Preview 27 June 2008

7.25 Newcastle ESH Gosforth Park Handicap sprint class 2 5F Good Good to soft

Horses to consider

Hows She Cuttin (4/1) - Likely to go of at quite a short price for this sprint handicap as she is the first of the runners to be turned out from the lightening course breaking listed race at Ayr at the weekend just gone and it will be interesting to see how she gets on under conditions that should be much more to her liking in which she can maintain the gallop over and this could well be her race this season with everything set for a big run with Thursday racing giving draw clues to being drawn high in this handicap even though on the five furlong track a low draw in this race has been the place to be. The run at Ayr just five days ago was under conditions that would have been more then fast enough for this daughter of Shinko Forest and the mare will be much more at home under tonight's conditions and the yard are starting to find winners, even though the string usually continue there form over winter in the earlier months of the year. Low weight is eye catching and the dazzler is kept for the ride.

Buachaill Dona (10/1) -providing it stays dry this talented gelding could give Dandy Nichols yet another sprint handicap winner this season and a 3rd in this race in the last ten years. Drawn from a low draw he has plenty of pace to make his own running and if ridden in a aggressive manner he can justify being the first choice of the stable in this handicap. Hasn't been overly tried this season so far since getting back from Dubai where his six furlong run behind turn on the style stands up amongst some of the best form in this race as he dwelt at the start and still made eye catching movement in the race to finish a close enough 3rd place. The run at Chester over five furlongs he lost his chance early with a tardy start and given that track suiting prominent runner he done well to finish as close as he did, has had limited amount of runs over the minimum trip but in my view he looks a typical sprint type for this trip and if getting away well could well take all the beating. Was highly fancied in this last season before being withdrawn of account of the ground.

Green Park (7/1) - Last years winner has been well fancied for some handicaps this season and hasn't landed a blow in those races and now finds himself defending his title in this race of a mark lower then he won off 12 months ago and the run in the same Chester race as Buchaill Dona should see him go close with conditions and track much more to his suiting. Another that may not have the best draw based on the races yesterday, but a winner from a low number last year shows that it isn't totally cut and dry and with some ease in the ground he could start Richard Fahey run of landing big northern handicaps off well here. His performance that he recorded in this race last season is in the top 3 races recorded by the runners in this race so the fact that he is at the right end of the handicap is a added bonus and should go close in this race this season.

Selection  Buachaill Dona 1 pt @ 10/1 (14sBF) & Green Park 1 pt @ 7/1 (8'sBF)
