Each Way – Lucky 15:
- Star Rider – Newbury – 2.30
- Prairie Town – Ayr – 2.40
- Calipto – Ayr – 3.50
- Bowson Fred – Newbury – 4.40
Star Rider has Jimmy Fortune on board and is a strong stayer who was still progressing last year. Has gone on to win over hurdles since last running on the Flat and can land this.
Prairie Town was a C&D winner in a maiden hurdle in 2015, and has run well in some better handicaps than this since, including last time out in a higher grade. Big chance.
Calipto goes for the Venetia William yard and made an encouraging seasonal and stable debut when finishing sixth at Cheltenham festival last month. Can build on that run and looks a big threat to the favourite.
Bowson Fred looks well and was a close second on the AW last time out. Remains well weighted and conditions should be fine.
