Newton Abbot – 21st October: DOM’S NAP + NB | Thursday’s 2 Best Bets

Read our team’s two best bets for the action at Newton Abbot

Newton Abbot’s NAP: NICKELSONTHEDIME | 2:13pm Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Coming up against a hot favourite, Paul Nicholls’s Oscars Moonshine gives lumps of weight away so Kayley Woollacott’s charge could be worth siding with.

He remains a maiden but has some decent early season form and was simply outclassed in a four-runner field at Cheltenham back in April, with this looking a far more appropriate contest.

Tom Scudamore partners Nickelsonthedime at Newton Abbot on Thursday afternoon

The form of his Warwick second this time last year has worked out incredibly strong and should put him way ahead of his current mark of 117.

NB: ARIAN | 3:23pm Handicap Chase

Her campaign last season may have ended underwhelmingly at Chepstow, but Phillip Hobbs’ mare is a former course winner and should fare better for the 7-month break.

Tom O’Brien has five rides on Thursday afternoon

She beat a subsequent Listed winner at this track last year with ease and the Somerset yard she represents are currently in flying form.

Kauto The King is a fairly inconsistent sort but won here in May so should give the selection something to think about.
