With Bangor-On-Dee, Southwell and Ayr all abandoned on Wednesday, an ongoing issue at Southwell following extensive flooding from the River Greet across the estate last month, we are a little starved of action again on Wednesday. We do have meetings at Newcastle on the Tapeta and Kempton on the Polytrack and I fancy one at Newcastle.
Best bet for the horseracing at NewcastleThe race I am interested in is the 1m4f BetUK Take Time Out During SGWeek23! Handicap at 3.37. Raceshare, the organisation I have shares in Treasure Time with run La Pulga but the four-year-olds not for me in this. I like the look of Franberri who was an eye catcher on debut when second at Yarmouth in the summer over 1m2f before finishing third at Ripon over this trip perhaps a little disappointing on the day. She had a short break and returned to the track, here over this track and trip, to win a maiden earlier this month looking on fine fettle. An opening handicap mark of 79 sees her in here with bottom weight and I think that OR could be lenient. By Frankel out of Altesse Imperiale she is a half-sister to several winners all of whom have been rated 90+ in their careers. At 9-4 overnight I think she is well worth a punt.
