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.

09 Impatient
£95,000 3-y-o, Montmartre gelding. Dam, placed on Flat in France, half-sister to fairly useful French hurdler (17f/2¼m winner) Sister Palma. Noteworthy newcomer.
11-2Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked3.33/11.75/147
2316 Boy De La Vis
Showed form in points and reasonable start under Rules when third in a bumper at Warwick for Robin Dickin 7 months ago. Merits respect starting out for a new yard.
11-2Charlotte JonesJames Moffattlocked4/14.5/113
03 Ballin Bay
£60,000 3-y-o, Milan gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser (stayed 3½m) Across The Bay. Wears hood.
11-2Brian HughesPauline Robsonlocked4.5/17/156
3313 Wee Baz

£30,000 5-y-o, Ocovango gelding. Dam, failed to complete in points, sister to moody but fairly useful hurdler/chaser (stayed 29f) Lively Baron. Runner-up only start in Irish points (May 1). Worthy of interest on debut.

011 Samillier

11-2Henry BrookeN W Alexanderlocked28/133/118
