Newsboy’s best bet for Wednesday, March 2 is Harrow, Andrew Balding’s only runner at Kempton this evening. The next best is an Alan King-trained runner at Wincanton
HARROW has the class to fend off the threat of Blue Trail in the ‘Road To The Kentucky Derby’ Conditions Stakes (7.00) at Kempton Park.
The Andrew Balding-trained three-year-old has not been seen since finishing third, three and three-quarter lengths behind Modern Games, in the Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket.
The form of that September run has turned out very well, as the winner went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar.
The selection wears a hood for the first time and on his all-weather debut, the son of El Kabeir holds all the aces.
Former Irish pointer VALLERES won twice over hurdles from five starts, before taking to the bigger obstacles.
Alan King’s seven-year-old has finished third in each of his chase starts and wore cheekpieces last time when third behind Grumpy Charlie at Newbury over the Christmas period.
With the same headgear and a 3lb drop over two and a half miles in a competitive Join Racing TV Now! Handicap Chase at Wincanton (2.30), he gets the nod.
