Race 1 Newcastle 12-12 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 20f
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.
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.
Still winless after 21 runs and below form eighth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Hexham (16.2f) 34 days ago. Others appeal more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lightly-raced maiden. 100/1, pulled up in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (17.2f) 56 days ago. Hard to enthuse over.
Eleven runs since last win in 2021. Pulled up in handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.4f) 27 days ago. Cheekpieces are reached for now.
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.
Race 2 Newcastle 13:17 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 23f
Very much regained progressive thread over fences of late, scoring narrowly at Wetherby (19.4f) and relishing the step back up to 25f to follow up at Catterick 3 weeks ago. Unlikely he's finished winning yet on that evidence.
Point winner who tasted success twice in maiden/novice hurdles last term (at up to 23.6f). Lacked sharpness back from 7 months off/following wind op sent chasing at Aintree (19.9f) 33 days ago but feasible to expect improvement.
Jonjo O'Neill Jr
Pretty reliable since switched to fences and deservedly notched second success in this sphere when accounting for 10 rivals at Hereford (25.2f, good to soft) 4 weeks ago, going on again 4 out and ridden out. Expected to go well again.
Fairly useful winning hurdler who fell first on chase debut at Carlisle in October and again failed to complete (through no fault of his own) when hampered and unseating at Kelso 2 weeks ago. Remains early days at least.
N W Alexander
Fairly useful hurdler/chaser at best for Eoin Doyle. Shaped as if as good as ever on third start for present yard when third over fences at Carlisle (24.5f) in October but not in same form tackling 31.5f at Musselburgh since. Quickly drops back in trip now.
Who's In The Box
Winless since 2020 and, having been well backed, failed to complete for third time from last 5 starts when falling in race won by Ladronne at Catterick (25.2f) 3 weeks ago. Still, not out of things from this sort of mark.
Dual chase winner during 2020 and proved he retains plenty of ability back from 2 years off when runner-up at Wetherby (19.4f) in March. However, he was well held when falling 4 out on return at that venue in October. Not the easiest to weigh up.
Race 3 Newcastle 15:22 NH Flat Race (Class 5) 16f
£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.
Jonjo O'Neill Jr
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.
£60,000 3-y-o, Milan gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser (stayed 3½m) Across The Bay. Wears hood.
Half-brother to 3 winners and showed ability when third of 12 in a bumper at Kelso last month. Could improve from that, so not one to discount.
Had To Be Hugo
£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.
£2,000 3-y-o, Black Sam Bellamy gelding. Brother to a winner, and half-brother to fairly useful hurdler Lieutenant Miller and fair chaser Avec Espoir, stays 25f. Represents an in-form yard.
Second in a point bumper but down the field on Rules debut at Ayr and others make more appeal.
N W Alexander
Better Be Definite
Clovis Du Berlais gelding. Dam (c83/h99), 2m-2½m hurdle winner, half-sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser (stayed 3m) Junction Fourteen.
Harriet Graham &
Ask My Heather
Well-held fourth in a bumper at Sedgefield first time out and others make more appeal.
£16,000 5-y-o, Balko gelding. Half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Raya Time. Maiden Irish pointer, failed to complete last 3 starts (latest May 15).
