Bayard - Newbury 1.05 3 Knockgraffon - each way 8/1

KNOCKGRAFFON is a sporting punt to take on likely hot favourite Sirabad. It can be folly
to take on PFNicholls but have a small win saver on his if you want. Sirabad was impressive
last time out but was entitled to be in beating a field of horses rated on a plateau of 120.
This field has several, including the selection rated in low 130's and a recent run at Carlisle;
should have the selection "spot on" fitness wise. They went all the way up there to run
over 20 furlongs, back to 16 furlongs today, the horse understandably tired up the
hill at Carlisle but that may be seen to be an ideal "pipe opener" for today at nice odds.
