The feature race of the day at Newbury is the Grade Three Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap and with a decent amount of runners heading to post we have two big fancies.
Both runners come from the Paul Nicholls yard with the 11 time champion trainer winning nine of the last 15 renewals which is just remarkable.
The first fancy is Mont Des Avaloirs and this seven year old has been backed all week to land this event having finished second on his last two outings, with the latter coming at Newbury over three miles.
The step back in trip is exactly what is needed for him to flourish having just been outstayed at the start of the month.
The second runner advertised as each way is last year's winner of the race San Benedeto who has the handy five pound claimer Bryan Carver on board.
The nine year old finished a smart fourth over course and distance in November behind better horses than in this race and it would not be a surprise to see him go well at a track he likes.
