6:15 Newcastle Racing Tips (28th February)

Horse Racing Tips
An eight runner race which I can split into two halves, one half I would look to lay and I'm not sure I can narrow it down to less than 3 of them and i may go with dutching, Nautical Haven 5/2, who looks the most likely pace setter from stall 3 and could at least try to pinch the race from the front but this is its debut on this surface so not completely sure it will like it, Upavon 4/1 is joint top rated and looks to be coming into form, Jacobs Pillow 14/1 is capable of recording a fast time but usually in a lower class race but never say never, I will most likely go with Upavon as my main bet and then smaller bets on the other two to make a profit whichever one wins.

Newcastle Abandoned due to snow
Again 8 runners and I cant narrow it down to less than 3 again but there's not a natural front runner in the race which doesn't help with analysing the race but maybe on this straight course Gloriux could set the tempo but doubt it can win the race, Tommy G 11/4 and Johnny Cavagin 12/1 both of whom look as though a longer trip would suit and may not have the race run to suit them if Gloriux sets a slower early pace but I couldn't completely rule them out but the one I will go with WINDFORPOWER 15/2 as my main bet and the other 2 as cover bets to show a profit whichever one does the business.
One extra runner this time and only 2 that are known to lead, Roy's Dream who doesn't seem to like this surface as much as the others so maybe the front running role will be taken up by NOVABRIDGE 7/1 who is one of my top rated and along with SEE VERMONT 10/1 will be my 2 selections in this race and this one could get a good tow into the race being housed between the 2 horses that usually like to lead.
