2.35pm Newbury Tips & Betting Preview 18/05/2018

Ultimate Avenue is returning from a 224-day break today having had a wind operation and a gelding operation over the winter. He is tried in a first-time hood but looks far too risky a betting proposition at present and ICE AGE is supported to return to winning ways this afternoon. Eve Johnson Houghton’s charge racked up a hat-trick of wins last season and is now just three pounds above his last winning handicap mark. Plenty arrive here looking exposed, so Poet’s Vanity looks most likely to chase the selection home off what looks a fair mark for her handicap debut.
