11/10

45,000gns yearling; drops back in trip (first run over 6f) after folding tamely over 1m at Haydock last month; sets the form standard based on his decisive 7f Haydock win; unproven on AW with front-running tactics difficult to adopt at Newcastle.

Just held when a neck runner up to Fognini in a 6f Redcar novice in August, but not quite as strong in two races since; further improvement needed in order to score on AW debut.

£30,000 yearling; half-brother to the AW scorer Mulligatawny; showed little promise in a couple of starts on turf (6f-7f+) last month, and switches to the AW needing a substantial upturn in fortunes.

50,000gns yearling; closely-related to the 6f-1m winner Dark Emerald; achieved little of note in two starts so far (7f turf); no surprise to see him dropped in trip for this AW switch.

Betting

Forecast

Drogon (11/10), Liquid Lunch (4/1), Scottish Blade (4/1), High Contrast (8/1), Spokesman (12/1), Tuscarora Deep (25/1), Jean Merci (28/1), Zalmi Angel (50/1), Jack Berry House (80/1), Slaithwaite (100/1), See My Baby Jive (100/1), Andies Armies (250/1)

Verdict

The standout horse on both form and ratings is Drogon, but he does come with a few risks attached, folding tamely over 1m at Haydock latest and with effectiveness to prove over 6f on Tapeta (first attempt at either). Furthermore, his trainer Tom Dascombe has a modest 16% strike-rate (4-25) at this track, and front-running tactics are never the easiest to adopt at Newcastle, so jockey Richard Kingscote will need to be firmly on his mettle. Therefore, for small stakes we'll look elsewhere and take a chance on the John Dance-owned newcomer HIGH CONTRAST. He is a half-brother to a couple of 1m AW winners and cost 60,000gns as a foal.
