Newcastle Newmarket Handicap

Gareth Phillips brings us today’s bet of the day from Newcastle.

5:50pm AEDT
Newcastle Race 8 

#4 The Crimson Idol $9.50 with TopSport

She’s been in work all season (13th-up today), but her last two runs are good. Two back she won a country race here which the form from has proven VERY strong, providing 6 next start winners (and solid ratings improvers), and then last start she was a victim of tempo yet still hit the line well with EIGER (main player in Champs Heat on Sunday) to be beaten a small margin (0.4 lengths). Back again, to 1200m seems a tad “odd” but I have this mapping as a fast run race so I am taking the odds to her being able to swamp them late.
