Racecard | 14:55 Betway Casino Handicap | Newcastle – Sky Sports

Verdict

Dublin Pharaoh landed the odds with both Daawy and Sweet Dime behind when successful over track and trip last month. He can confirm superiority and figure again while Cardano finished runner-up at the same fixture here albeit in better company than this and can also get involved. But it could pay to stick with the progressive MYSEVEN (NAP), who was winning for the third time in only six outings so far when scoring at Kempton last month and a 2lb rise may not be enough to anchor the Crisford filly in this.
