Race 1 Newcastle 12:-12 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 20f

3211 Blue Shark
20/1, left his previous efforts behind to get off the mark in 10-runner handicap hurdle at Ffos Las (20f) 32 days ago. Form has been franked so he's expected to be bang there off 4 lb higher mark.
10-10Jamie BraceJonjo O'Neilllocked3/12/133
262 Heros De Moutiers
Off mark in Irish points at fourth attempt and best of three runs over hurdles when fourth of 7 in novice at Uttoxeter (15.8f) 26 days ago. Up in trip for his handicap bow with more required.
12-0Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked6/111/183
3415 Brickadank
Still winless after 21 runs and below form eighth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Hexham (16.2f) 34 days ago. Others appeal more.
10-2Joshua ThompsonMicky Hammondlocked9/13.5/161
216 Aazza
Fair hurdles winner who has failed to go on in three runs over fences this term. Reverts to this sphere now and she can't be discounted off an easing mark.
11-6Dylan JohnstonRose Dobbinlocked9/12.5/172
1714 That's Your Lottie
Remains a maiden after 22 runs. 5/1, only ninth of 13 in handicap hurdle at Musselburgh (23.8f) 17 days ago. Has work to do.
10-3Emma Smith-ChastonKatie Scottlocked12/111/18
285 Coup De Gold
It's now twenty two runs since his last win in 2019 but he posted a respectable sixth in handicap hurdle at Market Rasen last time. No forlorn hope.
11-8Peter KavanaghDavid Thompsonlocked12/17.5/138
1712 Ex S'Elance
C&D winner who posted a creditable seventh of 13 in handicap hurdle at Musselburgh (23.8f) 17 days ago. It's fifteen runs since his last win in 2021 though.
10-8Daire DavisVictor Thompsonlocked14/18/143
918 Ballyfarsoon
Not disgraced when fourth of 12 in handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.4f) 9 days ago. It's twenty runs since his last win in 2019, however.
10-2Patrick WadgePeter Winkslocked33/128/115
564 Kings Justice
Lightly-raced maiden. 100/1, pulled up in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (17.2f) 56 days ago. Hard to enthuse over.
11-9Benjamin AbbottSam Allwoodlocked40/166/165
279 Dakota Beat
Eleven runs since last win in 2021. Pulled up in handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.4f) 27 days ago. Cheekpieces are reached for now.
11-1Conor RabbittJohn Nortonlocked40/128/130
79517 Royal Flush
Poor maiden. Off over 2 years since coming in ninth of 11 in handicap hurdle at Kelso (20.9f). Hard to enthuse over on his comeback run.
10-2Thomas WillmottSimon Waughlocked50/1125/1150

Race 2 Newcastle 12:-42 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

2775 Crebilly
£100,000 buy for top connections after finishing third in an Irish point and showed plenty starting out under Rules when third in a Huntingdon bumper (heavy) in March. Should make his mark over jumps.
11-4Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked1.5/11.88/125
292 Ballabawn
Cosily off mark in Irish points at the second attempt in May and shaped as if better for the run (despite being well backed) when fourth on hurdling debut at Ayr 29 days ago. Likely to improve.
11-4Brian HughesDonald McCainlocked2.5/11.62/135
286 Hashtag Lord
Showed fair form first time out when fifth of 25 in maiden hurdle at Navan (15.8f) in February. Not quite at same level both starts for new yard but it remains early days and may yet do better.
11-4Danny McMenaminJames Ewartlocked3.5/13.5/10
5277 San Roch
Showed some ability in bumpers but makes his hurdling debut after 17 months off and maybe best watched.
11-4Jamie HamiltonTim Easterbylocked14/125/179
2210 Top Cloud
Successful in a point bumper and produced a promising first effort under Rules when third at Hexham in March. Not so good on hurdling debut there 8 months later but probably needed the run.
11-4Sean QuinlanChris Grantlocked14/18/143
3411 A Shining Moon
Showed fair form when runner-up on the first of 2 starts in bumpers but failed to progress on the Flat for Eve Johnson Houghton and sold for just 1,000 gns in October.
11-4 Tom MidgleyPaul Midgleylocked20/128/140
1612 She's A Steal
Modest in bumpers for Tim Reed and looks a longer-term project over hurdles.
10-11Craig NicholRose Dobbinlocked40/140/10
169 Tommy's Fortune
Modest in bumpers and not given a hard time when well held in a pair of novice hurdles. Handicaps presumably up after this.
11-4Thomas DowsonTjade Collierlocked66/166/10
1433 Blame The Farrier
Unplaced in bumpers and went with little promise sent hurdling at Cartmel in July.
11-4Callum BewleyDavid Thompsonlocked100/1200/1100
2211 Peppermill
Well held completed start in novice hurdles (in tongue strap latest outing).
10-11Conor O'FarrellMaurice Barneslocked200/1300/150
36913 Turbulent Power
Poor maiden on Flat who offered little in 2 bumpers in late 2021.

Race 3 Newcastle 14:52 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 16f

2115 My Macho Man
Yet to taste success following 19 attempts over hurdles but there were certainly positives to glean from his effort in a C&D handicap on debut for new yard last month when 2 lb 'wrong' at the weights. Able to race off correct mark this time and merits respect.
10-7Bruce LynnKatie Scottlocked8/12.5/169
1611 Misty Mani
Returned from a break in fine form during the summer, winning 3 on the bounce and by no means disgraced when fourth at Sedgefield in November. Likely he would've been placed but for unseating rider at the last at Southwell recently and not without each-way hope.
11-0 Tom MidgleyPeter Nivenlocked9/17/122
2537 Russian Virtue
Regressed following promising debut in this sphere last term and he's winless following 21 starts on the Flat. However, he has posted several creditable efforts on the level this year and is interesting off a reduced mark now returned to hurdles.
11-2Nathan MoscropRebecca Menzieslocked10/16.5/135
1321 Copper Fox
Didn't need to improve when winning mediocre Uttoxeter maiden in June and put in his place switched to handicap company in 2 subsequent starts. Will need to find improvement from somewhere if he's to emerge on top here.
12-1Brian HughesDonald McCainlocked11/15/155
1616 Zara's Universe
:Long-standing maiden who has several decent enough bits and pieces of form to her name but, chances are, she'll find one or two too good once again having unseated rider on recent seasonal reappearance at Sedgefield.
10-6Conor RabbittAndrew Crooklocked14/18/143
368 Six One Nine
Successful over fences here in February and returned to form when runner-up in a Musselburgh handicap chase last month. Record in this sphere is hardly inspiring, though, and it's best to look elsewhere.
11-1Danny McMenaminChris Grantlocked18/13.33/182
273 Bottle Hill
Minor promise in 2 starts over hurdles for James Ewart last term and though well backed ahead of his return/chase debut for new yard at Southwell, he showed little aptitude for that game. Likely to struggle back in this sphere, too, off what looks a harsh mark.
11-11Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked20/120/10
10610 Bulls Aye
Well below par on the Flat this year and while he wasn't entirely disgraced returned to hurdles in a Sedgefield novice in August, a step forward will be needed if he's to play a leading role on handicap debut in this sphere.
11-0Conor O'FarrellIain Jardinelocked20/122/110
2117 More To Follow
Showed little in two hurdling outings for Andrew Slattery and it's been a case of more of the same in as many starts for present yard. Now tried in a hood.
10-6Ross ChapmanDaragh Bourkelocked50/1100/1100
6412 Archive
Best effort for a while when fourth at Hexham in June but, unsurprisingly, he has failed to back that up in 2 subsequent starts and losing run stretches back to 2019.
10-11Emma Smith-ChastonSuzzanne Francelocked66/120/170
346 Charlie's Rockstar
Runner-up completed start in Irish points in April and showed first form under Rules when fourth of 8 in maiden hurdle at Sedgefield in October. Subsequent handicap debut effort was poor, though, and now tried in a tongue strap.
