2.30 Newbury – Paint The Dream – WON 5/2

Whilst he’s now pretty high in the handicap, the make up of this race could well be ideal for Paint The Dream, as either Numitor will make the running with Paint The Dream sitting in 2nd, or Paint The Dream will get an easy lead. Either way the front runners could easily nick a few lengths from the rest of the field who are generally ridden quietly out the back. Back into handicap company the selection will find the tempo of the race far easier than last time where he was a fine 4th in the Charlie Hall, so this represents a significant drop in class, whilst he’ll also appreciate the drop back in trip. He bolted up off 147 on his last visit here in a handicap and can defy top weight.
