Newcastle horse racing tips
16.55 – Betway Handicap – 2m
This is an excellent opener and I think BUSY STREET will run a big race. Has has already won twice here this year and was a good third in a higher graded event over C&D 16 days ago. From a 1Ib lower mark, the nine-year-old should go close.
CLOUD THUNDER lost no caste in defeat when second to the 87-rated Dublin Pharaoh back in November here and has a good chance, while GLAN Y GORS is another to consider in this very open-looking contest.
Selections: BUSY STREET, CLOUD THUNDER, GLAN Y GORS
LICIT has been in good form of late and it’s interesting to see her revert back to this sphere following an excellent on hurdle debut back in December. She’s a huge player.
SHIFTING GOLD appeals most of the remainder back the scene of her encouraging fourth when last sighted at this course and shouldn’t be far away.
Selections: LICIT, SHIFTING GOLD
18.00 – Betway Novice Stakes – 6f
DRAGON SYMBOL is likely to start a short-priced favourite but looked an above-average prospect when making a winning debut at Wolverhampton 10 days ago and has been found a fine opportunity to remain unbeaten.
Selections: DRAGON SYMBOL
This looks competitive but a chance is taken on DAZZLING DES who despite running poorly when last seen, is back on a good mark which has saw him hit the frame from slightly higher marks previously.
It’s been a long time since JAMES WATT saw the winner’s enclosure but he’s down to a career-low mark and should be thereabouts now eased in grade.
Selections: DAZZLING DES, JAMES WATT
19.00 – Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Fillies’ Handicap – 1m
ARAFI has made giant strides in handicaps recently and completed the hat-trick at Wolverhampton 26 days ago. She has been hit with a 13Ib rise but might be equal to the task.
ANGEL OF THE GLEN has made a fine start to her career, winning of her three outings last year and she should give the favourite most to think about this evening.
Selections: ARAFI, ANGEL OF THE GLEN
19.30 – Bombardier Handicap (Div 1) – 1m
Heather Main has a good strike-rate at this venue and her runner, POLAR CLOUD, is worth a second look on return to action here under Hollie Doyle. He could go well at a big price.
BROCTUNE RED has an excellent record at this venue and has won the last two times over C&D. He represents a stable going well at present and should make a bold from a career-high mark in the finale.
Selections: POLAR CLOUD, BROCTUNE RED
