Today's Good Thing: Southfield Harvest

Time: 1:00 pm

Meeting: Newton

The Daily Good Thing Result

SOUTHFIELD HARVEST was last seen finishing third in a highly-competitive event at Newbury in February and could have benefited from a short break for Paul Nicholls. The Kayf Tara gelding has won on good ground before and might make a better chaser than hurdler. Sunset Showdown doesn’t have many miles on the clock and is likely to have had a tilt over the larger obstacles on his radar for quite some time, while Fox Pro might prove good enough for third. SOUTHFIELD HARVEST was winless over hurdles last season but there was plenty to like about his efforts and he gets the nod to make a successful start over fences. Fox Pro and Sunset Showdown are fancied to pose the chief dangers, in that order.

Today's Good Thing: Dragon Bones

Time: 1:30 pm

Meeting:

The Daily Good Thing Result

DRAGON BONES won twice in the space of four days at Hexham and Worcester last month and enters calculations, while Largy G was second here on return from an absence 22 days ago and should have come on for that. DRAGON BONES is thriving at present so is taken to strike again, perhaps at the main expense of Padstow Harbour, who looks sure to improve having made a successful hurdling debut under an educational ride at Southwell. Largy G and So Said I can battle it out for minor honours.

Today's Good Thing: Tulin

Time: 2:00 pm

Meeting: Newton

The Daily Good Thing Result

This should be all about TULIN, who is 2-2 under Rules for Paul Nicholls and could successfully give 4lb to the field under Bryony Frost. The Gleneagles gelding successfully carried a penalty to beat his main market rival at Taunton four weeks ago and seemingly handles varying ground conditions. Flamenco De Kerser was second in a bumper here last month and wears a first-time hood now, while Trailboss and Man Of Light are other potential improvers in the field. TULIN didn’t need to improve to defy a penalty at Taunton, but he gave the impression there is plenty more to come, so the hat-trick beckons. Trailboss and Man of Light are both entitled to build on their respective hurdling debuts and head the opposition.
