Verdict

Locally trained runners have a habit of doing well at Newcastle and despite appearing to be somewhat more exposed than most, KIWI BAY still looks to be well handicapped on the pick of his form and we take Michael Dods' inmate to gain compensation for a recent defeat at Doncaster. Headed on the line on that occasion, it 's a pleasant surprise to see the handicapper not penalising him and the eight-year-old can gain an overdue victory. Keith Dalgleish has his string in good form and Sound Advice has to be respected. The gelding raced over an inadequate trip at Yarmouth and is 2lb lower tonight. Snooky can race with plenty of exuberance and has claims if the rain stays away. Newmarket raider, Elnadwa makes a step up in distance to take on more established campaigners while Robert The Painter and Seattle Drive have both been knocking on the door.
