Newcastle 1.50 2 Amazour @ 6/1 / 12 Northgate Lad @ 11/1 - 1/2 point e/w each (Lad/Coral odds to 4th / SkyBet odds to 5th)AMAZOUR ticks too many boxes to ignore here, ran well in defeat last week; nice draw;
nice handicap mark and crucially Course and Distance form on the surface, at 6/1 with odds to 5th looks
something of an each way banker, if there is such a thing, so suggest you BOG the price and get on with
Sky to 5th; if not Ladbrokes or Corals to 4th place. I was also taken by NORTHGATE LAD locally trained
on what could be a huge day here; nice mark; seems to be running in to form and Course form and just
a hunch that they have been canny in protecting his handicap mark for this race as a "plan".
