MOST eyes will be on the much-vaunted Kingman in the Solario Stakes at Sandown today. But the first day of Newton Abbot’s summer festival offers some decent jumping. The Listed chase at 3.55 is fairly competitive and fast ground specialist BOBOWEN can return to winning ways. He was very impressive at Market Rasen before floundering in the soft ground at Galway. Conditions look perfect today and although he has risen in the handicap he should run a huge race.
Today’s other fancies:
Alta Lilea (3.30 Chester): Ultra-tough and consistent, she could take some pegging back if granted a soft lead.
My Painter (4.40 Chester): Is well drawn and can follow up his highly promising debut run at Newmarket.
Fear Or Favour (4.45 Bath): A glimmer of promise on his debut and can step up in a weak race.
Fennell Bay (3.50 Sandown): A game sort who has the right attributes to get competitive.
