17:25 Newcastle

Although there’s plenty of people bigging up the chances of the Keith Dalglish trained Tefnut but despite his obvious promise I’m not that sold on a maiden who’s tackling some experienced handicappers. It wouldn’t be the biggest shock if he were to claim success but equally I’m happy to take him on.

The biggest danger to my selection is a horse who returns to the all-weather after a mixed turf season. Vive La Difference is now on his last winning all-weather mark, produced a solid performance last time and looks primed for a big run and shouldn’t be far away.

The horse that just edges it however is a five year old who hails from the Roger Fell stable and has a great record here at Newcastle. In just five course and distance starts AL OZZDI has claimed one win and two placed efforts. He’s only one pound higher than his rating when successful here and with Ben Curtis booked he should be in the mix.
