Ladbrokes Novices Steeplechase Tips

Early declarations are in and only 7 are entered, this could easyly be less by raceday on Friday, looking at the stats it will probably pay to stick with the first 3 in the betting FIDDLERONTHEROOF, CARIBEAN BOY and KALOOKI as they all fit the profile.

Keith' tip on raceday

CARIBEAN BOY 13:50 Newbury 5/2 – Just 3 runners and it is hard to discount any of them but ready preference is for CARIBEAN BOY who wasn't stopping when winning well on heavy going when last seen in February and should be even better on this good ground. 

How did we do?

CARIBEAN BOY won by 4 lengths after a pretty good round of jumping, after drifting in the betting to 100/30 he went of as the ousider of 3.

Keith will email out his final selection for this race to his VIP members on the morning of the race.
