Today’s highlighted runners…
Lantiern has been in fantastic form since his win at Lingfield last time out. He is ready to go again and this looks a good opportunity for him. Jamie Neild knows him very well and rides him at home most days. The ground is in his favour and we are hopeful for another big run.Harry Whittington
I am not too sure whether this is too soon after Fontwell, but I think he has a bit of a squeak today. He seems in top form though he might be a little high in the handicap still, but I am hopeful.Jo Davis
Capone should have a decent chance as he should be a class above this lot. He was second to Quel Destin last time, so I will be disappointed if he doesn’t win.Charlie Mann
Noel Fehily to retire at Newbury on Saturday
Noel Fehily has announced he will bring down the curtain on his brilliant career in the saddle at Newbury on Saturday. He said: "I made the decision yesterday really. Newbury is something of a local track for me because I lived in Lambourn for a long time so it fits in well. I haven't got anything lined up quite yet but I'll have a look at the entries later today and I'm sure there will be a couple of nice rides for me."
Saint Calvados may have a breathing problem
Harry Whittington is hoping a full MOT can help get stable star Saint Calvados back on the right track having returned from last week’s Cheltenham Festival with a potential breathing issue. “Gavin Sheehan said he just made a little noise turning down the back at Cheltenham and said we needed to get his wind looked at,” said Whittington.
