Newcastle Friday Night

We have two runners at Newcastle on Friday night, Graham Lee takes both rides.

There is a maximum field of fourteen in the over one mile under the floodlights, which will be contested by our four year old Dragons Will Rise.He was last seen making his debut over hurdles in November of last year at Catterick where we knew because of his breeding, stamina could always be an issue, and so it proved. He may have another go over the jumps on better ground in due course, in the meantime he makes his all weather debut off his lowest mark to date of 48. His best two runs to date were at Catterick as a two year old when finishing forth of twelve in a novice auction, and as a three year old last May at Wetherby when a four length sixth of thirteen, on both occasions being partnered by Michael Stainton.

Our other runner is The Rat Pack's Crash Helmet who makes his fourth appearance at Newcastle in the last six weeks. He is now exceptionally well handicapped having been dropped a further four pounds to 47, he raced off 69 in his heyday. If he can produce any of that old form he will surely be back in the winners enclosure sooner rather than later.

Good luck to all the connections.

Cornerstone lad, who will run in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham in 12 days time.
