With only the Irish raider Jerry Russell
having shown any worthwhile bumper form, this race should go to one of the newcomers with the Nicky Henderson-trained FATHER JOHN
an obvious candidate. Both Henderson (3-6) and de Boinville (0-4) are rare visitors to the Tyne Valley so we should probably take the subtle hint, especially with fellow debutante Craigneiche doing the business at Market Rasen on Friday. Of the remainder, both Cockney Beau
(Micky Hammond) and Milanvera
(Phil Kirby) should be monitored in the market for any signs of stable confidence.
