On a Good Friday feast of All-Weather action, Newsboy gives his ITV4 selections from Newcastle and Lingfield plus tips from Chelmsford – where nap I’m Mable is racing in the 4.30pm
INTERNATIONALANGEL can sprout wings in the Coral All-Weather Fillies’ And Mares’ Championships Conditions Stakes (4.15) as the big-money Finals card most to Newcastle for the first time.
Jane Chapple-Hyam’s mare was a below-par seventh at Wolverhampton last time but had previously racked up a six-timer and Hollie Doyle’s mount has more to offer.
Doyle’s husband Tom Marquand should be on the mark aboard the William Haggas-trained MY OBERON in the All-Weather Mile (2.00).
Trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies is better known for his National Hunt exploits, but EARLOFTHECOTSWOLDS has plenty to recommend him in the Betway All-Weather Marathon (4.15).
Irish challenger HARRY’S BAR used a tongue strap and cheekpieces to good effect at Dundalk 23 days ago and another good account is on the cards in the Betway All-Weather Sprint (2.35).
Hot favourite TYRRHENIAN SEA is expected to deliver in the Betway Easter Classic (4.45), while EL CABALLO looks a worthy market leader for the Coral 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes (3.10).
At Lingfield Park, VASPASIAN looks good in the Coral All-Weather Vase Three-Year-Old Handicap (2.55).
Last-time-out course-and-distance scorer JACK’S POINT is of interest in the Betway All-Weather Vase Sprint Handicap (2.20), and a step back in distance won’t harm the chances of TOTALLY CHARMING in the All-Weather Vase Handicap (4.00).
