15:00 Oz Legend

Madeeh is likely to bounce back at some point but it may pay to focus on the 3yo contingent in this field. Sayf Al Dawla is unexposed, while a change of scenery could prompt improvement from both Tashkeer and Up The Tempo. Another having his first run for a new stable is OZ LEGEND and he makes most appeal with some of his spring form having a very solid look to it.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

15:30 Mutaraafeq

It’ll be disappointing if MUTARAAFEQ can’t get off the mark, as a reproduction of any of his three runs for Ivan Furtado should suffice. Silver Bubble has a bit to find but looks best placed to take advantage if the selection fails to fire.

16:00 Daniel Deronda

DANIEL DERONDA ran respectably when fourth in a C&D handicap 11 days ago and, with refitted cheekpieces fancied to put an extra edge on him, he could well be the answer in what rates a competitive handicap. Perfect Swiss, who finished 2 places in front of the selection, rates the main threat, ahead of class-dropping Old News and Omany Amber.

16:30 Lucky Lucky Lucky

Build Me Up has more on her plate than when winning at Leicester six weeks ago but she’s still respected on her first run for a new yard. So Smart, Firebomb and Lucky Man can all feature but LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY looks a likely improver now making the switch to nurseries.

17:00 Midgetonamission

Copper Mountain was a big eyecatcher on last week’s nursery debut and she ought to appreciate returning to this trip, but MIDGETONAMISSION’s form has more substance and her latest effort can be marked up. Malorie and, in particular, Catatumbo should be monitored in the betting starting out in handicaps.

Newcastle all weather

17:30 Zenzero (NAP)

Preference is for David O’Meara’s 3yo ZENZERO (nap), who made it 2-3 in blinkers when scoring in good style over C&D last Monday and may well be able to strike again under a penalty. Second choice is Aquamas, who had a near miss at Ayr last time and is a big player if she can repeat that form on her AW debut. Others to consider are Hostelry, who was placed behind the selection last week, and Rocket Rod, who showed signs of a revival with his staying-on third here 18 days ago.

18:00 Champagne Supernova

One Last Hug and Sleight were both placed over 6f last time but they will need another strong pace to aim at here. Ustath could help provide that and he isn’t ruled out back at 6f but CHAMPAGNE SUPANOVA may be the answer. He shaped nicely from a wide draw at Wolverhampton last time and this looks less competitive. Mr Trevor is another to consider.

18:30 Miss Connaisseur

The most interesting of these is MISS CONNAISSEUR, who appears to be getting the hang of things judged on last week’s effort in a C&D novice and improvement may well be on the way now that she ventures down the handicap route. Dylan’s Lad failed to measure up to market expectations here last time, but he is feared nonetheless. Kodi Gold is also shortlisted, along with Absolute Dream.
