We have a great day of racing at Newbury this afternoon, with ALTIOR and NATIVE RIVER both endeavouring to show their potential as Festival winners. They've been there before, and landed the spoils - can they do it again?
ALTIOR is the one that troubles me the most. Let's be honest, if you looked at his run at at Ascot over 2m5f in November, it was lacklustre. The pace was not scintillating and the winner Cyrname looked like he had a good 7lb up his sleeve. Personally, I thought Altior was well below the performance he ran when winning the QMCC last March, and I think he's going to have to run in the high 160's to win this race today, and he's not done that for nearly 2 years.
Who could beat him?
Kalashnikov would go close if the race was over further, but not today perhaps.
Sceau Royal perhaps if he's at his best and he may well be.
It will be an interesting race.
For NATIVE RIVER, today's run will likely be a formality. He looked back to his best LTO, and if he is then he cannot be opposed today.
