 or fewer runners of 1122132511212 (6-13), compared to P778 (0-4) and he looks very interesting against just eight rivals in this 2m4f handicap chase. He was a comfortable winner at Wetherby on his reappearance last term and his full seasonal debut record stands at 1121 (3-4), with the defeat excusable as he made a couple of serious jumping errors on his chase debut.

Coral Racing Club Handicap Chase (GBB Race)

SATURDAY – 2.50 Newbury – MIDNIGHT RIVER (2pt win – 10/1 generally) + ZANZA (0.5pt E/W – 22/1 Coral, 20/1 generally)

Now that the final declarations for the 3m2f Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase have been revealed I want to back MIDNIGHT RIVER, who I think could shorten considerably from his current odds. Dan Skelton’s eight-year-old ended last season with victory in the 3m1f handicap chase at Aintree on Grand National Day and made a pleasing comeback in the Charlie Hall Chase, finishing a 23-length third of four. His record immediately following a win now reads 24FP303 (0-7), whereas his form following a defeat stands at 3111F713111 (7-11). He can bounce back in Saturday’s big race – the Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Newbury.

Course expert ZANZA, whose Newbury chase record stands at 1114 (3-4), has done this column a few good turns over the years and is worth a saver.
