I will be having a go up in Geordieland on Friday evening as they race under the lights on the Tapeta at Newcastle. The cold snap continues though no doubt it’s T-shirt and shorts weather for the locals up there.
The meeting gets underway at 4.15. I wanted t back Alkaamel in the Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Handicap but won’t as he is odds-on. At 6.45 it is the 7f Sunracing.co.uk Handicap. False ID likes it here, two from two over track and trip and was second on his other visit when tried over the mile. 7lb claimer Laura Coughlan gets the leg-up and she has been riding as well as anyone recently – 2 wins from 9 rides this month – so she is seen as another positive as of course is her 7lb claim. I have a bit of the 5-1.
