An eight runner race with only Pharoh Jake having been known to lead before but its not in my top three ratings so doubt it will improve enough to win this even with an uncontested lead. My third top rated Gulland Rock and second top Triple Dream both like to track the leaders but the top rated WHITECREST 12/1 can track the leaders or be held up and come home the stronger at the price it would have to be given as an each way bet and there's nothing in the trainers statistics that puts me off putting it up as a selection but stakes should be kept to a modest amount at most and also keep an eye on the going as it is predicted there may be some heavy showers and if on the soft side all bets are off.
6:15 Newcastle - A class four race with eleven runners, two of the runners Kommander Kirkup and the fifth top rated Makin The Rules could lead but only usually do so when nothing else wants to do the donkey work but there is two more likely front runners in Can You Conga my sixth top rated and Cosmic Chatter the fourth top so it should be a reasonably fast run race.third top is Dark Castle who usually likes to track the leaders, second top Barney McGrew can track the pace or be held up which styles also apply to the top rated DAYLIGHT 20/1 and this one has good statistics from the trainers side of things which points to it running a big race but at the price has to be given as an each way bet but once again keep an eye on the going as there are heavy showers predicted here as well and any softness means all bets are off again.
7:05 Chelmsford - Only six runners and still a hard race to solve completely because mainly due to the newness of this course, there's two known front runners, Speed The Plough who wouldn't be in my top three and BERTIE BLU BOY 3/1 who ran a reasonably fast time at this course and distance but is the only one who has run at the course, using times from Kempton the top rated is FOSSA 5/1, so I'm suggesting backing both to make a profit whichever one wins and at least here it doesn't matter what the weather does.
Whitecrest 12/1 3rd
Daylight 33/1 Unp
Bertie Blu Boy 7/2 1st
