13:00 Paddy Elliott

This looks competitive with several handicappers of interest on show. Thomas Lanfiere is on a roll and needs serious consideration, while Bawaader, Nibras Shadow, Van Dijk and the unexposed Hildenley all come into the reckoning.

PADDY ELLIOTT may still be a maiden ,but he surely has races in him off this sort of mark and he is taken to bounce back from a disappointing effort last month.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

13:35 Rich King

Liamarty Dreams sets the standard, and this trip should suit him but there are some interesting newcomers. Cowboy is high on the list, but RICH KING looks the part on paper and represents a yard that is flying and has had three two-year-old winners already this year.

14:10 Freddy Robinson

Kuwait Warrior and Teddy’s Profit are newcomers of note and need a market check, but Tricky Business and FREDDY ROBINSON have both displayed promise and look ready for a seventh furlong. The latter is marginally preferred after a good effort at Haydock eight days ago.

14:45 Miss Nay Never

Astrozone has a fine record on the all-weather and she should be bang there after a promising return to action last month. Soapys Sister continues on the upgrade, but topweight MISS NAY NEVER (NAP) could be the answer. A course and distance winner last month, she ran a cracker against male opponents at Haydock last time and still looks to be improving.

15:20 Seasett

Newmarket raiders Third Kingdom and My Swallow both have the potential to do better, but there are interesting opponents. Al Erayg and Miami Joy should appreciate the return to all-weather, but SEASETT shouldn’t be judged too harshly on his Royal Ascot defeat, and he had been progressing well prior to that.

15:55 Gift Of Raaj

Plenty have possibilities, but the vote goes to Roger Fell’s GIFT OF RAAJ, who stayed on strongly to go close over 1m 6f at Redcar last Sunday and is on the same mark on his step up to this trip. Recent Musselburgh winner Tomorrow’s Angel is feared most, though Wynford was successful over hurdles last time and is respected back on the Flat.

Pound Off You is another key player after her front-running second at Wetherby last time, while others to consider are Spycracker and Robeam.

16:30 Second Slip

The St Leger entry Moshaawer remains open to further improvement and has to be worthy of respect on handicap debut, but SECOND SLIP has really taken to this place as he showed when slamming Hasty Sailor over course and distance last month. He’s 8lbs worse off with the runner-up but can follow up, with his clear liking for these conditions being such an asset.

17:05 Onesmoothoperator

Jebel Dukhan can carry his head high and has been overhauled in the closing stages in his last two runs, but he raised his form to a new level with his clear second at Yarmouth and is only 2lbs higher here. He’s respected along with Southwell maiden winner Aradous, who is open to more progress upped to 1m 2f on his handicap debut.

However, the vote goes to another unexposed three-year-old in ONESMOOTHOPERATOR, who was a good third under a penalty behind two very useful rivals in a course and distance novice in May.

Newcastle tips summary:

13:00 Paddy Elliott
13:35 Rich King
14:10 Freddy Robinson
14:45 Miss Nay Never
15:20 Seasett
