Newcastle: SUNDAY SOVEREIGN | 6:45pm William Hill Gosforth Park Cup Handicap | Dom’s Pick
The beginning of Newcastle’s most prestigious flat meeting kickstarts on Friday evening and our team have outlined our best bet of the day.
Running right back to form in a competitive York handicap last time, Sunday Sovereign could still be well in off a mark of 98 for Tim Easterby.
He holds some very strong Irish form for previous handler Paddy Twomey, but things haven’t quite gone his way since his switch across the sea.
However, that effort in May was his most positive for this trainer after being outclassed in previous Class 1 company and this is the most consistent string of runs he’s had since 2019.
This is Silvestre de Sousa’s only ride of the day and that could take some reading into, with the pilot currently operating at around an 11% strike-rate.
