Verdict

Jo Foster's Seapoint has acquitted herself well on all four previous visits to Newcastle (4221) breaking her duck at the 33rd attempt on her most recent start. Undoubtedly she has plenty in her favour here under similarly testing conditions (drops back slightly in trip) with the booking of the experienced 3lb claimer Becky Smith surely beneficial to her chances. However, the preferred option is the Phil Kirby-trained EPSOM DES MOTTES. He hacked up at Ayr in January, and was only undone by a lack of stamina when bidding for a swift double at Lingfield (2m7f) the following week. On his favoured heavy ground, a subsequent 12lb weights rise isn't viewed as a major concern.
  1. Epsom Des Mottes
  2. Seapoint
  3. See Forever
