I hope that you have all backed plenty of winners this week. It’s definitely been a pretty good week for my betting tips this week, with an 18/1 winner to start us off on a good footing and a few NAPs have come in as well.
Tomorrow, we’ll be heading off to Newton Abbott for the Jump meeting, but first, some good news for you. My Countdown to Cheltenham series is going to be brought forward a few weeks and will start going live here really soon. So keep your eyes peeled, you won’t want to miss a single episode.

Unbelievably, there is only one Jumps meeting on Saturday, so it goes without saying, that’s where we are heading. So, I have two selections from the Newton Abbott card for you to take a look at and both have everything in their favour. There are no excuses for this pair and I think both will be getting themselves into the winners’ enclosure this weekend.
The opener at Newton Abbot is all about the top two in the market, Carrigeen Kampala and Father Of Jazz. Carrigeen Kampala runs for the Fergal O’Brien team and really is a lovely sort, who is progressing nicely. However, for my money, Father Of Jazz just seems to have a bit more class about him and looks like he will be hard to beat. The James Owen and Harry Cobden duo are absolutely on fire at the moment and Father Of Jazz is definitely benefitting from their skills.
He did well when he ran on the Flat, where he showed plenty of pace in all of his races. He travels nicely and also jumps pretty well for a Novice, so I’m convinced he’s a bit too good for his main rival here and (hopefully) he will be really hard to beat.
Even though there are just four runners in this Handicap Chase, it definitely looks like it should be a competitive race nonetheless. Mr Mafia is in the line up at the grand old age of 14, but don’t be fooled, he still has some racing left in him and he comes here already having won on his seasonal reappearance. I do think it will be hard for him to pull off a repeat performance at Newton Abbott, but he’s definitely not without a chance.
Reserved Tank was a big disappointment last week at Worcester, so I won’t consider him off the back of that effort, despite Sean Bowen being in the saddle. I think the one to beat here is Chief Black Robe, running for the Fergal O’Brien team, who gets his optimum conditions here. He won four on the bounce before finishing around six lengths behind a big improver last time out, but the over-soft ground would not have helped his cause at all. He is a really good traveller, a straightforward ride and the ground is perfect, so he has no excuses here.
