Verdict

Alan King has saddled only three Flat runners at Newcastle since May 2016, but he has clearly set his sights on this valuable Class 2 stayers handicap and is doubly represented by February's C&D winner Lexington Law and also Cosmeapolitan. The latter named has Jamie Spencer booked to ride and either of this pair could conceivably plunder this devilishly difficult contest. The thriving Island Brave and Amazing Red are closely handicapped on their recent Lingfield clash, and that is symbolic of the race overall. In terms of a selection we'll chance STARGAZER. He caught the eye over 2m here last week behind a rival who goes for the Queens Cup at Musselburgh on Saturday.
  1. Stargazer
  2. Cosmeapolitan
  3. Al Hamdany
