Newcastle Tips April 15


Newcastle Best Bet - Race 2 No. 5 Deepwood Vale

After being checked early over 1300m at Scone first-up, the daughter of Redoute's Choice was back to an awkward position off the speed, towards the inside and despite balancing up late then rattling home, Fleet Air Arm had pinched too much of a break.

That winner had bolted in on debut the start prior in very good time for Maiden class, so simply, she may have just run into a handy one and finding a weaker contest second-up over a more suitable 1400m, she proved much too classy for a Benchmark 58 line-up at Tamworth.

Stepping up to Provincial level at Newcastle, Deepwood Vale ran into a winner with a sharper turn-of-foot over seven furlongs but she put a space on Latina Beauty in third, a mare that went back-to-back late last year in stronger races than this.


Newcastle Value Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Lava

An ex-Godolphin galloper who following lengthy lay-off from just two runs for James Cummings, returned in November and is now under the care of Edward Cummings, a small stable that have got this gelding ticking over quite well at present.

Competitive in his first three performances for the new yard, Lava was then sent for a freshen-up and resumed with a much-deserved Maiden victory at Newcastle on February 27, bravely holding off No Question in the run to the line with those two putting more than five lengths on third.

While disappointing in a city attempt, he bounced back on March 30 where although was outsprinted by Ladylovestogamble (placed in a 78 on Wednesday), he finished next to Solar Apex, a colt that placed in town prior to that and defeated Bargain, who caught the eye with a big run for second in the Adrian Knox Stakes.


Newcastle Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Titanium Power

Although Titanium Power is still very much a work in progress, I'd be a little surprised if he wasn't the best horse to come out of this field in time, irrespective of what is delivered on Thursday and it's worth forgiving the fresh effort on a Soft 7 via a tighter Gosford circuit.

The overall time of his debut win last campaign stood up well versus the Class 1 on that November 11 card from Hawkesbury, a race that produced stable mate El Cohete, who won his next start in town and is now a dual city winner.

Despite a betting move not being landed at start two, the son of So You Think still managed to put a decent margin on Amoretti, a galloper that won his next three starts (including two in town) and the bigger expanses at Newcastle along with a firmer track should be more suitable.

Deepwood Vale faces a lot of out of form and inconsistent rivals via Race 2 from Newcastle this Thursday.

Expect Titanium Power (Race 7) to be better suited second-up on a bigger circuit, and on a Good surface.

Lava comes out of a decent form race and is good each-way odds in Race 3.
