Forecast

Caesar's Comet (7/4), Suwaan (9/2), Windforpower (7/1), Spirit Of Wedza (15/2), Star Cracker (9/1), Gloriux (11/1), Presidential (14/1), Pea Shooter (20/1), Monte Cinq (20/1), Fly True (66/1)

Verdict
A low grade 5f Newcastle sprint handicap, so it must be the ever-reliable WINDFORPOWER who thrusts himself firmly to the fore. Spirit Of Wedza set the race up for him perfectly here on his most recent start (forced a strong early pace), and the selection was comfortably on top of both that rival and Star Cracker in running out a taking 1L scorer. He's upped in grade tonight (Class 5), but a 4lb rise won't stop him from confirming those placings and with the recently wind operated upon Suwaan also a likely pace angle, he'll have everything that he could possibly desire in order to record a sixth C&D success.
  1. Windforpower
  2. Suwaan
  3. Caesar's Comet
