VBET’s red-hot trading team bagged an 8/1 winner at Haydock last weekend and once again look for free-to-air value horse racing tips from Newbury today:

2.25 Newbury – CEPAGE

Odds: 7/1

Rather more of a Cheltenham specialist, but he’s won here before in similar conditions. The handicapper refuses to give him an inch, yet he’s still a player on his best form and often goes well fresh.

3.00 Newbury – THYME HILL

Odds: 9/2

Looks one of the races of the season so far, but he’s a great price to enhance an already blossoming reputation. Seriously caught the eye with a staying-on fourth in the Albert Bartlett and has winning form at the track. He’s an outstanding prospect within the staying division.

3.35 Newbury – COEUR DE LION

Odds: 10/1

Hill Sixteen looks a worthy nemesis, but the selection will be plenty fit enough from his Royal Ascot-winning exploits on the Flat. Probably needs a career-best over timber, but this is an intriguing step up in trip and he’s pretty well weighted.
