My Lady Grey (13.30 Newton Abbot)

We've got a touch more information for you on Planet Sport's three main picks from Newton Abbot.

13.00 Newton Abbot - Gaulois

Sounding like the famous French cigarette brand, Gaulois might not smoke the opposition in the Maiden Hurdle but should get the job done for Paul Nicholls.

It's fair to say the six-year-old has taken a while to come to hand since switching from Shark Hanlon in Ireland but the Samum gelding has shown patches of form which suggests a win isn't a million miles away.

Conditional Tom Buckley takes off a welcome three pounds which should get Gaulois competitive.

13.30 Newton Abbot - My Lady Grey

Joe Tizzard has officially taken over from his legendary trainer father Colin and the West Country family can celebrate a win in the St Austell Brewery Novices' Handicap Chase.

The eight-year-old has been knocking on the door of a win for an eternity and can prevail in a relatively weak race.

A previous course winner and the distance shouldn't hold many surprises, My Lady Grey can get her nose in front under the experienced Tom Scudamore.

16.20 Newton Abbot - Wotzisname

Hunters' chases are normally a bit of a minefield but this one goes down to a straight choice of two in a match race Totnes And Bridgetown Steeplechase Company Open Hunters' Chase.

Wotzisname comes into the event on the back of point-to-point win and the former Harry Fry inmate has plenty of decent wins under rules on the resume.

If jumping well, Wotzisname should be easily memorable to backers.
