Verdict

An interesting looking finale which could be fought out by the pair at the top of the handicap. Garrick represents a trainer with a fine strike-rate at Newcastle (John Gosden), and he is already a winner at this track himself (1m maiden), but the vote goes to the progressive filly LIGHT OF JOY. She's won both of her last two starts, including over C&D, with a 4lb rise in the weights not overly punitive for her latest 1½L success.
  1. Light Of Joy
  2. Garrick
  3. Trading Punches
