Newsboy fancies his nap, Gwash, to win at Fontwell and also hopes Aiming High can score at Lingfield and complete his Daily Double

FERGAL O’BRIEN’S Gwash can gain compensation for her final-fence blunder last time by taking the opener at Fontwell on Wednesday.

The former Point winner and bumper runner-up had progressed from his hurdling debut at Huntingdon in early April when going up in trip to land a 2m3f maiden at Warwick later that month, beating Night Stalker by two and three-quarter lengths.

And the five-year-old son of Ol’ Man River would have defied a penalty at Uttoxeter over 2m4f last month but for his late error when three lengths clear.

The gelding is expected to relish going up in distance again to just over 2m5f in the Download The Yeeehaaa.Bet App Novices’ Hurdle.

At Kempton, AIMING HIGH is fancied to live up to her name in the Try Unibet’s Improved Bet Builder Fillies’ Handicap.

The David Simcock-trained five-year-old was a decent second at Lingfield last time out over today’s distance of a mile and half.

Under today’s jockey, Hayley Turner, the daughter of Lope De Vega was going easily and making headway 2f out before being cramped for room and having to switch left.

My selection stayed on well but could not quite reel in the winner Lunar Shadow, who prevailed by half a length.
