Look To Thomas For Big Win At Newcastle
It is Northumberland Plate day at Newcastle and for the first time the meeting will take place on the all-weather and Polarisation looks a horse capable of landing a big pot for Charlie Appleby and James Doyle.
Newcastle To Serve It Up
But the best bet on the Newcastle card may well be in the Northumberland Vase.
The consolation race for the Northumberland Plate features Dannyday who is sure to be popular as the four-year-old was prominent in the betting for the big race of the day but he might have to settle for minor honours behind Poyle Thomas.
The seven-year-old is more exposed than some of his younger rivals but he returned to action with a 2nd at Newmarket last month…
…after missing a full season and being off the track for almost two years.
That was a fair run in a competitive race from Ralph Beckett’s charge and that was after failing to get into his stride at the start of the race. It’ll be the first Irish Derby meeting in a good few years that Fran Berry won’t be at but that new association can follow up their Royal Ascot win with a big Saturday winner courtesy of Poyle Thomas.
Poyle Thomas – 3.40 Newcastle.
