Tea Clipper (12.40 Newbury)

Mrs Milner (15.00 Newbury)

Certainly Red (15.35 Newbury)

We start with the two miles, four furlong novices' chase at Newbury. There's a Tea Clipper ready to set sail for Tom Lacey.

12.40 Newbury - Tea Clipper

Tom Lacey's six-year-old was a nice winner at Chepstow last time out where he beat Paul Nicholls' Fidelio Vallis.

The Stowaway gelding prevailed by three lengths as joint-favourite.

Stan Shepperd gets the leg up and here is a snippet of why Pete is thirsty for the Tea Clipper.

"Tea Clipper is always the one for me. I fell in love with this horse after that victory in the Silver Trophy last year, could not get away from this runner and of course is being eyed up for certain races at Cheltenham next year as well.

Tea Clipper is going to be the way to go for me here, there's so much quality in this race but I think Tea Clipper is the way to go."

15.00 Newbury - Mrs Milner

Paisley Park is the hot favourite for this three mile contest but Pete is going with the Irish raider Mrs Milner.

The six-year-old was a winner of the Pertemps Final hurdle at Cheltenham over the distance in March which will stand the mare in good stead.

Bryan Cooper is handed the ride and the following is a snapshot of why Pete thinks that Mrs Milner is a far from boring choice.

"I think a very good way in Mrs Milner, barring a fall at Leopardstown a couple of months ago, the copy book has looked very good, won at 12-1, beat 21 other runners two runs back and of course was superb in the Pertemps as well…

The longer trips suits this runner an awful lot. I'm a little bit surprised to find Mrs Milner a bit bigger in the betting."

15.35 Newbury - Certainly Red

Pete is certainly a fan of this Lydia Richards runner who goes to Newbury in search of the hat-trick.

The Midnight Legend gelding scored a game neck success last time out at Chepstow and looks the type to go close in a large field.

Marc Goldstein is handed the reins and here is why Pete this red is a dead cert at Newbury.

"I like this Lydia Richards runner an awful lot, was a brilliant winner over three miles and change at Wincanton, had seven months off and came back and won last time like they'd never been away…

It's interesting, because at the time of recording, a very big price, so it might be worth considering each-way…but I'm going to go away from the each-way here and simply support Certainly Red to get the win."
