Nick Shiambouros hopes to start the new week with a couple of winners from the meeting at Newcastle...

Back Nastenka in the 13:50 at Newcastle

13:20 Newcastle - Crimson Lake


Crimson Lake should get off the mark in this maiden.

This Makfi filly finished third to Icespire at Salisbury last month. She put in some good work in the closing stages, but never had a realistic chance of catching the impressive winner. She is improving with racing and looks like the horse to beat. At present she is trading at 3.259/4 on the exchange which is about right.

Debutant Enable merits consideration. She comes from a decent family and these connections must be respected. I think she will do better over time, but is not without a chance.


13:50 Newcastle - Nastenka


I am going to take a chance with Nastenka in this interesting contest.

This filly put in a much improved effort last time out when finishing second to Pirate Look at Redcar earlier this month. She ran on really well in the closing stages but the winner proved the stronger near the line. This was by far her best piece of form to date and should move forward once again. She is currently trading at 9.08/1 on the exchange and have backed her at that price.

Gymnaste is the short priced favourite at 2.3811/8. She cost a fair bit at the sales and connections will be anxious to get a win out of her. She looks short enough to me, but should be ready to do herself justice.

Dubai Dunes sets a fair standard based on her close second to Elas Ruby earlier this month. She represents top connections and must be respected.
