Alan Thomson’s Racing Tips: Kalashnikov has Newbury prize in his sights


KALASHNIKOV (3.35) appears primed for a huge run in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury.

Amy Murphy has an exciting novice on her hands, with his only defeat coming in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown on very deep ground.

Kalashnikov reportedly lost a shoe in the mud and the five-year-old will be better served by this less testing ground. He had earlier mopped up two novice hurdles in most impressive fashion.

Gary Moore has scooped this big pot three times and Knocknanuss has a live chance of making it four on the back of an impressive Boxing Day triumph at Fontwell. Those two progressive youngsters will do for me at each-way prices (most firms offering five places).

BREWIN’UPASTORM (4.45) should give his backers a good run for their money in what is probably the hottest bumper of the season so far.

Olly Murphy’s son of Milan powered home from a decent yardstick at Hereford and Richard Johnson gets the leg up.

RAVENHOE (8.45) can win the nightcap at Wolverhampton, a track Mark Johnston’s gelding runs well.

Rookie rider Oliver Stammers has struck up a good relationship with Ravenhoe and they made virtually all the running over tonight’s trip of 1m 1f to beat Top Offer last month.

Ravenhoe was turned out five days later over a furlong shorter and his apprentice jockey could never get him into a prominent position following a tardy start. He ran on strongly in the straight to chase home heavily-backed American Patrol, with Critical Thinking right behind in third. This extra furlong suits.

        Superb Alan with Kalashnikov.

        Think we’ve seen the gold cup and champion chase winners today .
        Native river has had fewer races this year and will be a lot fresher this year at Cheltenham.
        Altior has beat min before at Cheltenham and on today’s pipe opener will do so again.
        10-11 and 7-1 a nice pre festival double
