Tom Collins takes on several favourites in his Newbury Placepot perm
Following a spate of cancelled jumps meetings, Newbury's Wednesday card has attracted a big number of entries with four of the six Placepot races set to feature 14 or more runners.
Hoi Polloi is the formsetter in the opening 2m½f novice hurdle (12.55) but he jumped poorly last time and the ground may also inconvenience him. I'd rather stick with impressive point winner Gallyhill and Robin's Dream, who represents the in-form Gary Moore stable.
The 2m½f handicap hurdle (2.30) could be dominated by two unexposed runners at the bottom of the weights in Heart Of A Lion and Naizagai, with the latter having hit the frame in every start this year.
