6.45 Newcastle: Class 4 Fillies’ Handicap, 6f
A race very much for the taking and favourite Cashla Bay should be very hard to beat from a perfect draw. That is if she can regain form shown previously to a abysmal performance in her last start, when finishing down the field.
However all other three life time starts were quite excellent efforts in the context of the race and how the form has worked out in the long term.
Cashla Bay achieved a time speed rating of 81 on her debut back in October last year, which suggested she is potentially smart, and with natural improvement surely better than her current rating of 80.
A tongue strap is fitted for the first time. That might be the key to unlock improvement. Certainly one thing is for sure: there is no excuse today.
10pts win – Cashla Bay @ 9/4 Bet365
