Newbury Rides

Tom, has four booked rides today at Newbury.

1:15 CARD DEALER Needs improvement if he's to make a successful debut over hurdles.

Owner Dan Dennis

Trainer Chris Gordon views, finished third in both his Irish Points and was then a good third

at Ascot in a bumper on his British debut against some nice horses however his effort last

time didn't show the same form. He is making his hurdling debut today having schooled

well at home.

2:25 NOBBY C&D third worked out well but soundly beaten after nearly seven months off last time. Trainer Alan King, Owner Ray Bailey

3:00 MELLOW BEN Fine third of 16 in Summer Cup at Uttoxeter in June and 5lb lower today; interesting. Owners Broadsword Group Ltd.

Trainer Chris Gordon views, This lad was a fine third in the Summer Cup at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good, Landofsmiles 4th) in June on his most recent outing over fences and he is 5Ib lower today. He wasn't disgraced over hurdles in the autumn and is definitely interesting back in

this sphere on a course he's showed good form at and handled well in the past.

The drying ground will also suit him.

4:00 ALTO ALTO Needs to improve on form shown in Irish bumper/points but has joined an above-average yard. Owner Mrs C New.

Trainer Chris Gordon views, This boy was 5th at Wexford (2m2f, yielding) last March before

being beaten 12 lengths and more in two Irish Points. He is making his British debut today

and has been showing a good attitude at home.
