As mentioned numerous times on this page, trainer Dr Richard Newland is a man to be respected, especially when there is good market support for his runners and we fancy his improving and unexposed 6 year old Competition to get off the mark this afternoon and should be backed in the 5:45 from Hamilton at the 2/1 with BetFair.
Regular readers of the column will know we received a strong word for the horse last time out at Yarmouth when really well backed and looked to have the race locked up when cruised up under Silvestre De Sousa only to be beaten in a photo by Sexy Secret. Dr Newland has gone for the blinkers today to help him go through with the job this time and as has only been raised 2lbs for that effort would expect a similar effort and should prove hard to beat once again.
This doesnt look as competitive as the Yarmouth contest, possibly Royal Cosmic being the danger for Richard Fahey but at the current price of 2/1 Competition should be backed and will take the beating.
