17:35 Newcastle – Dinaria Des Obeaux (BEST ODDS 8/13 with Betfair)
This horse is one that wasn’t seen at the Cheltenham Festival, but that wouldn’t have looked out of place there at all. In fact, the horse that she lost to last time out won the Mares Hurdle there, beating what was supposedly one of the festival bankers in Apple’s Jade. That piece of form is further strengthened by the fact that that horse that finished fourth went on to win next time out at odds of 12/1. She should handle the soft to heavy ground with ease and I’m backing her to improve for the step up in trip.
