Forecast

Fintry Flyer (9/4), Windforpower (4/1), Novabridge (9/2), Fuel Injection (8/1), Spirit Of Zebedee (8/1), Santafiora (10/1), Little Nosegay (12/1), Monsieur Mel (20/1), Tihana (25/1), Reflation (25/1), Griffin Street (33/1)

Verdict
As is so often the case at Newcastle, a 5f sprint to conclude the action, with predictably a number of course regulars in the line up. Fintry Flyer is less exposed than the majority after just eight previous appearances, with her trainer Jim Goldie in fine form at Newcastle in 2018. She has form tied up with the other fancied runners; the triple C&D scorer Novabridge, and the most likeable ever late on the scene WINDFORPOWER. Whilst the selection sits high enough in the handicap, he's always massively feared at this track, and was in fine form during March 2017, including when beaten a neck by Sea Of Green (off this mark) in this corresponding race.
  1. Windforpower
  2. Fuel Injection
  3. Fintry Flyer
