6.15pm Newcastle Tips & Betting Preview 31/01/2018

BIG LACHIE will appreciate the strong pace to chase over five furlongs here, having been placed over course and distance from this mark in November. He stays six furlongs on a sharper track so he should stay on strongly to claim the cash. Oriental Lilly produced a career best last time out over this course and distance. She needs a little more but that should be forthcoming, she looks the biggest danger. Foxy Boy is yet to reproduce his turf form on synthetics but he has only had three bites of the cherry so shouldn’t be completely disregarded, having won from a higher mark on grass in 2017.
