Here's a quick list of Pete's three picks from Newbury on Saturaday, May 14.

Chindit (15.20 Newbury)

Scope (14.10 Newbury)

Hierarchy (13.35 Newbury)

Watch the video or read the text (or both) for Pete's rationale for backing his picks.

15.20 Newbury - Chindit

Pete has spied some real value with Richard Hannon's Chindit in the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes.

He's swerving Baaeed and going with a big priced runner who has course and distance form for an each-way pick.

Chindit kept on well to take the SBK Doncaster Mile Stakes in March and here is snapshot of why he can do so again.

"This horse won a Doncaster mile last time around, ran really well in that race and while the form lines before that are a bit middling they were either each-way finishes or very close to each-way finishes and obviously that's what you want for this bet."

"Chindit has got a great chance of getting into the frame but yes, Baaeed is going to go on and win."

14.10 Newbury - Scope

Scope by name and a horse with scope by nature says Pete in the Al Rayyan Stakes.

A hat-trick hunter for Ralph Beckett, the four-yearold Teofilo colt won the Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp last time out.

Rob Hornby gets the leg up and here are a free reasons why Pete thinks that Scope is a sound bet.

"Scope has got enough, that win at over ParisLongchamp last time around was a very impressive one. That was back in October and they've picked up a win and some good performances before that as well."

"This is a field where you are trying to find the extra inch, the extra centimetre for each horse and I think Scope will have just enough to get the win."

13.35 Newbury - Hierarchy

Pete reckons that Hugo Palmer's Hierarchy can get to the top of the pecking order in the BetVictor Carnarvon Stakes.

The Mehmas colt was second last time around at Ascot in the Merriebelle Stables Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes and retains an entry for that lofty race.

The capable Cieren Fallon takes the ride and here is a snippet of why Pete is keen on Hierarchy.

"Ran really well here finishing second at Newbury back in September. That was a race where Wings Of` War went on to win but this horse still showed plenty of positives as well."

"Now since there there hasn't been too many runs but nothing has been too impressive either. I think Hierarchy has a great chance. Yes Tiber Flow is going to be the one that many are watching but It's Hierarchy for me."
