Forecast

Dubawi Fifty (5/6), American Gigolo (5/2), Continuum (11/2), Stargazer (16/1), Swashbuckle (25/1), Suegioo (28/1)

Verdict

AMERICAN GIGOLO seeks an AW hat-trick following victories at Lingfield and Kempton and provides his trainer Harry Fry with a first ever runner on Tapeta at Newcastle. Whilst he steps up in trip to 2m for the first time, that's not a bother given his strong level of ability over hurdles, and an opening handicap mark of 88 looks relatively fair. Dubawi Fifty is a standing dish at his local track, and improving quickly, he'll not go down without a fight, but the concession of 8lb to an in-form rival might just be asking a little too much.
  1. American Gigolo
  2. Dubawi Fifty
  3. Swashbuckle
