Verdict

Those who forecast the slow demise of the Northumberland Plate are increasingly silent with the 2018 renewal potentially the strongest for many years. The Cesarewitch winner Withhold is evidently a Group horse in the making and is fancied to confirm that form with Lagostovegas despite the Mullins-trained raider being race-fit from her Ascot Stakes success. However, Godolphin have firmly set this race in their sights over the past couple of years, with 2017 runner-up NATURAL SCENERY seeking to enhance her already fine Newcastle record. While she rates as the selection, a couple of lively outsiders worthy of each-way respect include Sir Chauvelin and Top Tug.
  1. Natural Scenery
  2. Withhold
  3. Top Tug
