There’s plenty of action to look forward to on Tuesday! We have four meetings in store, with jump’s action from Fairyhouse and Wetherby. If you’re a flat fan, then Lingfield and Newcastle will keep you entertained.
We’ve taken a look through the stats and found one jockey who excels at Newcastle. He’s got both a fantastic strike-rate and profit margin at the venue, and you can find all the details below!
Tom Marquand‘s meteoric rise in the last few years has been a joy to watch. Enjoying his first Classic in the form of the St Leger last year, he’s now one of the top jockeys in the UK & Ireland. One venue that the rising star has enjoyed success at is Newcastle.
With a 20% career strike-rate at the venue, it’s rare that he leaves the Northern venue without some sort of success. That equates to a massive £46.20 profit to level stakes, so his rides aren’t to be missed. He has four chances at the venue on Tuesday and you can find our thoughts below!
3.25 Newcastle – Minister
Has run just three times so far, well-held in France before joining Kevin Philippart de Foy. He’s run a pair of fair races for his new connections, with his best effort thus far coming when fourth at Kempton.
He should find life much easier in handicaps and the yard is flying, with two winners from their last three runners. This opening mark looks more than fair and his breeding suggests the best is yet to come.
4.00 Newcastle – Herculean
The least likely of Marquand’s ride on paper, having just his third start for Stuart Williams. He failed to improve for Roger Charlton and although he was a great third on debut for Williams back in July, he’s been absent since a poor run at Ascot in October.
He was well-held on his sole All-Weather run in the past, but he’s on a good mark and perhaps has an each-way chance if they go a strong gallop throughout, as he has an abundance of stamina.
5.00 Newcastle – Venturous
Eight-year-old who is performing at his very peak, having won three of his last four starts. Well on top when scoring at Wolverhampton last time and he’s a dual course and distance winner.
A four-pound rise puts him on a career-high mark, but he’s thriving at present and Marquand is unbeaten on the horse, having ridden him for aforementioned course success. Given his recent exploits, he demands plenty of respect.
5.30 Newcastle – Ummalnar
Lightly-raced six-year-old with just eight runs under her belt, winning four of those starts. She returned to winning ways on her most recent start, winning a Listed race at Dundalk in impressive fashion.
She’s thoroughly unexposed for top connections and with the potential of more to offer, she’s one to take very seriously. That being said, she does take on our NAP of the Day.
