Forecast

Candelisa (7/2), Fortamour (4/1), Little Jo (5/1), Gallipoli (11/2), Inhale (11/2), Los Camachos (11/2), Dawaaleeb (6/1), Insurplus (7/1), Lion Hearted (16/1), Woodside Wonder (16/1), Aegeus (28/1)

Verdict
Strong numerically and equally so in terms of competitiveness. Candelisa continues in positive form while a case can also be made from a handicapping perspective for Dawaaleeb (2-2 AW) and Gallipoli. Unlike Jim Goldie's standing-dish Insurplus, Jim Gallagher's Los Camachos is yet to race at Newcastle. However, he is effective on Tapeta and his recent 6f Kempton win appeals as rock-solid form. Nevertheless, we'll elect to side with the progressive four-year-old's Fortamour and INHALE. The former has C&D experience but the latter arguably more potential. She is the sole mount of Hayley Turner (3-13; 23% at Newcastle (AW)) on today's card.
  1. Inhale
  2. Fortamour
  3. Los Camachos
