The $150,000 Provincial-Midway Championships Wildcard (1400m) headlines a bumper eight-race program at Newcastle on Wednesday afternoon, offering one last chance to secure entry into the final at Randwick on April 13. The rail moves out +6m for the entire circuit, and with only minor showers predicted in the lead-up, the current Good 4 rating is expected to hold up. The opening race is scheduled to get underway at 1:45pm local time.

Provincial-Midway Championships Wildcard: Ang Pow

Ang Pow is ready to peak in his first look at 1400m this campaign and offers a great each-way price with online bookmakers. The son of Flying Artie was impressive last time out when chasing home Shadows Of Love at Gosford on March 16, and he should’ve finished much closer than 1.8-length margin may suggest. He will need to make plenty of inroads from barrier 13, but with his stunning turn of foot over this trip, Ang Pow should be right in this.

Best Bet at Newcastle: Duke Of Bronte

Duke Of Bronte resumes after 151 days off the scene and should be ultra-competitive in this maiden contest. He led all the way in both of his recent barrier trials, the latest being a 1.4-length romp at Warwick Farm on March 26. The 4kg claim of apprentice jockey Leeshelle Small only benefits this son of Capitalist, and with barrier one to help him on his way, watch for Duke Of Bronte to make every post a winner.

Next Best at Newcastle: Rantan

Rantan couldn’t have been more impressive when bounding away from her rivals in a Randwick jump-out on March 22, showing she could have serious ability. She rounded up her opposition when barely asked for an effort and seemed to have plenty in hand through the wire. If Ron Quinton’s debutant can bring her trial form to race-day conditions, she must be considered the one to beat.
