20:30 Newcastle Mon 7 October 2019
Experienced gelding who was successful twice on the AW at Lingfield back in January but has not won since. His form has been poor recently, including when he was ninth of 13 last time at Redcar (6f). Others are preferred.
A three-time winner in France but has yet to score in the UK. Was fancied to go well last time at Catterick (7f) when he went off as the 4/1 favourite but he had to settle for fifth of 13. Down in trip. Worth considering.
His sole success came over 5f at Musselburgh in September 2018. Went close to his second win at that same C&D last time as he was second of 14 after going off as the 9/4 favourite. Needs to improve on this surface.
Is still a maiden after 12 appearances but he has hit the frame on three occasions. Came home last of 16 runner on his latest start at Ayr (6f). Has had a wind-op since and has a tongue-tie on for the first time here. One to watch for now.
A C&D winner here back in February. Has not been able to follow that up since though. He was ninth of 20 in a handicap at Redcar (6f) last time out. Has to be respected on his return to this C&D.
Has shown signs recently that his first win is not far away. Changed yards last month and since then he has finished fourth of 10 at Wolverhampton (5f) and third of 13 at Southwell (5f) respectively. One for the shortlist here.
0-12 so far on the track. Her performances have improved recently. She was fourth of 13 on her latest attempt in a handicap at Redcar (6f). Set for her first outing on the AW here. Can't be discounted.
A C&D winner back in February, scoring by a neck after going off at 12/1. Has yet to add to his tally since then in what has been a busy campaign. He was third of 14 last time here over 5f. Is back up in trip. Leading contender.
Has scored twice this year, with both of her wins coming at Catterick over 6f. She wasn't too far away when she finished fifth of 13 here over 5f two starts back. Does need to bounce back from her latest outing at Redcar (6f).
Has struggled in her three appearances so far where she has only beaten a rival once and that was when she was sixth of seven last time over this C&D when going off at 200/1. Very difficult to make a case for.
Remains a maiden after 13 starts, however, she has put in some encouraging performances over this distance, one of which was at the track back in May. She was sixth of 10 last time at Hamilton (6f). One to consider on return to the AW.
Went close to her maiden success on the AW at Southwell (5f) two runs ago when she was second of six. Could only finish seventh of 13 over that same C&D last time when going off as the 5/2 favourite. Each-way claims here.
Has shown little encouragement in her four racecourse appearances to date. She was eighth of 12 on her latest attempt here over 5f when going off at 100/1. Others make much more of an appeal.
Is still looking for his first win after 18 starts. Was sixth of 13 at this track over 7f last time out. Down in trip but has struggled at this distance before. Needs to improve on what he has shown so far.
