Timeform pick out three bets from Newcastle on Tuesday evening...
"...a 4 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him from striking again..."
Iain Jardine could hold a strong hand here. Something Brewing seemed to relish the longer trip when landing a C&D jumpers' bumper 10 days ago, well on top at the finish, and looks worth siding with on his first Flat start over two miles. New stablemate Hediddodinthe is interesting up in trip, particularly if the betting speaks in his favour, while Indian Red arrives on the back of three decent efforts this year and completes the shortlist.
Solid Man caught the eye when third on his handicap debut at Lingfield last month, running green/hanging left early in the straight, before finishing with a flourish to be beaten just a neck. He certainly showed enough to suggest he is up to winning from this mark and should prove a tough nut to crack here, with the prospect of more to come after just four starts. Odds On Oli is gradually getting better with each run and may prove the biggest threat ahead of Dark Freedom.
Athollblair Boy deserves plenty of credit for his recent C&D victory, winning with a bit in hand having still had plenty to do two furlongs out. He is clearly thriving at present and a 4 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him from striking again for the Daniel Loughnane yard. Dark Alliance continued his rich vein of form when winning at Wolverhampton and he has to be feared. Fellow last-time-out winners Insurplus and Deansgate can do battle for minor honours.
