Team Twiston Racing from Newbury
With Newbury Racecourse passing an 8am inspection, we send three runners. The going will be heavy.
12.45 - Scarlett Of Tara has had just the one run in a bumper at Warwick back in February ‘18, where she finished down the field. Makes a welcome reappearance and her hurdles debut in this mares event having shown up well at home and though best watched for now, can show that she has some promise to come stepped up in trip over 2m 4+f today. Jordan Nailor rides and claims 5lbs.
3.25 - Scotchtown has shown some promise over fences with some places, notably at Sandown last February, but yet to get his head in front. Had wind surgery in mid-November and very hopeful that will help him fulfil that promise. Should be suited by today’s 2m 7+f and he’s expected to cope with the ground. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard.
4.00 - Fantastikas has had just the one bumper outing, showing plenty of promise to take 2nd of 8 at Southwell in early December. Looks to have come on plenty for that outing and with the form looking good, can again go well here. The ground was soft at Southwell so hopeful he can cope with the heavy. A good run expected, Sam in the saddle.
