Timeform on Riccardo

#7 Bucharest - Newcastle R4 (06:20)

Bucharest is immaculately bred, being a son of Japanese Triple Crown winner Deep Impact, and he made a winning debut in good style at this venue recently, stalking the leader before being unleashed entering the final furlong, finishing well. He is drawn well and retains the services of James MacDonald in the saddle, so is very difficult to oppose as he bids to maintain his unbeaten record. Lady Ahoy and Highmaster are two other to keep a close eye on.

#2 Centimental - Newcastle R6 (07:35)

Centimental showed a good turn of foot to finish second over this course and distance last time. She is making headway with every start and should go close again here. Spirituality is a progressive filly who poses a big threat, so should be treated with caution, while True Faith can fight it out for third.

#8 Riccardo - Newcastle R7 (08:10)

Riccardo has been impressive in recent runs, taking his tally to two for the season when boxing on steadily to win by a long neck in a Class 1 over this trip at Gosford last time. He rates highly here and should be capable of taking another step forward. Captain Solo is a consistent performer who has a couple of decent trails under his belt, so he should be ready to roll, while Green Mountain could also be a threat having been drawn in the perfect gate.
