Tuesday’s NAP comes from the all weather which tells you what you need to know about the racing.
However Venetia Williams did the business at Chepstow yesterday as Top And Drop was a tidy 4-1 winner for followers.
CHERRY OAK (Newcastle, 6.15) should benefit from this drop into a 0-60.
She’s gone well the last three times over this course and distance – with form figures of 335 not doing her justice.
Watching her races back it’s clear the stiff finish suits her and with trainer Ben Haslam now in top form she should be the one to beat here.
She’s much less exposed than the majority of her rivals and the handicapper may have just relented enough for connections to have their day in the sun here.
She was drawn out of things last time and today’s draw in the middle of the bunch should play out more smoothly giving Graham Lee the options needed if the Newcastle bias does come to the fore again.
