Quite a nice race for a class 6 affair but there is 2 or 3 possible hidden dangers which always tempers confidence, there's 3 that have been known there'sd but none of them in my top 4 ratings, Dreams Of Glory is 4th top rated on a 2015 time but only had 1 run on this course and distance since so not sure what it can do, Temple Road is 3rd top and Long Awaited 2nd top both can be held up or track the leaders which is the same style as my top rated which is NOBLE ASSET 5/1 at a quick glance its form doesnt look too good but it was 4th the time before last and only beaten one and a half lengths in a fast time, last time out the early pace wasnt fast enough and it couldnt challenge as the front runners still had something left in their legs to repel the late challengers but im hoping this race will be run fast enough for the leaders to be tiring and the selection can stay on the stronger at the finish.

This doesnt look the strongest of races and consistency isnt in any of their profiles then add on the fact theres no known natural front running type in the race which probably wont help those who are held up to challenge when the leaders tire, Tasaaboq is my 3rd top rated and seems to like to track the leaders but it might need further to show its best so could stay on to make the frame, my 2nd top rated is Krazy Paving but im not sure this surface brings out the best in the horse but could make the frame if running to its best, top of my list is KAABER 10/1 who won the time before last when racing prominently all the way before staying on strongly to win, last time out I was disappointed as it was held up by the apprentice jockey and never got into the race so im hoping with Tom eaves riding this time they go back to racing nearer the front here and then stay on the stronger at the finish and get back to winning ways or at least at the price do enough to stay in the frame.

This division sure isnt much better but at least there is a possible pace setter in Swendab but this one is only 6th top on my figures but stall 9 isnt ideal even so it could do a bit better if given an easy lead, Secret Millionaire is joint 2nd top rated but only 1lb from the top spot from a time recorded in 2015 but hasnt been in the best of form but did finish 3rd last time out but that was over a shorter trip but on this surface at Newcastle and I do think this distance pushes its stamina if run at anything like a fast early pace, the other joint 2nd top is FOSSA 22/1 but this one is being ridden by a 5lb claiming apprentice who does well for this stable and moves to top spot it can be held up or track the pace, stall 10 doesnt look ideal but if Swendab from stall 9 goes for the rail this one could follow it across to the rails and get a good early position and the price permits me to go with an each way wager, the original top rated is Dream Ally and this one has been running fairly consistantly but mainly only making the frame and ought to run a good race here again and has at least a place claim.
