Newbury Adrien Du Pont

Horse racing - Newbury - 01 Dec 13:50

Yanworth and Willoughby Court head the market here and they set a fair standard, however I think Adrien Du Pont has been aimed at this and is good value against that pair at 7/1. He's trained by Paul Nicholls who's won this race twice before, including last season. He's a got a solid 19% strike rate over fences here at Newbury (15 from 80) and jockey Harry Cobden has a 50% strike rate over fences here (2 from 4).

Adrien Du Pont is a French import with plenty of size and scope, he was bred to be a chaser. He's previously being running over hurdles and has put in some good performances, including winning a Grade 1 as a juvenile. He's only really been running over hurdles for the experience though, he was basically being saved for this season.


His first start this season was his first start over fences, he won easily. Yes it was an average race but he did his job nicely and jumped very well. Paul Nicholls said he wasn't anywhere near 100% fit for that having had a wind op in July, there's so much more to come here.

Obviously he needs to find a lot more here but I expect him to do just that. He's got the size & scope to win this and wouldn't be running here if the trainer didn't think he could win anyway. He will improve massively for his debut, both in terms of fitness and the ability to jump a fence. I think he could cause a minor upset here and is good value.
