Racing Guide: A familiar name at Newbury this afternoon

Sprinter Sacre's full brother, Flinteur Sacre, makes his debut at Newbury this afternoon.
Sprinter Sacre's full brother, Flinteur Sacre, makes his debut at Newbury this afternoon.

Today's pointers come from Newbury, Wolverhampton and Punchestown...

1. Cargo has fine claims  

Three from four since joining Nicky Henderson, Precious Cargo looks to make it two from two over fences as he lines up in the 13.45 Newbury races. Testing ground should hold no fears for a horse who won on going termed as 'heavy' four days before Christmas at Haydock Park. Nico de Boinville rides as the duo aim to defy top weight in this novices' limited handicap chase, just 24 hours after the top jock scored on both of his mounts for Henderson at a windswept and rainy Doncaster.

2. Boy, he could be good 

The 13.55 Wolverhampton is the choice of trainer Marco Botti as he plots a course to engineering the rise of up and coming youngster Batchelor Boy. By Footstepsinthesand, this three-year-old colt has shown handy form on all three career starts to date, and now begins life in handicaps off a rating of 75. His latest appearance was a novice victory achieved over today's course and distance, a display which saw him dominate from the front. It'll be intriguing to see if similar tactics are employed again. 

3. King's runner can defy his name 

First time sheepskin cheekpieces are applied to former course winner Notachance in the 15.25 Newbury. Alan King's six-year-old gelding has already bagged a victory over fences when scoring at Exeter in November, and was a solid fifth at this track last time out. King's string are going okay given he sent out a big winner on the all-weather at Wolverhampton on Monday night in the shape of Rainbow Dreamer. 

4. Queally has a fine chance in the bumper

Sent off an even money favourite when disappointing in third at Limerick at Christmas time, in-form Declan Queally sends the mare Dreamingandhoping back into battle in the 15.40 Punchestown, looking to atone for that festive flop in this interesting mares' bumper. Wearing a first time hood, she is armed with more experience than the majority of her rivals. 

5. Your name sounds familiar...

Last but not least, keep an eye on the closing bumper on the card at Newbury this afternoon (16:00), in which a well-related five-year-old makes his eagerly awaited debut. The horse in question is the Nicky Henderson-trained Flinteur Sacre, who is a full brother to the legendary dual Champion Chase winner, Sprinter Sacre. The vibes in the market are, as you'd perhaps expect, strong this morning, and it's worth noting that Sprinter Sacre won both of his starts in bumpers.
