Race 1 – Class 2 Handicap (1200m)
Frogmarch only narrowly missed out on recording a hat-trick on March 13 and resumes on Thursday as an excellent winning hope. The horse drops an enormous amount of weight and jumps from gate two. It all bodes well for a strong run on Newcastle.
Race 1 tip: Frogmarch to win at Neds
Race 2 – Maiden Handicap (1200m)
Godolphin runner Evict was poor on debut at Randwick, but this race is a much easier proposition. The Sepoy three-year-old has trialed well leading back into this resumption and we think the gelding will be hard to hold out here.
Race 2 tip: Evict to win ($2.60 at William Hill)
Race 3 – Maiden (1300m)
If connections decide to run Bondi at Newcastle it will be incredibly hard to beat. The horse has placed three of four times and gets a rock bottom weight and a good gate.
Race 3 tip: Bondi to win ($1.80 at Sportsbet)
Race 4 – Maiden Handicap (1400m)
Cummings runner Singa Glory will spear out and attempt to lead this from the front. On both race dates the horse has finished second, narrowly missing out by a nose on debut. This appears within Singa Glory’s grasp.
Race 4 tip: Singa Glory to win ($2.65 at Sportsbet)
