Timeform pick out their three best bets from Newcastle on Friday…
“…his latest second over C&D appeals as solid form for the level…”
Timeform on Equiano Springs
Joint top-weight QUICKSILVER makes the trip up from Newmarket to contest an incredibly weak sprint handicap and she at least has a couple of solid pieces of form to her name, so this unexposed sort gets the vote to come out on top. Sittin Handy could prove the pick of the handicap debutants and Deconso, the only winner in the field, is also worth a mention.
Another joint top-weight, the front-runner EQUIANO SPRINGS is probably high enough in the weights but his latest second over C&D appeals as solid form for the level and he gets the tentative vote in a tight handicap. Black Salt and Treacherous are others capable of having a say.
The five-year-old mare MAGICAL MOLLY JOE was a good winner at Wolverhampton on her penultimate start and had little go right back at that venue last month (saddle slipped before halfway). Clear on weight-adjusted Timeform ratings, she’s fancied to bounce back, admittedly in a trappy affair. False Id and Great Colaci are next best, whilst market support for The McGregornator would need to be viewed positively.
