15:50 Newbury

It may seem very obvious just looking at the jockeys silks but the black and green colours of owner Mrs Patricia Pugh have scooped the headlines for the past few years. It’s highly unlikely that Alph is going to live up to stablemate Altior’s excerpts but he’s been found a race that, on paper, looks pretty easy for him to shake off his maiden tag. A very encouraging second placed effort on his racecourse debut at Ludlow back in May should stand him in good stead this afternoon and expect him to go one better as he makes his return from a sizeable absence.

The Ben Pauling trained The Macon Lugnatic looks the most obvious threat after his second placed run at Uttoxeter in November but a subsequent sixth placed effort at Warwick on New Years Eve so at what level he will return is up for debate.

Newcomers Molly Olly Wishes and Midnight Glance are likely to be the best of those making their racecourse debut and will be the ones fighting it out for minor honours.
