In a relatively quiet racing day, the race that closes the program at Newcastle, Betway Sprint Handicap, is quite interesting. With at least 5 horses capable of winning this one it is FIRST EXCEL that caught the eye. A previous course winner, he has 30% strike rate at all-weather plus 4 more places in 14 races. He was a good second 5 days ago at Southwell showing good early pace and led at 5-furlong pole before losing the first place at final strides. EJ Walsh has a P/L of 19.00 at all-weather as well and if he manages the shortest distance he clearly enters calculations.
