2:25 Newbury – Ar Mest
The Newbury card on Wednesday ought to be informative, and it provides the best of the betting opportunities on the day too. The novice races make little punting appeal, but the Book The Lodge Hotel At Newbury Racecourse Handicap Hurdle looks a race to get involved in. The first thing to note is that there is a great deal of early pace on show, and that means the race should be set up for a strong stayer.
The horse who catches my eye at a big price is the once useful AR MEST, who has dropped 6lb below last season’s most recent winning mark. He’s had two runs on unsuitably quick ground for Jack (Ralph) Smith, and although he hasn’t changed stables as such, is now under the care of Harriet Brown, who has taken over Syd Hosie’s horses in Dorset.
Harriet hasn’t had much time to get her feet under the table, but she produced Trump Lady to win easily at 40/1 in the Hosie colours at Exeter on Tuesday, and I think the yard’s horses are now worth following after a period of upheaval. Ar Mest has a record over jumps on good or good to soft ground below Class 2 level of 311U31, and kept away from extremes of going is still a decent tool. He will get this race run to suit, and if he’s back to his recent best after a short spell on the sidelines, he can go well at a big price.
