Obeaux to strike a chord?

Sky Bet's Kyle Brady brings us the firm's latest Newbury gambles.

Venetia Williams saddles Houblon Des Obeaux

Milarrow 4/1 from 11/2 - 12.55 Newbury

Colin Tizzard's charge came from well off the pace on his chasing debut, when scoring at Exeter earlier this month. The five-year-old may appreciate stiffer tests of stamina in time, but the long straight of Newbury will suit the bottom weight.

Faultless Feelings 8/1 from 16/1 - 13.30 Newbury

Still relatively unexposed at this trip, and this will be the geldings second run in a handicap. Has to overcome a long lay off here, but maybe able to do just that if Martin Keighley has got him spot on.

Houblon Des Obeaux 6/4 from 7/4 - 14.05 Newbury

A decent renewal of this Grade Two event, and it's possible to make a case for all six runners. The likely jolly has been the one for money though, and he looked more than useful in this grade last time out.

Be Marvellous 10/1 from 14/1 - 15.45 Newbury

Money in the bumper is for well-related Be Marvellous, who is the mount of Joe Tizzard. The yard do well with these types and usually save their better ones for the Berkshire track.
