Two Runners at Newcastle Today
Sep 04, 2018
Finally we see a rain effected track with Newcastle today a soft 7 after a dumping of 57mls over the last 24 hours.
First up in race 3 we see the consistent Holy Reign line up in the 1600m maiden with Tim Clark aboard. The son of Manhattan Rain has finished 2nd in two recent starts and is overdue to break through for his maiden win. Once again he has drawn the outside barrier but with a positive jump should be able to settle close to the pace and be most competitive at the business end!
Spring Charlie should appreciate the step up to 1400m and the bigger track, when he competes in the Class 2 apprentice only race with Sam Weatherley aboard. The son of Myboycharlie was doing his best work late when charging home over 1200m last start to finish 4th beaten half a length.
