It is a slow start to the week and we have to wait for the weekend for some top-class action. Newbury is hosting it's two-day Ladbrokes Winter Carnival meeting Friday and Saturday; the Grade Two Long Distance Hurdle the highlight of Friday and the Grade Three
Ladbrokes Trophy Chase the main event Saturday. Also at the weekend, Buveur D'Air bids for a third consecutive Grade One Fighting Fifth Hurdle success up at Newcastle and is odds-on to do so already.
My first planned bet not till Wednesday at Kempton hopefully, it will be worth the wait.
