3.55pm Newcastle Tips & Betting Preview 24/02/2018

SMART TALK was a very smart novice hurdler, only sent off 6/1 at the Cheltenham Festival. She returned from a long break last time when unable to get into the contest. If that has blown away the cobwebs, she should be a big player. Cool Mix has an ungainly head carriage but it hasn’t stopped him progressing. This mark looks workable on his run over this course and distance in a novice. Reverant Cust stays well and this should be run at a decent enough gallop to bring him into play late on.
