Newbury Tip: Orvar

Form isn't so bad that he should be the outsider of 8. Not well drawn last time and has winning form, collateral and literal with these rivals.

The 3.35 Newbury is a good quality sprint but i’m surprised at the spread in prices because most of these have intertwined all-weather form. According to the betting Orvar is the rank outsider but this is a horse who won two starts back, beating the solid yardstick that is Atletico, with Tomily back in third.

Off level weights he wasn’t able to make an impression in a Listed contest at Lingfield but the 5-year-old was widest drawn and only beaten 2.5 lengths. He’s not been with Paul Midgley long and his new trainer has a done well with similair sprint types in the past. Off joint bottom-weight he is better than his odds suggest.
