Alfred Richardson missed the break but still bolted up over track and trip last time. He's been hit with an 8lb rise as a consequence, so marginal preference for win purposes is for FIRST FLIGHT, who is back on his last winning mark and hinted his turn was fast approaching when returning to form with a solid third over C&D latest. Black Isle Boy is better known for his sprint exploits but he's 2lb below his last winning rating and there are clues from his breeding he may well stay 1m at the first attempt.
Prediction : 1st First Flight 2nd Black Isle Boy 3rd Alfred Richardson

Lexington Palm enjoyed the run of the race when making all over 6f at Catterick last time but she may be vulnerable at this expansive track now stepped back up in trip under penalty. Preference is for ARMS OF THE ANGEL, who has shown some ability in two outings over 1m, including when third here on debut, and may benefit from this drop back in distance. Wolverhampton seller winner Queen Of Scheme looks best of the rest.
Prediction : 1st Arms Of The Angel 2nd Lexington Palm 3rd Queen Of Scheme

Not After Midnight weakened inside the final furlong when last seen over 7f here 12 months ago and is worth a market check now dropping back in trip on her return from a break. With the benefit of a recent run to her name, however, THIRLMERE shades the vote in the hope she can step up on her 5f debut fourth here now granted this additional furlong. Wind Storm, having her second run for Karl Burke, is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Thirlmere 2nd Not After Midnight 3rd Wind Storm

18:45 Newcastle

Twilight made it four wins from her last six starts when scoring at Leicester and Tim Easterby's sprinter has to be respected, although a further 4lb rise will obviously make life tougher. Island Of Life is interesting stepping up from 5f having caught the eye with some staying-on finishes in recent times. However, preference is for handicap debutant PLAY MATE, who was reportedly unsuited by good ground at Ayr when trying seven furlongs and should prefer dropping back in distance on her all-weather return.
Prediction : 1st Play Mate 2nd Twilight 3rd Island Of Life

19:15 Newcastle

Mossy's Lodge has to be respected following her victory over C&D at the beginning of the month, but her penalty means that she is 2lb wrong at these weights and that has to be a concern. With that in mind, the preference is for I AM DANDY, who finish second at the same meeting and he arrives here 2lb well in. Others to note are Cadeaux Boxer and Totally Magic.
Prediction : 1st I Am Dandy 2nd Mossys Lodge 3rd Cadeaux Boxer

19:45 Newcastle

KAVORA was only denied by a head when finishing second over 7f here on Saturday, for which she is due to go up 1lb so she's well in at these weights and is taken to go one better this evening. Highwayman has run well in defeat a couple of times in recent months and he could make the frame once again, while Silk Mill Blue has won twice here in his last four starts and he is an obvious threat to the selection.
Prediction : 1st Kavora 2nd Silk Mill Blue 3rd Highwayman

20:15 Newcastle

KROY returned to winning form over C&D last month after several decent efforts on the all-weather earlier in the year and has been fairly treated with a 3lb rise by the handicapper. Connor Murtagh's 5lb claim should come in very handy and he can account for the likes of Lucky Violet, who found soft ground too tough at Ayr, and Rebel State, who has been running consistently well this year and will benefit from his rider's 7lb claim.
Prediction : 1st Kroy 2nd Lucky Violet 3rd Rebel State

20:45 Newcastle

LUCKY LODGE's last course appearance saw him finish a neck second at the beginning of last month and he has since gone on from that to take advantage of his lower mark on turf with a win at Redcar last Monday. He is turned out quickly after finishing third at the same track on Tuesday and can continue his recent good run of form. Ventura Secret is respected with first-time cheekpieces applied, while Round The Island completes the shortlist due to his recent consistency.
Prediction : 1st Lucky Lodge 2nd Ventura Secret 3rd Round The Island
