The recent rain continues to effect the going, with the ground at Newcastle on Thursday currently being considered as heavy, soft in places.

Great Ballinboris hasn't been seen for very nearly a year, in which time he has undergone wind surgery. He is a seven year old who has only run on four occasions to date, hinting there is something to work with when finishing fourth on his debut in a bumper, and also when finishing a respectable sixth on the second of his three starts over hurdles. He makes his chase debut from a mark of 94 at, in the 0-100 novices handicap chase, over two miles and seven furlongs, with the champion jockey Brian Hughes on board for the first time.

Lincoln Burrows was a decisive winner at this track over two miles back in April, from a 3lb lower mark than now. He reappeared over fences at Carlisle last month, where after making a mistake at the fourth, he was pulled up before the sixth. Her returned to hurdles at Kelso 12 days ago, and with that run under his belt, he will now strip fitter. Lincoln Burrows who will appreciate the heavy ground, runs at, in the 0-110 handicap hurdle, over the extended two miles, with Sean Quinlan riding him for the first time.
