Trainer James Bethell shows a profit at the course and runs this potentially improving 3 year old. The only question is if he will stay 8f.
I will back him if there’s money for it i.e if less than 6.0 on Betfair
Marco Botti is a good trainer and doesn’t send many up to Newcastle. Malotru is clearly the class horse in the race and has put up some impressive speed figures in past runs. We also know that he acts on the surface which is a big plus!
17:40N Nataleena (NAP)
This is a low grade handicap and I really like the chances of this course specialist Nataleena. Jockey knows her well and there isn’t much competition .
Sporting Life says:
‘C&D winner last October, when 9lb lower and repeated that in January, when just 3lb lower. Held her form in two further runs here. Needs to eek out a bit more, but should again be a contender.’
I will back her if below <6.00 on Betfair.
