Timeform select the best bets at Newcastle and Sunderland on Wednesday.
"Milldean Topaz has never been one to make life easy for himself with inconsistency at the boxes, yet that hasn’t halted him from making up into a top-grade performer at Sunderland."
Having made the breakthrough in A3 company three starts back, LIGHTFOOT JAMAL (Trap 1, 14:54 Newcastle) has lost little caste in defeat both starts in A2 class since, producing just about her best effort yet when runner-up four days ago. Her future may lie over further in due course, but she's very much the type to make further inroads over the standard four-bend trip and, with a pace burn-up anticipated up the middle, the daughter of Candlelight King can bide her time early and come home best of all on the rails.
Scratch runner CLONCUNNY DOMO (Trap 6, 15:09 Newcastle) is fancied to come out on top in this handicap over the 640-metre trip. A back-to-back winner in A3 class earlier this year, he arrives having run well on two of his last three starts over C&D, beaten in a slick time when runner-up latest. This doesn't rate the strongest of handicaps on paper and the son of Skywalker Farloe is fancied to play a lead role from the striped jacket.
MILLDEAN TOPAZ (Trap 2, 19:26 Sunderland) has never been one to make life easy for himself with inconsistency at the boxes, yet that hasn't halted him from making up into a top-grade performer at Sunderland, posting arguably a career-best display despite meeting with defeat seven days ago. An October 18' whelp, his make-up in the blue jacket looks a good one in this line-up and he can turn handy and announce his presence on proceedings from the three-quarter point.
