49-8OR: 83D
5/2

Beaten narrowly (½L) by Airton over C&D on Northumberland Plate Day in July, and produced a broadly similar showing when fourth from a 3lb higher mark next time. Clearly well suited by 1m4f on Tapeta, but becoming high in the weights.

In and out performer, but fully capable over this trip as he showed when springing a 40/1 surprise at Hamilton in early July. Also a C&D winner in 2016 from a 5lb lower mark, but worries remain about his lack of more recent form.

5/1

Twice a winner on Polytrack, with his strongest showing coming at Kempton in September 2016 (1m3f). Has fallen back in the weights since that success and his recent efforts haven't suggested he's primed too strike, but well worth a go on Tapeta.

66/1

A three time turf winner last season (all over 1m4f), ending the year with a mark of 87. However, not in the same form since his return to action in July, and wears cheek-pieces for the first time on AW debut.

49-5OR: 80CD
7/2

Unexposed in handicaps (just one start to date), and dropped back into a maiden when a decisive 2¾L C&D winner in October 2016. Absent since, and has left the care of Marco Botti (for 115,000 gns), and very interesting to see how he fares.

99-4OR: 79D
28/1

A seven time career winner, but very lightly raced on synthetics, and it's difficult to anticipate much improvement at the age of nine. Dropping in the weights, but never really competitive in the 1m4f Hambleton Cup at Thirsk earlier this month.

79-3OR: 78D
50/1

A multiple winner on the AW for various trainers, and seems particularly endeared to the Fibresand at Southwell. This trainer can often improve newcomers, but this gelding has back-tracked slightly since a promising start at Doncaster in early July.

Had done all of his winning over 1m2f until seeing off Pastoral Music by 1½L over 1m3½f at Bath in late August (good to firm). Raised 3lb, and makes just a second career AW start for a trainer who is a newcomer to Newcastle.

39-3OR: 85
12/1

Has faced some difficult assignments, but it's been all downhill since winning over 7f at Doncaster in May. Stamina a major concern on his first try at this trip (seldom raced beyond 1m in a 15 race career).

13/2

His sole career success came in a maiden here in March (1m2f) when beating subsequent dual scorer Wefait. Furthermore, his June effort here (1m2f) when fourth to Therthaar reads well enough, and he's probably on a fair mark, but trip isn't ideal.

68-10OR: 71CD
20/1

A two time winner here in 2017 (both times over 1m2f), and he made light of those thinking that the handicapper had his measure when fending off Sikander by ½L in late July. Not so sharp latterly, but has past form over this trip.

11/1

Picked up for 28,000 gns in July after winning over this trip at Newbury for Ed Walker. His new trainer hasn't quite got to grips with him just yet, but with previous winning AW form (Polytrack), he could improve back on synthetics.

Betting

Forecast

Cape Peninsular (5/2), Rasmee (7/2), Banish (5/1), Lopes Dancer (13/2), King's Coinage (11/1), Aardwolf (12/1), Monsieur Glory (16/1), Archipeligo (20/1), Chancery (28/1), Be Perfect (33/1), Luv U Whatever (50/1), Icefall (66/1)

Verdict

Roger Charlton rarely sends any runners to Newcastle (1 from 2 in the past five years), so it is potentially interesting that RASMEE becomes his first representative on Tapeta at Gosforth Park. That said; the four-year-old who is unexposed in handicaps was one of the more interesting runners in any case on the strength of his decisive C&D maiden success for previous trainer Marco Botti in October 2016. Newmarket trainer Tom Clover also saddles his first ever Newcastle AW runner with Monsieur Glory, and this improving four time winner looks the chief threat having been given a relatively fair looking 3lb rise for his latest victory at Bath.
