CHERRY can be a sweet bet for Newcastle punters.
CHERRY OAK (6.15, nap) stayed on well in a better grade here last time and is just 1lb higher than when winning with a bit in hand over course and distance in March last year.
KNOW THE SCORE (3.25 Bangor, nb) was bought for £380,000 after his Irish point-to-point success and repaid just over one per cent of that purchase price when winning in good style over hurdles at Hexham.
This step up in trip will play to his strengths.
CORRIEBEN REIVER (3.45 Ayr, treble) showed a good attitude when staying on to win a Newcastle bumper.
This likeable sort has lots of scope about him.
