Nick Shiambouros returns with a selection from Yarmouth and one from the all-weather meeting at Newcastle...

Back Commander Cole in the 14:30 at Newcastle

13:50 Yarmouth - Bequia


Bequia should go close in this interesting maiden.

This filly shaped well on debut when finishing second to Elliptical at HQ in August.

She put in some good work in the closing stages, and finished the race with good energy. The winner has since finished eighth in a Group 3 at Salisbury, but had trouble at the start. I think she is entitled to move forward and is attractively priced at 4.1 on the exchange.

Loving is the favourite at 2.982/1. She ran well enough behind Rosie Briar at Haydock, but looks short enough in the market. She rates as the main danger, but I think the selection has more scope for improvement.


14:30 Newcastle - Commander Cole


Commander Cole is worth another chance in this maiden run on the Tapeta.

This colt cost me a fair bit when disappointing behind Trick Of The Light at Nottingham last month. He was collared fully two furlongs from home, and faded out of contention to finish sixth. He had previously finished a promising second in a Sandown maiden and is best judged on that effort.

His conditioner applies headgear today and hopefully this will have the desired effect. Currently he is trading at 5.59/2 on the exchange.

Re Run could be the danger. He refused to settle in the early stages when finishing fourth to Naval Warfare at Ayr last month and is better than the bare form suggests. At present he is trading at 4.47/2 on the exchange.
