It may be ‘Super Saturday’ on the Flat, but down in the South-West the summer jumping continues at Newton Abbot, with a valuable card worth nearly £80,000. The feature race of the day is the Class 2 Handicap Chase with Tempestatefloresco (rated 143) heading a field of seven. Elsewhere, exciting Novice Chaser The Unit (rated 140) will also have a spin around the Devon track. It promises to be another fantastic race-day, and the perfect excuse to avoid watching England play in the third place play-off (although screens will be showing the game)!
As another fantastic season of summer National Hunt racing in Devon comes to an end, we are treated to a mouth-watering card full of seasonal reappearances in what promises to be a stylish Newton Abbot finale. Over £90,000 prize money is on offer which has attracted two Grade 1 winning horses to make the journey down to the South West in the form of Ballyoptic and Flying Angel. This is the perfect way to end the Newton Abbot season, and transition into the National Hunt season proper. Here I will be going through each race, picking out the ones to watch, and ultimately who is going to win (hopefully!).
