Forecast

Eternally Yours (5/4), Rubytwo (9/2), Shine Baby Shine (9/2), Rivabodiva (10/1), Dark Sunset (10/1), Beyondtemptation (12/1), Ebony Rose (20/1)

Verdict
2017 winner Beyondtemptation is better known as a Hexham specialist, but interestingly this grand mare seeks a return to form having won on each of her last three starts at Gosforth Park. Ebony Rose is somewhat of an unknown commodity following more than a year off the track but she was progressive when last in competitive action and her locally-based trainer is no stranger to Newcastle winners. However, the most alluring option is ETERNALLY YOURS. She is lightly-raced over hurdles but also firmly on the upgrade, so can make light of a 6lb rise in the weights for a promising handicap debut second at Ayr.
  1. Eternally Yours
  2. Ebony Rose
  3. Shine Baby Shine
