Newton Abbot Sam Twiston-Davies

Three runners at Newton Abbot today, where the ground is expected to be good to soft. Sam Twiston-Davies rides all three.

1.00 - Season In The Sun Had his first hurdles outing in May finishing tailed off following three bumper runs which saw a couple of places. Has had a decent break and returns to a 2m 1f novices hurdle. Should show a little more now as he gains experience but may be best watched for now.

2.02 - Ballymillsy Still relatively inexperienced, he showed that he enjoyed the step up in trip when winning over 3m 2f at Warwick in February then taking second over the same course and distance a month later when raised 6lbs to 127. Fell at the last at Worcester last time in April when looking the likely winner. Goes over a similar trip today from the same mark and following a good break, has a good chance here. A good run expected.

2.37 - The Newest One Still a maiden after ten outings but has been knocking on the door with some good placed efforts, notably when 2nd two outings ago at Warwick in April over 3m. Didn’t go so well last time at Uttoxeter at the beginning of May but a break since can see him return fresh. The step up to 3m 2f can help as will a slightly lower mark and he can be expected to go well, with hopefully, a good chance of removing the maiden tag.
