Kezbaah cut to give
Scott Newbury success
NEWBURY hosts the Hennessy Gold Cup on Saturday but it is the 2m6½f novices' handicap chase that has seen the biggest mover of the morning in the shape of Sir Kezbaah (1.25).
Trained by Jeremy Scott, Sir Kezbaah heads into handicap company off the back of a sole run over fences at Exeter last month over an inadequate 2m1½f.
He is 7-1 (from 12) with Paddy Power, 8-1 (from 12) with William Hill, 7-1 (from 10) with Ladbrokes and 8-1 (from 11) with Coral.
Snapping Turtle has been placed in all five of his starts, including third on his four most recent runs, but has been cut to break the sequence with a win at Newcastle on Saturday.
He is 4-1 (from 7) with Ladbrokes and Blue Square Bet and 9-2 (from 8) with Paddy Power for the 1.45.
