Gerard Mentor – 7:00 Newton Abbot (11/1 – BetVictor)
Under the guidance of Kim Bailey, Gerard Mentor could continue to show progress for his connections in a 2m1f Handicap Hurdle at Newton Abbot.
The gelding has only made five starts over hurdles to date, with his best effort to date coming on his last start at Uttoxeter.
He finished 13 lengths off the pace in fifth, but it was significant progress compared to his previous starts.
The five-year-old has been dropped a further 2lbs and is still relatively unexposed, so he could well have more to offer.
At the price of 11/1, Gerard Mentor could push for the places here.
