Verdict

A further 6lb rise may well anchor Ebony Roc having scored by only a nose at Kempton last month. Perfect Calm improved for the step up to today's trip at Newcastle and should be thereabouts though both Jacobella and Chocolate Block are less consistent and harder to fancy. Strategic Strike will need to improve on his earlier modest efforts over 1m4f, but MAGIKA gets the trip well enough and it could be her turn today with a repeat of her third at Newmarket back in June. Landau looks best of the rest dropping down a grade.
