Doncaster and Newbury Racecourse
Nigel Twiston-Davies & Team Twiston have two each to Doncaster Racecourse and Newbury Racecourse today.
12.35 - Count Meribel - Has had a couple of unsuccessful runs over fences so far this term, but returns to hurdles here. Possibly suffered of late from the handicapper over fences, though now back to the same hurdles mark of 138, this step back up to 3m 1/2f soft ground will be in his favour and a better run expected. Could be good each way value, Mark Grant rides.
2.20 - Monarchofthegrange - Ran a very encouraging race last time at Leicester, finishing a close up and staying on second on his handicap bow. From the same mark here and sure to have come on for that experience, must have a good opportunity over a slightly longer 2m 1/2f trip and similar soft ground. Jordan Nailor rides with a useful 3lb claim.
12.55 - Gowel Road - Made a very encouraging debut at Ffos Las finishing 2nd of 11 over 2m but looking like more to come. Over a similar trip and soft ground today, looks to have a leading chance. Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
2.40 - Redford Road - Showed good signs of a return to form last time with an encouraging run though a distant 3rd of 4. Looks on a decent mark here and can confirm that sign of a return to form with a good run and has a a good each way chance. Sam rides
