5:15 Newcastle Racing Tips (1st March)

Newcastle Racecourse
Class 4 race but certainly not the best for the class, I've only noticed there's not much noted early pace in the race so that always makes it harder to analyse, I've marked 3 down as possible lays and 4 I think could or might win this race, Dynamo Walt 4th best, Royal Brave 3rd best using times from last year but both have done reasonable times this year so should be fit enough to run to form, ROSINA 6/1 is my 2nd best but only 2lb below top spot but the trainer has a dire 1-32 record at this course which puts me off a bit but I'm also put off a bit with my top rated RICH AGAIN 14/1 who has a good trainer stats but the jockey is 0-7, i will go with backing them both hoping they can defy those negative stats but my stakes will be kept on the low side.
This race is a poor poor race, I've got negatives against 8 of the runners, only 4 with recorded times and 2 of those were back in 2016 so i guess New Rich and Divine Call could have a chance of making the frame if coming back to their best, Fantasy Justifier is 2nd best and that's on a time recorded this year but its a low speed figure and it does become short on stamina if there's a fast early pace which leaves me with FAIRWAY TO HEAVEN 15/2 who recorded a time last year that would have it winning this race quite easily but at this level the horses are not very consistent with their form so my stake wont be at full tilt.
