16:05 Newcastle

If you’re one for statistics you’ll struggle to see past Sunset Flash in the sixth race on the card at Newcastle. Trainer David Lanigan has a 100% strike rate with runners here at the venue this year and in-form jockey James Doyle also has a 100% strike rate when teaming up with the Newmarket trainer in 2018. An encouraging 4th placed effort on the horses debut is something the young filly can certainly improve upon. Not given the best of rides last time when having too much to do she still showed glimpses of promise none the less. A drop down to seven furlongs seems a positive step and being given a decent draw in stall 4 is also advantageous. Although there’s an obvious threat in the top weight Ticklish who has already claimed a racecourse victory the numbers point towards Lanigan’s charge who seems set to go much better this time around.
