There are four bets for today’s superb racing at Newcastle.

Newcastle Tips

13:45 – 6f Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (Class 2)

Two horses that will appreciate the return to Newcastle are VICTORY HEIGHTS (0.5 point win bet at 16/1) and MOUNTAIN BRAVE (0.5 point win bet at 20/1) and both are available at big prices.

Victory Heights has won on two of his three previous visits to Gosforth Park and was even tried in Listed and Group 2 company after winning his maiden here last season. Having also won on Tapeta at Wolverhampton, it is easy to forgive his two below par efforts this year as they came on All Weather Finals Day at Lingfield (Polytrack) and on turf at Doncaster when last seen (now 0-4 in that sphere). He has been freshened up for this, gets in off bottom weight as the only three-year-old in the race and has the excellent Luke Morris back on board.

Mountain Brave has to bounce back from a couple of defeats but one of those came in a Listed race at Nottingham. Prior to that, she was a winner at Doncaster and won a lower grade race comfortably over this course and distance last year. Just like my other selection in the race, she is well drawn, and she should remain competitive off her handicap mark of 94.

14:20 – 6f William Hill Chipchase Stakes (Group 3)

This looks an excellent opportunity for the classy KHUZAAM (NAP – 2 point win bet at 11/4) to improve his already impressive All Weather record. With four wins and four seconds from his eight starts on an artificial surface, Roger Varian’s son of Kitten’s Joy comes here as the top-rated runner in the field. This represents a drop in class as he contested the Group 2 bet365 Mile at Sandown last time out but couldn’t get close to arguably the best miler in training, Palace Pier. Although he is yet to race over six furlongs, he should relish the stiff uphill finish at Newcastle. There is likely to be a strong pace and that will also bring his proven stamina in to play. The three-year-old Diligent Harry should go well and I am also a fan of the returning Tabdeed and the consistent Chil Chil.

15:30 – 2m½f William Hill Northumberland Plate Handicap (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)

TRUESHAN (1 point win bet at 7/2) looks a top class stayer and can defy top weight in this prestigious handicap. Having progressed nicely through maiden, novice and handicap races, Alan King’s stable star successfully stepped up to Listed company before ending last season with an emphatic victory in the Group 2 Long Distance Cup on Champions Day at Ascot. He made a very pleasing return to action at Chester last month, finishing ¾-length behind the dual Group 1 winner Japan. That set him up nicely for a tilt at the Ascot Gold Cup but he was forced to miss that engagement due to fast ground and comes here instead. He is far superior to today’s rivals (7lb+ on official ratings) and will benefit from the 5lb claim of jockey Rhys Clutterbuck. Dubious Affair, a progressive stayer for Charlie Fellowes, is next best ahead of Mildenberger and Galata Bridge.
