18:50 Newton Abbot – Volpone Jelois (BEST ODDS 3/1 with bet365)
Volpone Jelois has won multiple times in France and been doing well since his change of trainer last year, even though he has only won once with his new yard. He had a good effort at the weekend, although that was on the flat and this hurdles mark certainly looks generous. I backed Floresco to win this last year at a price of 14/1 but he has looked out of his depth since then. Another danger according the market, Brotherly Company, hasn’t been a danger since his two wins on the spin last year. This looks like a rather weak Class 3 race and I definitely like this horse’s chances looking at the form and the ratings in this race. It also helps that he’s won on this going before and has a good jockey in Sam Twiston-Davies on board.
A £20 total stake returns £80 with bet365.
