Betting Tip: New Horizons @ 11/2 with coral

There are plenty in with chances in the 3m novices’ handicap hurdle (4.25pm), but NEW HORIZONS created a big impression when getting off the mark at Kempton last time, the form of which was advertised by last Friday’s Fontwell victory of runner-up Kublai. The selection was scoring at the fifth time of asking for Nicky Henderson and there should be plenty more improvement to come from a horse described by connections as a “big baby who has taken along time to learn.” The 2m5f trip at Kempton was probably the bare minimum for him and today’s extra three furlongs should therefore be ideal, as is the ground. He’s up 11lb and this is a better race, but I’m reasonably confident he can go in again under the in-form David Bass.
