We have two declared for Newcastle on Thursday on the Tapeta surface, which is currently riding standard to slow.
Mayjority made his stable debut at Newcastle 27 days ago, when under a considerate ride he made some pleasing late headway to finish third in novice company. The handicapper has raised him 3lb for that effort, which looks fair, and if he can build on that, his mark of 55 looks generous. Mayjority runs at 4.40.pm, in the 0-55 handicap, over a mile, with Jonny Peate retaining the ride.
Dragons Will Rise who is a four time course winner, returned from 19 months off the track over this course and distance 27 days ago, when weakening from over one out, which of course after such a long time away he was entitled to. Whether Dragons Will Rise is still the classy performer he once was remains to be seen, as the handicapper relents, and he is now 3lb below his last winning mark. Dragons Will Rise goes to post for the 5.10.pm, in the 0-75 handicap, over one mile, with Aiden Brookes booked to ride.
