BARNET FAIR - 7.45 Newcastle

Dandy Nicholls has a fine record in the Betfred Mobile Gosforth Park Cup, with two winners in the last ten renewals, and he has a good chance of making it even better this evening with BARNET FAIR.

The six-year-old has only just joined Nicholls' yard from Lee Carter's and on his last run for his previous handler he ran a blinder to be sixth in the Investec Dash at Epsom on Derby day.

He finished his race well from an unfavourable draw in that race and has been dropped 1lb on the back of it to a mark of 91, which is one he should be competitive from.

He's won off similar ratings (88 and 90) at Ascot in the past and Good to Firm ground is absolutely ideal for him.

That Dash form is probably the best in the line-up and at prices around 7/1 he rates a very fair each-way bet in what is a competitive, but undoubtedly easier, race.
