13:50 – 6f Betfair Backs Racing Welfare Chipchase Stakes (Group 3)

Sir Michael Stoute can land another course victory courtesy of the well-regarded colt MUBAKKER (NAP – 1 point win bet at 5/2). This Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned four-year-old is beautifully bred for all-weather racing given that he is a son of Speightstown and out of a Group 2 winner on Polytrack. It is therefore no surprise that he cost connections $500,000 as a yearling. He comes into this race defending an unbeaten record on the all-weather having won all three starts to date. He comfortably defeated the subsequent Ayr Gold Cup winner Angel Alexander as a two-year-old at Wolverhampton and then ran out an eight-length winner in a Kempton novice race back in September. He can be forgiven his defeat on soft ground at Ascot and bounced back with an impressive success over this course and distance 25 days ago.

14:25 – 5f Betfair Free Bet Streak Gosforth Park Cup Handicap (Class 2)

COPPER KNIGHT (0.5 point win bet at 8/1) has only run twice on the All Weather and both of those starts have been in this race. He won it two years ago and finished a close second here last year, so he is clearly well-suited by the conditions. His two wins last season included a Listed success at York, and he should be spot on for this after two runs already this month. He is well drawn in stall 12 and should make a bold bid from the front.

At a bigger price, I am also taking a chance on the recent Chelmsford winner LORD RIDDIFORD (0.5 point win bet at 20/1). He is 3-7 on artificial surfaces and although this will be his first visit to Newcastle, his high draw and prominent running style should give him a good chance.

15:35 – 2m ½ f Betfair Northumberland Plate Handicap (Class 2)

Trainer Alan King enjoyed a superb Royal Ascot and can register another winner on the Flat with his All Weather specialist RAINBOW DREAMER (0.5 point win bet at 7/1). This seven-year-old has won five of his six starts in this sphere and is a solid stayer over this extended two-mile trip. He drops back into handicap company today after running in the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes here last time out. There should be some improvement to come after that reappearance, and the excellent Hollie Doyle takes the ride again.

A strong case can also be made for the lightly-raced five-year-old COLLIDE (0.5 point win bet at 20/1), who won a Listed race in France and then scored in fine style at Chelmsford before being sent off as short as 6/1 for the Copper Horse Handicap at Royal Ascot last time out. Quick ground was to blame for that defeat, and it is interesting that he is turned out quickly after reportedly pleasing connections at home. This represents a step up in trip but this son of Frankel has shaped as though he’ll stay.
