3.00 Newbury: Thomas Patrick – generally 4/1 & Sizing Tennessee (e/w) Skybet & Paddy Power Top 5 places, generally top 4 places, best price 20/1 bet365, generally 16/1.
As ever a very competitive race although Thomas Patrick has the look of a very strong Fav and can’t be opposed. Extremely progressive last year, he ran a cracker on his reappearance when 2nd to Elegant Escape. He travelled like the best horse for us that day and will have improved a bundle for the run. He’s also got a pull at the weights with the winner and with plenty of rain forecast will be very hard to beat.
A big danger can come from the oldest runner in Sizing Tennessee, although he’s relatively lightly raced for his age. His form when racing over 3 miles which looks to be his ideal trip is excellent and he has plenty of form lines with the majority of the market leaders suggesting he has a huge chance. An impressive winner on his return, he will without doubt run a massive race.
