MR INCREDIBLE.- (12:40 Newbury, 4pts win - 13/8)

I've fallen in love with MR INCREDIBLE after his excellent chase debut performance at Naas earlier this month, and although he has a bit to find on official ratings with Ahoy Senor, I am not really convinced of the latter's mark.

The selection did remarkably well to win on chase debut when held up 20 or so lengths off of the pacesetters and suffered huge interference when having to leap over a fallen horse. From five out, he ran just ten lengths slower than Captain Guinness despite having run three furlongs further and having carried 11lbs more on his back.

He is open to vast improvement now up to 3m for the first time under rules, and his excellent Maiden Hurdle run behind Gaillard Du Mesnil on rules debut recorded an excellent time figure. He had Magic Daze 18 lengths behind in that hurdle race, and that one has recently run a blistering figure over fences to give an overall look to his short career, a hugely positive one. He could be anything and probably should be backed for any of the staying chases at Cheltenham.

ESPOIR DE TEILLE - (1.15 Newbury, 1pt win - 14/1)

I am happy to take a chance on ESPOIR DE TEILLE here, who has been overlooked by the market despite having beaten Kalooki here at Newbury and Grand Sancy twice - both of who are shorter in the market.

He is an excellent jumper of a fence, and there's a good chance that he will improve for this longer trip, given he has been outpaced on occasions over 2m4f. He is very lightly raced for his age and is entitled to come on for his Chepstow run when a good third behind Paint The Dream.

That form has worked out well, with the fourth going close in the Badger Beer at Wincanton and the third running fifth in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham. There's more to come from him, so it's worth rolling the dice.

CH'TIBELLO - (1.50 Newbury, 1pt win - 8/1)

Andrew has almost put me off CH'TIBELLO, but I can't let him go unbacked at the current price, given he ticks all of the boxes dropped in grade. He has an excellent record fresh recording 3/4 wins off a break, and he is only 1lb higher than his County Hurdle win in 2019.

This is the easiest task he has had since 2018, and Harry Skelton on board is a big positive, so I have to give honesty a chance and hope he is not being plotted for the festival.

ANNSAM - (1.50 Newbury, 1pt each-way - 14/1)

ANNSAM is the cover in here, just in case Mr Mount is right. He is now 17lbs better off with Calva D'Ague for a two-length defeat at Kempton, where he shaped as though he needed the run on seasonal return.

He is only a six-year-old, and on the balance of his form, a mark of 129 looks lenient. He has reasons to improve past a few in this field and is another that's price is too hard to turn down.

GLEN FORSA - (2.05 Newcastle, 2pts win - 9/1)

GLEN FORSA must have big claims now fit from his eye-catching reappearance run at Ascot in a first time tongue-tie when shaping as though he needed the outing for his new yard.

That was a big step back in the right direction, and a perfect prep run for this contest and being dropped 1lb for it does no harm either. The handicapper also dropped him 10lbs for two runs. Those efforts came in the Topham Chase over the National Fences and in the Grand Annual over 2m, but it's this 3m trip he really wants to be seen at his best.

He is unexposed and proved he was worthy of his 150 rating when chasing home Oldgrangewood and Kalashnikov at Newbury back in 2019. He has had one other try over three miles when a winner at Chepstow in soft ground back in 2018, which suggests he has the ability to see this trip out, so he gets a confident vote.

EKLAT DE RIRE - 3.00 Newbury, 1pt win - 9/2)

EKLAT DE RIRE is clearly the horse in this field that could have upwards of 10lbs in hand of the handicapper, and the quicker ground should be no deterrent to his supporters. He was travelling well in the RSA before unseating his rider under similar conditions, and he has improved with each and every start.

He and Brahma Bull are the two horses in the field to have recorded RPR's of 161, and he is surely not done improving just yet. He hits the trends with a recent run under his belt, and with a prominent ride likely, he could take the world of beating.

BRAHMA BULL - (3.00 Newbury, 1pt each-way - 33/1 bet365) (use firms paying 6 places)

BRAHMA BULL is the second of three I like in this race, and the top weight has been written off by the market. Top weights tend to do well in this contest over the years, and his recent effort when chasing home Galvin at Punchestown reads very well in the contest of this race and is arguably the strongest single piece of form in the race.

Prior to that run, he had given Assemble 14lbs and only went down by two lengths despite coming from an unpromising position. Assemble is now rated 155, so a mark of 158 may not prove beyond the lightly raced ten-year-old.

ANNAMIX - (3.00 Newbury, 1pt each-way - 20/1) (use firms paying 6 places)

There are up to six places to play for here, so forgive me for this third selection, but I can't back one Ricci runner without the other given their form behind Galvin last time ties in so strongly together.

ANNAMIX gets the services of Jack Foley, who takes off 5lbs effectively, allowing him to run off 159 today, which puts him in with a big shout on the balance of his latest form. He will be ridden prominently here and could prove very hard to catch. Both Ricci runners are over-priced.
