2:30 – Intermediate Handicap Hurdle (Class 1)

Selection: Pikar

This looks like a cracking little contest over the 2m trip here at Newbury. The market suggests that this race is between the top 4 in the betting. The one I am drawn too is the unexposed Pikar for the Skelton stable. With just the four races under his belt there is a lot more to come from the son of Masterstroke. Last time out at Cheltenham four weeks ago Pikar got off the mark over hurdles in good fashion, finishing his race off well up the famous hill. The form of that race has been boosted by the fourth winning by a good distance next time out. The Skelton’s obviously think quite highly of Pikar as he has run in some nice races including Novice Hurdle Grade 2s at Cheltenham and Haydock. The winners of those races where I Like To Move It and Jonbon. Despite falling at Cheltenham that day he was far from disgraced behind Jonbon at Haydock, beaten only nine lengths in the end. With the stable in good form and the ground in his favour I am expecting a bold bid from Pikar.
