ROAR home LION HEARTED (nap) in Newcastle’s 6.00.
Michael Appleby’s ace has been a revelation for his new yard — with an unbeaten record of three wins out of three runs.
He won his last start here by six lengths, but amazingly escapes a penalty for that impressive win.
It would be a shock if he did not land the four-timer with ease.
GIACOMO CASANOVA (5.30 Newcastle, nb) can charm his rivals. Kevin Ryan’s flying machine bolted up over track & trip last month and a 7lb rise looks lenient.
He goes well here and will be hard to beat if he’s anywhere near top form.
NAP: 6.00 Newcastle – Lion Hearted ‘On a roll and escapes a penalty for latest win’
NEXT BEST: 5.30 Newcastle – Giacomo Casanova ‘Bolted up over C&D last time and 7lb rise looks lenient’
TREBLE: 3.35 Carlisle – Thosedaysaregone ‘Struggled at Ascot but big chance now dropped in class’
THOSEDAYSAREGONE (3.35 Carlisle, treble) can bounce back to form.
The Charles Byrnes-trained six-year-old found things a bit too hot when fourth in better race at Ascot last month.
He looks to have found a great opportunity here back in Class 3 company.
