Newcastle & Exeter
2.30 - Astracad was a good second of five last time at Huntingdon over 2m 4f from a mark of 105, showing that he’s still competitive. Down a further pound today and deserves to get his head in front again after three places from four runs this season. Back up to 2m 7+f here on good to soft can see him go close, Sam Twiston-Davies rides.

4.00 - Juge Et Parti has had a couple of good places so far this term including last time at Ludlow over 2m 5f when a close up second, well clear of third. A furlong further today, a repeat of that run would see him with a good chance, but he looks progressive, so hopeful of improvement too. A good run expected, Sam rides.
3.45 - Summit Like Herbie is a bumper winner and showed some good improvement last time when upped to 2m 5+f to take second at a big price on his 5th hurdles outing. He makes his handicap debut here from a mark of 106, which looks reasonable, but with more to come looks to be good each way value. Jamie Bargary rides.
4.15 - Pink Gin won nicely over 3m 1f at Wincanton last time from a mark of 105 and is up 4lbs for that. Also ran well here over today’s trip to take 4th place on seasonal debut two outings previously from 2lbs lower than today. Looks to have another good each way chance today, in good form and can go close. Mark Grant rides.
- Good Boy Bobby (4/9), Southwell, 4th March.
