Today’s horse racing preview selections come from Newcastle racecourse..
18.45 Newcastle – 32Red.com Fillies Handicap (6f0 (0-80)
With the field all becoming reasonably exposed I would like to think Declan Carroll’s filly Tilly Trotter can come on from her fourth over course and distance last month in this class. She was only defeated to two lengths she looks like one of the main contenders here.
Back a length that day was Fruit Salad when in receipt of 5lb, she only gets the 2lb here this evening however she does have a good claimer on board in Lewis Edmunds, But the tentative vote goes to Danny Tudhope’s ride here.
TILLY TROTTER : 1pt each way @ 15/2 (BOG)
20.15 Newcastle-Sun Bets On The App Handicap (0-60) (8f)
Kevin Frost’s Born to Reason will have to step up again if he is to win here, however his win in a 0-65 at Wolverhampton two runs back saw him win a shade cosily I thought despite the winning overall distance of a head. The fourth Top Offer has recently franked the form.
Main danger looks to come form Tifl and Urban Spirit, the latter ran a creditable fourth in a seller at Redcar, ran here on career debut over 6f without figuring this mile looks his limit. Tifl I think has been knocking on the door despite his form reads. Heather Main’s four year old has not shown much around Kempton on three visits, however does get the services of PJ McDonald this evening.
BORN TO REASON : 3pt Win @ 5/4 (BOG)
