What's The Scoop (11/4), Pinch Of Ginger (7/2), Graystown (7/2), Pads (5/1), Orioninverness (13/2), Sory (12/1), Early Boy (100/1)
With the exception of the consistent Pinch Of Ginger (awarded a race at Catterick last week) it's difficult to place a strong positive slant on any of the remainder. Orioninverness could feasibly appreciate the return to Newcastle, while the easing-in-the-weights Graystown could have a say granted a clear round of fencing (couldn't be guaranteed). However, with some trepidation we'll chance the 2m Hexham winner PADS. A longstanding maiden prior to that race (mainly over hurdles) he showed a determined attitude in testing conditions. Furthermore, his previous Sedgefield third to Skyhill was well advertised by that horse at Ayr on Thursday.
