Duel between Mark Johnston’s filly and Almoreb is the biggest attraction on Tuesday’s Newbury card
Only one of the seven races on a relatively low-key card at Newbury this afternoon has attracted a double-figure field, and that is the opening maiden in which five of the 11 runners are priced at 33-1 or bigger. All five of the meeting’s handicaps have something to recommend them, however, and the one-mile event at 3.25 makes particular appeal as it may well boil down to an effective match between two horses at around 2-1.
Rebel Assault and Almoreb are the two runners in question, and while it seems odd on the face of it that neither has managed to register a win this season in a combined total of 12 starts, both have been running consistently well at this level or higher.
