Onefitzall at Newbury is The Messenger Thursday Bet

The Messenger has one bet on Thursday and it is Onefitzall at Newbury.

Newbury 1.10: Onefitzall

A horse with an excellent record fresh, Onefitzall makes plenty of appeal on his first start of the season – and first try at 3m.

His first time out record to date reads 112 – winning a Uttoxeter bumper by 15, a novice hurdle at the same track by 4l and he was then a highly creditable second on his return last term over 2m4f at Carlisle. He only found the classy Definitly Red too good that day and was struggling from some way out until rallying strongly in the closing stages.

That suggests he is well worth a go at this 3m distance and he did actually build on that Carlisle run by winning an excellent handicap at this track at the Hennessy meeting. He did disappoint on his last start at Wincanton over Christmas, but the fact we have not seen him since suggested there was an injury issue. Given his high level of form already 137 might under-estimate his true ability.

Advised bet:

1pt win – Onefitzall – 1.10 Newbury at 5/1 with Ladbrokes
