It's not a great race and my stakes will be kept low, Newstead Abbey recorded a decent figure on this surface at Newcastle so could make the frame, INDIAN AFFAIR 5/1 looks the most likely leader and being 2nd top rated could be hard to catch especially with an easy lead but I have got GOLD CLUB 11/4 as my top rated and being drawn in stall 1 it ought to be able to stay on the rails just behind the leader ready to stay on strongly at the finish and I will go with backing them both to cover both angles.

Gold Club3/1 3rd
This 2nd division of the race is a little better, TRIPLE DREAM 50/1, the most likely pace setter, is my 3rd top rated but its 7lb apprentices claim moves it 1lb clear at the top so could try to lead all the way here, Compton Prince was in 2nd spot and comes from the same stable and could also make the frame, the topweight FLECKERL 10/1 was my original top rated but moves down to 2nd spot if the apprentice is worth her 7lb claim, I'm not sure how effective the apprentice is going to be because it's her first ride for the stable so I'm going with backing them both each way to show a profit whichever one does the business.
