There are possible hidden dangers all over this race so stakes will have to be kept on the small side, there's 5 of the 14 runners that are known as front running types so it could be run fast for the class of race which im quite pleased about, Sandras Secret comes out 3rd top on my figures but mainly because theres a very limited amount of data for me to work with but this one is a possible front runner along with Bertie Blu Boy, Noble Storm who im not keen on then the other 2 are Bondi beach Boy and Astrophysics who could improve if getting the right opportunities but I will as always stick with the proven, Ziggy Lee has been progressing on turf after being off racing for quite some time and has been showing steady improvement and I make this probably the biggest danger. Crosse Fire is 2nd top but doesn't really seem as happy on this surface as it does on slower ones but that just shows how little information I am working with but my top rated is RICH AGAIN 12/1 a horse I know is still capable of winning in this class of race and its a hold up type who at this distance needs a fast early pace so that the pace setters are tiring as this one's stamina comes into play and with 5 possible pace setters this race could suit the selection and the booking of the jockey Jim Crowley to ride for the 1st time for this stable points even further to connections expecting a big run from the horse in this race and at the price it can be backed each way.
Rich Again 12/1 1st + 17/2 winner+12/1 2nd=£106.50 f/c
8:50 Newcastle -
This 2nd division of this sprint is even worse than the 1st division with only 3 this time that are known to lead, 5 that could be hidden dangers, the topweight Gwendolyn is my joint 3rd top rated using Wolverhampton times, which has the same surface, and this 3 year old could still be capable of improving but its quite a few spots behind the top rated, Oriental Relation is 2nd best and 1 of the possible pace setters which would make it dangerous if it gets its own way in front but I doubt Baileys Mirage and Jack Luey will let it have its own way which leaves me with the top rated ELUSIVITY 10/1 who usually likes to race prominently but this one actually looks better over a longer trip or a different surface but then theres FIRST BOMBARDMENT 12/1 who did a fast time at this course and distance when just beaten into 2nd place behind Futoon, with conflicting ratings from the 2 courses with this surface I will go with backing both of them each way at the odds to hopefully find the winner but once again with so many unknowns with a limited amount of data to analyse stakes will be kept low.
First Bombardment 12/1 4th
Elusivity 10/1 Unp
