I mentioned in yesterdays post that season even of the All-Weather Championships gets underway Tuesday at Newcastle. On the card at 3.45 they have the first of the Fast Track Qualifiers in the shape of the 6f Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Conditions Stakes.
Desert Safari jumped off the page at me when I took a peek at the entries. The Mark Johnston trained colt is top-rated having won his first two starts, his debut on Tapeta at Wolverhampton then on the Polytrack at Kempton. He was tried on Turf next finishing third in the Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar on heavy going last time. A big performance is anticipated back on Tapeta and hopefully, he will get the All-weather season off to a winning start for us. I have a bit of the 11-8 bpg overnight with Hills.
