Newcastle Racing Tips: More success beckons for Tadleel

Timeform’s Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Newcastle on Tuesday.

NAP: Course specialist can strike again

Tadleel – 18:00 Newcastle

Tadleel lost his way somewhat on turf in the summer, but as a result he has dropped a fair way in the weights, and can boast a particular good record at this venue.

He also returned to form over a mile here last time, leaving the impression that he could be ready to strike, having to squeeze through a narrow gap two furlongs out but staying on well enough to think he is back in form. His last two wins have come over course and distance, the latest from a 4 lb higher mark, and he will remain of interest at this venue.


Trainer: Richard Fahey
Jockey: Billy Garritty
Age: 6
Weight: 9st 7lbs
OR: 84

NEXT BEST: Side with the progressive one

Taj Alola – 17:00 Newcastle

Taj Alola shaded favouritism in a weak race when making a winning debut at Catterick in July, knowing his job well and scoring with plenty of authority.

He wasn’t able to dominate under a penalty in a stronger race at Windsor on his next start, but he did improve further to resume winning ways at Thirsk when last seen in August while still not looking the finished article. An opening mark of 81 doesn’t look excessive now he is switched to the all-weather and, with likely more to come, he could prove a tough nut to crack for a yard among the winners.


Trainer: K. R. Burke
Jockey: Clifford Lee
Age: 2
Weight: 9st 7lbs
OR: 81

EACH WAY: Take a Leap of faith

Leap Abroad – 18:30 Newcastle

Leap Abroad remains a maiden, but he has a couple of pieces of form that make him of interest here, particularly his latest start when finishing runner-up at Chelmsford last month.

He very much caught the eye under this rider, and left the impression he would have finished closer still if he didn’t have to angle out for a run around a furlong out. The winner that day has run well in defeat since, and the stiffer finish at this track may suit Leap Abroad better. He remains a well-handicapped horse despite a 2 lb rise.


Trainer: Paul & Oliver Cole
Jockey: Mohammed Lyes Tabti
Age: 2
Weight: 9st 6lbs
OR: 64
