This weekend there is some great racing in England and we have pinpointed a selection at Newbury in the Grade Three Betfair Hurdle that has big place claims from an ante-post stand point.

At a boosted each way price of 6/1, JPR One for Colin Tizzard looks to be a great bet in the event on Saturday, with us expecting him not to be as big as that come the off.

The exciting five year old has been seen three times in his career, all over hurdles, making his debut in November at Exeter when seeing off the likeable I Am Maximus and Luttrell Lad in an 18 runner Novices' Hurdle.

Looking to back that up he went to Cheltenham in a smaller fielded event that still held some good talent and he was an ulnucky loser back in second.

In January when last seen he got back to winning ways in taking style at Taunton in a Novices' Hurdle over 2m3f, staying out the further trip well.

Having that stamina coming back to Two miles is a positive in a race like this and stepping into his first handicap off only a a mark of 130 is another bonus.

Should have a big chance if running his race and with only 16 entries at this stage we could see our smallest for this race for some years.
