Couple of promising efforts over 7f and 1m on the AW at Newcastle in late 2018. Disappointed in two starts at the same venue earlier this year however and others make more appeal on return from a break.

Betting

Forecast

Beverley Bullet (7/2), Make Me (9/2), Redarna (6/1), Ishebayorgrey (8/1), Edgar Allan Poe (9/1), Chinese Spirit (12/1), Im Dapper Too (12/1), Fingal's Cave (12/1), Fake News (14/1), Showboating (16/1), Strong Steps (25/1), Royal Shaheen (33/1), Gun Case (66/1), Irish Minister (80/1)

Verdict

EDGAR ALLAN POE was a winner last week and he is taken to defy a penalty for that victory to take this competitive handicap. The selection has the trip and ground to suit and he can get the better of fellow last time out winner Redarna who can finish runner-up ahead of Beverley Bullet who is dropping in trip.
  1. Edgar Allan Poe
