Newton Abbot’s NAP: DRUMLEE WATAR | 3:10pm Happy Birthday Wayne Hockley Congratulations Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
Warren Greatrex’s gelding remains off his last winning mark and was perhaps unsuited by the drop-down in trip on his previous two starts.
He was over course-and-distance back in June with any amount in hand and his form with subsequent three-time winner Wbee makes very pleasant reading.
That rival won his last start off a mark of 120 by 11 lengths, so today’s Devon selection looks far from handicapped out of things only 5lb higher.

The son of Alqaahir is the most experienced horse in this field and ran a decent race at this track last time out.
That was a huge improvement on his debut and this is far from a strong bumper to close proceedings on the outskirts of Torquay.
Back in July, the hood clearly worked the oracle and that headgear has been added here once again with Bryony Frost in the saddle.
