Newcastle’s NAP: ROYAL PROSPECT | 6:30pm MansionBet Proud Partners Of AWC Handicap | Dom’s Pick
A former course winner, the six-year-old gelding ran a cracker on his first crack over the mile trip at Redcar earlier this month when finishing third.
That was off this mark of 57 and remaining just 2lb higher than his last winning rating, he looks sure to have a say if performing in the same vein on his return to the northeast.
Oliver Stammers takes some handy weight off his back and he can add to his creditable all-weather record of two successes.
NB: EPONINA | 7:00pm MansionBet Beaten By A Head Handicap
Mick Appleby’s mare steps back to seven furlongs after a five-month break, where she was last seen carrying a lump of weight to second at Leicester under Erika Parkinson.
The conditional partners the Zoffany daughter once again here and the ultra-consistent seven-year-old goes well fresh so may present punters with a bit of value in this race.
David O’Meara’s Tamaska has been denied at this track the last twice by only one other rival so looks the obvious alternative for Jason Watson.
