Worcester’s NAP: TASTE THE FEAR | 3:58pm Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Fixed Brush Hurdle Series Final Novices’ Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Local trainer Dr. Richard Newland toasted success with this runner at Market Rasen last time out, while he won at Uttoxeter back in June.

He’s twice finished runner-up at this track at other parts across the season so could well still have enough in the locker to take this now raised 5lb.

Sam Twiston-Davies takes the hot seat aboard Taste The Fear at Worcester

The winner he chased home here back in June won a handicap event over hurdles off a mark of 131 with ease subsequently, so there’s every reason to think the son of Mores Well could be ahead of his mark.

NB: WHEN YOU’RE READY | 1:38pm Fred & Mercy Rimell Memorial Handicap Chase

Jonjo O’Neill’s charge disappointed on his seasonal reappearance at Market Rasen back in May but that was a trip that seemed to overextend him and he returns to a mark on 1lb higher than when winning at Leicester in January.

He’s now over fences and that shouldn’t be an issue given that he finished second in his point-to-point back in 2019, while the drop back to the two-mile trip should be in his favour.

Jackdaws Castle are operating at a creditable 20% win-rate at the moment and their seven-year-old gelding is one of their two runners on the card in the Midlands.
