  • Newcastle NAP - 16:15 - Back Parish Councillor

    Parish Councillor showed improved form to get off the mark over this course and distance in February, only winning by half a length but looking value for extra having been caught further back than ideal in a steadily-run race.

    His subsequent absence suggests he possibly hasn't been the easiest to train, but the runner-up has done her bit for the form with four wins, showing a useful level of form in the process.

    Parish Councillor has the potential to scale similar heights if standing more regular racing and this looks just an ordinary novice event in which he should be capable of conceding weight all round if ready to go after 10 months on the sidelines.

    Newcastle Next Best - 18:45 - Back Night On Earth

    Night On Earth took a step back in the right direction when finishing third at Chelmsford last time, doing well under the circumstances to be beaten only four lengths having gone off too hard at the head of affairs

    He weakened in the final 100 yards, just unable to sustain his effort under such aggressive tactics, while a lack of race fitness might also have been a factor after 10 weeks off.

    Either way, Night On Earth certainly shaped as if back in top form and it's surely just a matter of time before he takes advantage of a career-low mark having tumbled in the weights for his current yard.

    Newcastle Each-Way - 16:45 - Back Cold Stare

    Cold Stare is lightly raced on the all-weather for one of his age and experience and he showed enough when finishing fourth over this course and distance last time to suggest he could have a productive time of things this winter if his connections persevere with him.

    Beaten only two lengths at the line, he arguably deserved extra credit having been detached from the rest of the field in the early stages and this time he meets the winner, Sir Maxi, on 4 lb better terms and with Danny Tudhope back in the saddle.
