Wednesday's Thoughts

2:20 Newcastle

Selections in handicaps are infrequent at HCE but Sky Falcon comes from a strong maiden at Leicester and looks to be on a fair mark to run a big race. A good each way chance if price allows. Be interesting to see how Water Ice goes after an impressive win last time.

1st 2/1

2:50 Newcastle

A very restricted auction race. Malgoof ran well last time at Catterick. And although that race is difficult to assess, Smart's two-year-old should run well.

1st 11/4

6:20 Yarmouth

Titus Two ran a much-improved race last time when pressing Bloodsweatandtears all the way to the line. It is questionable whether this chestnut colt will run a similarly impressive race today - if he does he will take all the beating. In an open race it might pay to go for Ya Hafed as an each way alternative at a price. This son of Haafhd is a bit of a plodder but shouldn't be far away.

4th 10/1
