2.40 Bak Rocky did very well in his first chase last time out when 2nd in a decent Kelso handicap . Longer trip and softer ground both Ok .
1/4pt win Bak Rocky @ 9/4
Selected Southwell – good to soft on this flat and sharp track
1.00The ultra consistent Gemirande keeps bumping into one , but stays on the same mark , hasn’t been getting beaten far at all and has form over C&D over hurdles , proven over fences and ground versatile
1/2pt win Gemirande @ 13/8
1.35 Unclo O is not the most consistent but does have form over C&d good enough to cause a surprise in this winnable heat , but preferably would like the ground to dry out a bit . Zuckerberg won his first race for almost 3 years at Sedgefield but both the 7 pound hit and the much quicker ground serious obstacles in his double quest .

3.35 Not a deep finale and the consistent form horse in Samatian has found himself a winning opportunity , proven at the trip , ground , this kind of track and on a workable mark.
1/4pt win Samatian @ 9/4
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
2.45 The move to the good stable of Archie Watson has certainly rekindled the well handicapped Tahonta as he was a close 4th over C&d last time out . The form is good , stays on the same mark and in a race for amateur riders will be very well handled by Brodie Hampson .
1/4pt win Tahonta @ 9/4
3.50 The front running Never Dark should arguably have done better the last twice, dropping in grade nd the ratings, but may have been unsuited by the stiff Newcastle circuit . Has run well here in both runs and the services of an able 5 pound claimer also helps .
1/4pt win Never Dark @7/2
4.20 Big ask for recent C&D winner Victory March , up sharply in the Peripeteia ratings and grade . Peripeteia certainly knows where the winning line is and impressed winning here in her first try at this longer trip , and could be up to the 5 pound hit .
1/4pt win Peripeteia @ 10/3
5.50 A competitive and good quality event , and the short list is long enough but happy to have a dabble on the ever reliable Light Up Our stars who holds his form well despite the stiff enough mark , well drawn and runs the track well .
