I tipped a Charlie Appleby newcomer yesterday and it didn't exactly go to plan, Montesecco racing wide and far to keen early before fading out of it into fifth at Kempton; make a note of the name, he will win races I am sure. There's a bit of Déjà vu about todays bet as I am on a Charlie Appleby debutant again; hopefully the result is better.
Best bet for the horse racing at NewcastleThe race to look for is the mile Play Coral Racing-Super-Series For Free Novice Stakes at 4.20 and the horse to be on Blue Trail. By unbeaten champion two-year-old Teofilo he is out of Pietrafiore (Dubawi) who was a winner on the All-weather at Wolverhampton for Appleby in her racing career as well as on turf in France when moving to the yard of Henri-Alex Pantall. There are plenty of winners in the family and having taken their time with this colt you would expect him to be ready on debut. I have taken a chance at the 5-1. Stormy Ocean is feared if stepping up for his previous experience in the summer whilst a few quid has been spent on Chrysos as a yearling and then a two-year-old so I assume he at least looks the part.
