The 2m novices’ handicap chase at Newbury (3.05pm) looks a good opportunity for Shakem Up’Arry to bounce back and record his second win over fences.
The eight year old has always been well-regarded by trainer Ben Pauling and finished runner-up in last season’s Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle. Having unseated on his chasing debut in November, he got off the mark in great style at Haydock next time. He was no match for Minella Drama in the Grade 2 Altcar Novices’ Chase at the same course on his latest outing, but the return to calmer waters will certainly help and this track should play to his strengths.
RECOMMENDED BET: 3.05pm Newbury – Shakem Up’Arry win @ 11/4 (all firms)
