What a lovely looking class 3 sprint with 20 runners, something more to savour than too heavily involved in betting wise. I've found 7 that have been known to set the pace, I'm going to concentrate on my top 6, in 6th spot is Singeur, Bashiba is being ridden by a 7lb claiming apprentice which moves it into 5th spot, I've got 3 co-2nd top rated horses with Robot Boy, Desert Law and Majestic Hero who is 1 of the probable pace setters and if getting to the front could prove to be hard to catch but top of my pile is the 3year old EAST STREET REVUE 6/1 who ran well when just beaten in a photo at Haydock where it stayed on strongly at the finish but not quite strongly enough to catch Harry Hurricane is a class 2 affair so this drop into class 3 should put it in with every chance and its draw in stall 10 means it can go to wherever looks the best on the day.
East Street Revue 8/1 8th
9:10 Newcastle -
I'm still trying to get an angle on this relatively new all-weather track and also being a straight course its also hard to say if there's any bias in the draw, so I'm working with either the very small sample from this course and Wolverhampton which is the only other course to have the same surface material, “Tapeta”. Of the 14 runners there's only 3 that are known to set the pace and 2 of them, Personal Touch and New Road Side I've got marked down as potential hidden dangers and if either gets an uncontested lead they could be very dangerous, using Wolverhampton times its very close between STOCKING 14/1 and Something Lucky, the former is the top rated using a 2015 time but if using this years time it comes out exactly level with the latter but the latter is the 3rd possible front runner but this one is quite versatile with its running style, there's only 3 with times from here, Desert Ace is 3rd best, Rich Again is 2nd best and top is FIRST BOMBARDMENT 10/1 who does usually like to race prominently.
WINNER!!!!!!!!!!! FIRST BOMBARDMENT 10/1 1ST
SUMMARY: I can't split one set of times compared to the others so I will go with backing the fastest from either speed figure line to hopefully capture the winner and at the odds available it has to be 2 each way wagers.
