Newcastle Tips April 22


Newcastle Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Alura


Newcastle Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Prospero

With 12 winners in April at an excellent strike rate of 42%, trainer Nathan Doyle is in strong form and he prepares this lightly raced five-year-old for his second-up assignment on Thursday.

From a wide gate with 60.5kg fresh, the market was against Prospero on return at Port Macquarie, a galloper that was ridden much more conservative than usual due to the barrier, but it mattered not, as he sustained a wide run and pulled away late for a soft victory.

Recording two victories in his first campaign for the new yard including a Provincial scalp at the end of that preparation, the son of Pierro is improving and in a competitive race, is one with at least tactical versatility that has drawn well.


Newcastle Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Adelaide's Light

This colt can consider himself quite unlucky in his first preparation where he found two strong Maiden's straight up before being well fancied to win the Magic Millions Maiden, but was caught three-wide the trip and was tipped out following that effort.

It took a subsequent Group Three winner (and Australian Oaks runner-up) in Duais to knock him off via the 1300m debut at Newcastle last December before contesting a strong city Maiden, where was competitive but did work early on a Soft track.

Despite resuming off just one trial, Adelaide's Light bolted in first-up at Kembla Grange and while it's obviously harder stepping to a Provincial 64, the majority of this field are at their mark whereas he's a three-year-old on an upwards spiral.


Newcastle Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Siesta Key

Following a string of six very competitive performances, Siesta Key brought up a much-deserved victory on December 20 when safely accounting for Take To Heart (won his next start) prior to her January 4 attempt where she was three-wide throughout with 59kg .

Siesta Key was only just denied by a stable mate on that occasion, a three-year-old she was spotting 3kg to and following that, found a strong Benchmark 68 at Wyong, where she was slightly held-up but was at the end of a long preparation irrespective, finishing fourth and was then spelled.

The daughter of So You Think had trialled well twice before a first-up tilt in a Provincial Championships Qualifier, and although she doesn't quite run out a strong 1400m, there were excuses (wide run) but back to six furlongs along with a drop in grade, she's well placed here.

Adelaide's Light (Race 7) will run as our best bet on the April 22 card from Newcastle.

Prospero (Race 5) won somewhat unexpectedly first-up and draws well for a suitable step up in trip.

Siesta Key had excuses fresh but down in grade over a more suitable trip, can figure in the last.
