6:15 Newcastle Racing Tips (28th September)

Newcastle racing tips

An apprentice jockeys race, so my stakes are already on the low side of normal, with 11 runners over 5 furlongs but just 2 that are known as front runners or pacesetters and the bottom weight Lady Joanna Vassa is just outside my top 4 so could be the one to catch on this straight course so stall 10 isn't a negative, the 3 year old Cherry Oak and Another Angel are joint 3rd top rated but a few spots behind *BRENDAN 4/1 who recorded its best time when finishing 2nd, so I'm not sure if that time is true as it may have got a good tow into the race, but its time when winning was 13lb’s slower, it is in good form which is always a bonus, my top rated is COMPTON RIVER 8/1 who does seem much better on the all-weather compared to turf and it has run much better than the bare placings look, I will go with backing both selections but maybe favouring my top rated.

Compton River 10/1 4th


There's 14 runners here over 6 furlongs but none of them is known as pacesetting types so I'm a bit stuck as to what will happen, the draw makes none or very little difference to any one of the 14 could change their tactics and try and lead all way here (well someones got to lead but I meant in a fast pace) if it becomes a tactical race I will be even more confused, I've found 4 that could win the race on their best times either from this course and distance or the same trip at Wolverhampton on this Tapeta surface but I wouldn't put any of them up as a proper selection and its maybe best to leave the race alone, I will dutch these 4 runners if the prices permit, Musharrif 4/1, Epeius 14/1, Kommander Kirkup 16/1 and Ninjago 5/1 but maybe leaning very slightly in the favour of the 2 last named horses.
