The big contest of the day at Newbury on Sunday is the Grade One Challow Novices Hurdle over two and a half miles and Thyme Hill for trainer Phillip Hobbs is our selection to land his first black type win of his career.
The five year old gelding has been remarkable all season winning both his contest in great style and showing a clear staying ability.
He started his life over hurdles at Chepstow in the Grade Two Persian War Novices Hurdle and seeing off some smart youngsters that have since gone on to frank that form.
The gelding then went to Cheltenham in the Grade Two Ballymore Novices Hurdle and again put in a strong winning run to enhance his credentials in this division.
He was destined for big things off the back of his third in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and he has a very big chance to fulfil his potential.
