Demon Fou – 3.40 Newton Abbot (16/1 – bet365)

Making his stable debut for new trainer Joe Tickle, Demon Fou could prove to be an interesting contender in a 2m5½f Handicap Hurdle at Newton Abbot.

The gelding has not shown much since returning to action in February, failing to finish in two of his three starts and claiming a distance eighth in the other.

Could Demon Fou get off to a winning start under Joe Tickle?

He has now fell to an eye-catching mark of 97 however, 10lbs below his last winning mark.

The eight-year-old has Bryan Carver booked in, who has a 22% strike rate in the last two weeks, and the gelding should be able to cope with the softer conditions.

At a price of 16/1, Demon Fou could push for the places at least here.
