Forecast

Portledge (3/1), Athollblair Boy (4/1), Esprit De Corps (11/2), Mr Minerals (6/1), Deansgate (6/1), Big Les (11/1), Luis Vaz De Torres (12/1), Dirchill (20/1), Tarnhelm (200/1)

Verdict
A number of Newcastle regulars lock horns with the likes of PORTLEDGE, Athollblair Boy and Deansgate having covered almost as many miles at Gosforth Park as the resident Clerk of The Course James Armstrong. The handicapper is making life increasingly tough for the James Bethell-trained runner (closely matched with Luis Vaz De Torres) but such was the strength in-depth behind on his latest C&D win on January 12th, it's difficult to argue with the assessor. That race has yielded a couple of subsequent AW winners in the shape of Helovaplan (third) and Call Out Loud (fourth).
  1. Portledge
