NAP – EDMOND DANTES @ 5/6 with BetUK – 3.40 Newcastle

Looking to make it back-to-back wins for the first time in his racing career, Edmond Dantes looks like the in form horse here in the fourth race of the afternoon in the north-east.

Winning impressively last time out at Market Rasen, he seemed to win with ease when shaken up and asked for more. Seems to have plenty of stamina which will stand him in good stead. When ridden, he responded well and kept on which makes us think it will take a perfect ride from another horse to beat him.

Thundersockssundae looks to be the closest competitor in the race but trainer Ruth Jefferson will be hopeful of another win for her 6-year-old with Brian Hughes on board.

NEXT BEST – PRIDE OF LECALE @ SP with BetUK – 3.15 Leicester

Only five runners in this race but Pride of Legal looks to be the one to beat here for Fergal O’Brien and the Noel Fehily Racing Syndicate.

Winning at 22/1 in a chase at Ffos Las in January, with a second place finish last time out on this race course, we think Pride of Legal has a great chance today over the 15 furlong distance on the good to soft turf.

Seems to respond well when asked for more, as well as proving to stay on reasonably well, despite these shorter races being more high paced and frantic from the get go. This 11-year-old is also the highest rated horse in the field, matched with a 16% strike rate for the yard in the last two weeks. We think he will go really well.
