Race 1 – Newcastle Racecourse
PADDY ELVIS wasn’t much of anything in 9th when sent off favourite on debut at Aintree in November. It is too soon to write him off and he looks worth chancing again in a very moderate event. JACK HYDE showed a step in the right direction when 3rd at Lingfield latest. He can bring home some more minor money or even challenge.
Top Tip – PADDY ELVIS (11)
One to consider – JACK HYDE (3)
Race 2 – Newcastle Racecourse
TURNAWAY unlocked the required improvement when upped to 3m at Taunton last month. He opened the account with a nice 2+ in hand and there can be plenty more as his rider’s 3lb claim dampens the 5lb hike. ATOMIC ANGEL is on the radar following a triumphant 14 length success at Catterick on return to hurdles. A 7lb hike is fair and is completely removed by her rider’s 8lb claim.
Top Tip – TURNAWAY (2)
One to consider – ATOMIC ANGEL (11)
Race 3 – Newcastle Racecourse
COLONEL HARRY was a useful sort between the flags in Ireland before crossing the seas to join Jamie Snowden. He won with 7 in hand on 2nd outing over timber and was far from disgraced in 4th at G1 level latest. He should be able to take this one out on pure class alone. DARE TO SHOUT sports a handsome 50,000 price tag and is a winner between the flags. He may be best placed to challenge the selection but might have to settle for some minor money.
Top Tip – COLONEL HARRY (1)
One to consider – DARE TO SHOUT (5)
Race 4 – Newcastle Racecourse
FRENCH PARADOXE was leading on track for a hat trick at Ffos Las latest before falling at the last. He has a 7lb hike to weather but can bounce back immediately here. FORTIFIED BAY is on the radar having won latest at Kelso with a huge 10 in hand. He still has plenty left in him at 11 years old and should enjoy a return to this C&D despite the 8lb rise in the ratings.
Top Tip – FRENCH PARADOXE (4)
One to consider – FORTIFIED BAY (5)
Race 5 – Newcastle Racecourse
PASSING WELL opened the account on first outing for Jamie Snowden in November before being downfield in 4th in a Grade 1 at Newbury on New Year’s Eve. He won’t have to dig deep to get his way at this level despite a penalty for his Uttoxeter success. FAME AND CONCRETE has rattled the crossbar the last twice and can play a similar supporting role for Jonjo O’Neill.
Top Tip – PASSING WELL (1)
One to consider – FAME AND CONCRETE (5)
Race 6 – Newcastle Racecourse
COOLMOYNE was 5 lengths 2nd at Ayr earlier in the month and has had a wind operation since. Another go off the same 87 mark could be enough to get him an open account at this level. CHEMICAL WARFARE was pulled up on chase bow/comeback run over C&D on Boxing Day. He should be better off for the run despite not completing the race. Improvement looks likely and he could find his way into the equation.
Top Tip – COOLMOYNE (3)
One to consider – CHEMICAL WARFARE (9)
Race 7 – Newcastle Racecourse
AUTUMN RETURN returned to winning ways with an impressive 4 length success at Catterick late last month. Another 3lb isn’t going to be too troublesome and she looks set for a compelling double bid. DOLLAR BAE is an obvious danger on hat trick bid. The added 4lb could anchor her based on the neck margin of her latest success but she could dig deep here.
Top Tip – AUTUMN RETURN (3)
One to consider – DOLLAR BAE (2)
