Duke Of Navan weighted to strike at Newbury

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Duke Of Navan is on a handy mark at present and looks the one to be on in the 3.35 at Newbury today having shaped well on seasonal reappearance.

Nicky Richards’ charge was last succssful in a Listed contest at Ayr back in 2015 when scoring easily by six lengths off a mark of 140.

He has had just four starts since and clearly not been the easiest to train.

However, he showed that he retrained plenty of ability when a fine 1 1/2 length third to Baby King at Aintree last month having raced too keenly in the early stages.

He is able to race in this off an unchanged mark of 140, just 1lb higher than when last vicroious, and that makes him a massive player at the weights.

The booking of Davy Russell to do the steering also catches the eye and suggest connections mean business as he has a good strike rate when teaming up with the yard.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Duke Of Havan (5/1 bet365 – BOG, 1/4 odds 1,2,3)
