Newcastle Racing Tips For March 6 2020

The Group Three Newcastle Newmarket Handicap headlines the provincial NSW meeting on Friday.

Rain is predicted on the day for what currently a Good 4 surface and the rail is out in the 2m position from the 1000m to the 400m but true for the remainder.

Newcastle Best Bet

Race 6 No. 13 Reaching

Whilst here she's perhaps not the strong betting proposition she was at Randwick Kensington yesterday prior to her scratching, we have to respect the stable eyeing off the easier assignment.

By the Japanese champion Deep Impact and out of the four time group one winning mare Alinghi, there's always going to be attention and expectation with this filly who's well suited with the extra furlong here.

With easily the fastest last 600m of that February 19 attempt (34.22) after getting back and coming from the rear, it was a definite flashing light run.

Drawn out but Kerrin McEvoy was likely heading back irrespective on Reaching who will look to round them up late as the best bet at Newcastle this Friday.

Newcastle Next Best Bet

Race 8 No. 5 Piping Roller

Coming back to a provincial Benchmark 64, this daughter of Your Song looks about the best placed runner on this whole Newcastle program.

Prepared by the Mitch Newman yard at Hawkesbury, she's always shown ability which was best displayed in her first racing campaign with a big maiden win at Canberra.

She was heavily respected following that when sent out as favourite behind Bandersnatch (since won twice in town) but was at the end of her preparation then.

The fresh performance in stronger company on February 19 should've brought Piping Roller on further and with Hugh Bowman now in the saddle, she's the one to beat in the last.

Newcastle Value Bet

Race 7 No. 8 Dealmaker

It's a tough Newcastle Newmarket to find an early edge in, however this Chris Waller-trained gelding should be respected first-up.

He hasn't been popular with the punters to date which is evident in his low winning strike rate but has been rolled at much shorter quotes than he finds himself here and does come to hand early in his work.

The form around his placed efforts last time in still reads well and in a leader dominated affair, did get home strongly for third fresh in that preparation.

Down on the minimum and from a low draw, Dealmaker does make some value appeal on an each way basis.
