Harry Cobden’s Planet Sport Bet blog: Regent's Stroll could be top class

Planet Sport ambassador Harry Cobden reviews his four rides at Newbury on Saturday, March 23.

14:10 (Newbury) Onethreefivenotout

I’m off to Newbury on Saturday for four rides and I start with Onethreefivenotout.

He’s been really progressive this season and has turned into quite a smart horse. He had a few problems when he was younger, but we’ve had a really good run with him.

He’s an honest horse who tries his heart out – he’s a horse I have a lot of time for.



15:15 (Newbury) Larchmont Lass

Next up is Larchmont Lass. She’s quite keen a type, so we’ll need to drop her in, but she’s not short of ability.

I thought she was really tough the last day at Wincanton where she won and hopefully she can come on again. It looks a nice race for her and I think she’s got a great chance.


15:50 (Newbury) Regent's Stroll


I then ride Regent’s Stroll in the bumper. He’s a really nice horse and out of all of our stores this year, I think he’s probably the best one we’ve got.

He’s got loads of size and scope and he’s bred to be very good, so we hope he can be. He’s a horse with lots and lots of talent, and while he’s got a penalty, we think he could be top-class. He could be anything.
We’ve got some nice bumper horses, but I’d say he’s in the top three of ours this year.

17:00 (Newbury) Fortescue

My final ride is Fortescue for Henry Daly. He’s had his wind done since I rode him last time. It was something I thought needed doing, so it will be interesting to see how much improvement it generates.

Henry seems very happy with him and I’m looking forward to riding him.
Some of these horses take a run to realise they can breathe again, so hopefully it does the trick. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he bolted up as we all know he’s got lots of ability.
