Lostintranslation shaped with bags of promise when runner-up on debut over the larger obstacles, so rates the best bet to go one better and land the the Grade 2 Berkshire Novices’ Chase on Friday. King’s Odyssey looks nicely treated on the pick of his form and is our next best punt in the 3m Ladbrokes Handicap Chase. De Name Evades Me, meanwhile, is a promising sort who looks on a handy mark and makes plenty of each-way appeal in the 3m Ladbrokes Handicap Hurdle that brings proceedings to a close on a cracking seven-race card. Find out more about these horses in our in-depth preview with Newbury betting tips for November 30.Lostintransalation the Berkshire Novices’ Chase betLostintranslation shaped with stacks of promise when runner-up on seasonal reappearance, so looks decent value to gain revenge on La Bague Au Roi and go one better to land the spoils in the Grade 2 Berkshire Novices’ Chase over an extended 2m 7f at Newbury on Friday (13:50). This Colin Tizzard trained six-year-old developed into a very smart hurdler last season when winning once and posting some solid efforts in defeat.
They include when finding only the highly-regard and very useful Claimantakinforgan 2 1/4 lengths too good at this venue 12 months ago. Lostintranslation duly showed the benefit of that experience and went one better next time up here when readily landing a 13-runner maiden hurdle by 3 1/2 lengths.
He went on to finish an excellent seventh of 19 to Summerville Boy in the Grade 1 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle over 2m at the Cheltenham Festival where, after being held-up towards the rear, he made good headway four from home to chase the leaders. Lostintranslation then got hampered at a crucial stage at the third last before being outpaced from two out to be beaten 8 1/4 lengths.
The son of Flemensfirth was then stepped up to 2m 4f on the final start of the campaign and ran a belter when a half-a-length second to Black Op in a Grade 1 at Aintree’s Grand National meeting. He again came from off the pace and led when making a mistake at the last, before being headed in the shadows of the post.
Lostintransalation lost nothing in defeat and Tizzard has always maintained that whatever he achieved over hurdles would be a bonus, as he was bred to come into his own as a chaser. There was certainly lots to like about his debut over 2m 6f here three weeks ago when a 1 1/2 lengths second to the aforementioned La Bague Au Roi.
After racing keenly at the head of affairs and jumping well, Lostintransaltion kept on well after being headed between the last two, getting slightly hampered and forced to switch right on the run-in. He shaped as if needing the outing against a rival that has a superb record fresh.
So, with further progress looking assured, Lostintranslastion is taken to come out on top on this occasion – despite the pair meeting on exactly the same terms. Thus he rates our best bet of these Newbury betting tips for November 30 on a competitive seven-race card.King’s Odyssey fancied to reign supremeIn the 2m 3f Ladbrokes Handicap Chase (14:25), Kings Odyssey looks nicely treated on the pick of his form and worth a punt to land an overdue success. The Evan Williams trained nine-year-old has won two of his 12 starts over fences, with the last of those successes coming at Cheltenham back in January 2016 when beating Waldorf Salad by 1 3/4 lengths off a mark of 139.
The son of King’s Theatre has been lightly-raced since, but posted some rock solid efforts in defeat last season in some ultra-competitive affairs. They include when 7 3/4 lengths third of 10 to Guitar Pete in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at Cheltenham almost a year ago off 140.
King’s Odyssey backed that up with a fine third of 14 to Frodon in another Grade 3 handicap at the same venue, before rounding off the campaign with an excellent 6 3/4 lengths third of 22 to The Storyteller in the Grade 3 Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate at the Cheltenham Festival off a rating of 139.
The form of those races read extremely well in the contest of this lower grade class 2 affair, and King’s Odyssey comes into it on the back of a highly promising return to action when a keeping on six-length second of 11 to War Sound at Aintree earlier in the month.
Although raised 2lb for that, King’s Odyssey remains handily weighted off a revised rating of 141, given that he has been placed off 6lb higher in the past. He has also won once and been placed twice in three starts overt the trip, while any further rain that arrives will only help his cause. So, taking everything into account, his claims look obvious in this and King’s Odyssey therefore had to be the next best bet in our Newbury betting tips for November 30.De Name Evades Me looks solid each-way De Name Evades Me is a promising and unexposed sort who looks weighted to run a huge race in the 3m Ladbrokes Handicap Hurdle that brings proceedings to a close (15:35). The six-year-old is an Irish point winner who has improved with every outing in four starts over the obstacles since joining trainer Fergal O’Brien.
Although no match of easy 13-length winner Dinons in a six-runner affair at Cheltenham on seasonal reappearance, the son of Vinnie Roe stuck to the task well against a progressive rival now rated 145. It was an effort full of promise and De Name Evades Me has since shown a good attitude to go one better and open his account under rules at Warwick.
After taking up the running two from home, he responded well for pressure when pressed after the last to beat Captain Cargo by 1 1/2 lengths off an official rating of 125. De Name Evades Me was well on top at the finish and arguably value for more than the winning margin.
He still looks a work in progress and appeals as the type to go on progressing throughout the season. So, given that he now makes his handicap debut off a mark of 125, the assessor may well have underestimated his ability – especially as he is by far the least exposed in the line-up.
It will be disappointing if De Name Evades Me does not make the frame at least off what looks a lenient opening mark. That’s why he features as the each-way punt and completes our Newbury betting tips for November 30 on day one of their Winter Carnival.Your Next Bet
