14:25 Newbury – Native River (BEST ODDS 4/5 with Ladbrokes)
Native River hasn’t been seen since finishing third in the Gold Cup last year and that form has worked out well considering that Sizing John went on to be a massive success after that race. This is only a three runner race and I can find chinks in the other horses’ armour that makes me happy with the price about Native river the dual course and distance winner. Cloudy Dream was well beaten in his last two starts and Saphir Du Rheu has looked out of his depth at this sort of level.
