Forecast

Bingo D'Olivate (5/4), Lastin' Memories (7/2), Copt Hill (9/2), Green Zone (11/1), Felix Mendelssohn (14/1), Lady Samback (22/1), Fiosrach (25/1), Hellavashock (28/1), Cyrano Star (33/1), Leonasisland (40/1), Anguino (50/1), Solway Lark (50/1)

Verdict
A bitterly disappointing opener for a Grade 1 jumps track on the Saturday immediately prior to Christmas. Copt Hill bounced back to form when taking a similar low-grade contest here last week, with Lastin' Memories breaking the maiden tag at the same Newcastle fixture but over a longer trip (2m4f). However, the much preferred option is the once mildly useful BINGO D'OLIVATE. He showed immediate improvement when scoring on his first start for James Ewart at Ayr (9/4f) and won't be at all inconvenienced by further rain.
