TWO RUNNERS AT NEWCASTLE ON TUESDAY, BOTH MAKING THEIR ALL WEATHER DEBUTS.
We send two runners to Newcastle on Tuesday for their twilight meeting, where Indian Vision, and Irv both make their All Weather debuts.
Indian Vision is first up in the extended two miles 0-65 handicap at 4.12.pm, with Paul Mulrennan riding him for the first time. Indian Vision was last seen six weeks ago at Ripon when running no sort of race, trailing in last of the eight, with jockey Graham Lee reporting that he ran flat. Prior to that he had made a highly satisfactory return at Musselburgh after being away from the track for 13 months. He won twice on good to firm, both at Redcar back in 2018, and is 3lb above his last winning mark of 56, but he has also finished second, beaten a neck off 61, in July 2018.
Irv exceeded all expectations last season when winning twice at York, on both occasions in Class 3 company.Due to racing being delayed, he didn't make his return until Thirsk in June, when running right up to his best, when a staying on second.Since then he has been to York three times, twice in Class 2 company, when not disgracing himself, and also a Class 3, when having little chance from stall 20. His latest run was at Pontefract last month, when once again he was unlucky with the draw, but he was staying on towards the finish. Irv is now down to a very attractive mark of 75, which is 3lb lower than his last win at York. The race is at 6.45.pm, over a mile, and Billy Garritty retains the ride.
Good luck to the connections, The Futurists, and Irvine Lynch.
