THE racing world is gearing up for Cheltenham, and as a consequence we are entering into a pretty quiet period.
But there is some decent action at Newbury over the next couple of days to keep us punters ticking over.

I like the chances of LEX TALIONIS (4.30 Newbury) for trainer Charlie Mann.
The six-year-old has been a steady improver over fences and he’s performed with plenty of credit the last twice.
He was a good second (ahead of the reopposing Smuggler’s Cross) at Ludlow two starts ago and bumped into an impressive winner on ground quicker than ideal at Leicester latest.
He runs off the same mark here, underfoot conditions are more suitable and this galloping track will play to his strengths.
