One runs up at Newcastle on Tuesday evening that caught my eye in the entries for a couple of reasons and the filly is worth a speculative punt.
Best bet for the horse racing at NewcastleThe race I am interested in is the 6f Betway Conditions Stakes at 7.00. Venturous, Judicial and Mehmento are all decent types with some fair form to their names but my eye was caught by Ex Gratia. An impressive winner at Southwell last month on only her second start the four-year-old filly is open to any amount of improvement on what will be just her third career start. By top Aussie sprinter Exceed and Excel out of French Listed sprint winner Beta an evening meeting on Tyneside isn't perhaps where owner Kirsten Rausing would have expected to see her filly run but here we are. I was very taken with the way she won at Southwell and bearing in mind Jane Chapple-Hyam doesn't send many to Newcastle and that she comes for this rather than an arguably easier engagement at Southwell later this week I think the filly is worth a punt at a tasty looking 10-1 with Hills overnight.
