5:45 Newcastle Racing Tips (5th February)

Newcastle racecourse
NEWCASTLE 5.45

I'm not completely sure what to make of this dash over the straight 5 furlongs at Newcastle, Another Angel is one of only two known front-runners in the field and it's my 4th top rated so could do enough to make the frame, Orient Class comes out 3rd best so should be staying on at the finish, its very close at the top of my figures between Katheefa who looks as though a longer trip would suit it better and its on a 17 times losing run since its last win , it hinted at a return to form when 3rd last time out but its done the same 3 or 4 times in its losing run, I think the trainer of ARCHIMEDES 4/1 has found an ideal opportunity for it here and the horse has been in decent form recently and only beaten in a photo last time out in at this class of race but because of the jockeys 1-31 record for this stable my stakes will be kept on the low side. 

NEWCASTLE 7.15 

This is a dire stakes race and none of the runners has done a time fast enough to register on my figures during the whole of last year and so far this year so my stakes will be kept very low and I would need to find some value in the price of STAR CRACKER 3/1, it can find this distance a bit too far at times but there's no out and out speed merchants in this race so it might be able to coast a little earlier in the race and save something for the finish and the booked jockey does have a 15% win ratio for this stable so I hope that's a good omen, it looks as though I'm not the only one to think it has a good chance here and there's not much meat on the bone at the price on offer so I can only hope it drifts in price.
