Forecast

Merchant Of Venice (2/1), First Response (4/1), Humbert (5/1), Masham Star (7/1), Paparazzi (8/1), Trevithick (11/1), Vive La Difference (12/1), Tangled (20/1)

Verdict
A low draw can often prove disadvantageous over the straight mile at Newcastle (admittedly more pronounced in fields of 10+ runners) and those in the outer berths here don't make a great deal of appeal. Meanwhile, First Response (8), PAPARAZZI (4) and Vive La Difference (2) have interwoven C&D form lines in an otherwise difficult looking Class 4 handicap. For small-stakes, and with a 3lb weights sway, the token advice is to side with the ultra-consistent Tracy Waggott-trained runner who may just strip fitter than when beaten by First Response on his return to action in mid-January.
  1. Paparazzi
  2. First Response
  3. Humbert
