TWO RUNNERS AT NEWCASTLE ON WEDNESDAY.

With many of the jump meetings falling by the wayside, I can at least write with some confidence that the flat all weather meeting at Newcastle is pretty much certain to go ahead.

We have two live chances providing that Just Jean is in the same mood as she was on her last start 13 days ago. Aiden Brookes employed different tactics by having her right up with the pace from the start, and this seemed to keep the filly interested, and she appeared to give her all right to the line, finishing third at 50/1, and running her best race so far this season. This drop in trip by two and a half furlongs is probably a plus, the race is at 2.0.pm, with Aiden retaining the ride.

It's welcome back to one of last seasons biggest success stories Dragons Will Rise, who hasn't raced for 60 days. He is the winner of three of his last five starts,and was last seen when a shade disappointingly finishing third at Wolverhampton, when probably not getting the run of the race. He will want a fast pace, as he drops back to a mile for the first time since last March, with his regular jockey Robert Havlin retaining the ride, at 3.0.pm.

Good luck to the connections, Mr and Mrs Paul Chapman, and The Golden Cuckoo.
