This weekend there is some great racing in England on both the flat and over the jumps but we have pinpointed a selection from Newbury that at the current prices looks big ante-post value.

Newbury host a good card of jumps racing on Saturday and one of their feature races comes in the Grade Two Novices' Mares' Hurdle over 2m 4 1/2f.

The horse we think has a big chance and currently boosted with 5/1 with William Hill is the Noel Williams trained Speech Bubble who holds some leading form.

Being a fair bumper horse last term, racing three times and winning on her debut at Ffos Las, she was then sixth of 13 in a strong event and improved from that when last seen on the level to finish behind the Kim Bailey trained Flirtatious Girl for the second time.

Sent over hurdles in November this season for her debut, she was a good second behind a nice type for Jonathan Portman and then up further in trip over this races' course and distance next time out she got off the mark in the qualifier for this event.

The seven year old was last seen finishing a very good second behind the Grade Two Mares' Novices' Hurdle winner at the Cheltenham festival Love Envoi.

Saved for this event since February, she holds a leading chance and with Jonjo O'Neill already booked in the saddle, we can only see her price getting shorter and at 5/1 can be played each way.
