Newcastle: Forever's Lady
Finished a good fourth on return from a year break and would have been even closer granted a clear run. Handles course and distance and every chance she comes on for the run.
Forever’s Lady is one of the least exposed runners in the 3.25 Newcastle and I was impressed by her return from almost a year layoff. Slowly into stride she was still travelling strongly when the race got serious, unfortunately she found her path blocked and she never got a run.
She was only beaten 5.25 lengths but granted a clear run she would have gone close. The three that finished ahead of her at Newcastle have run well since and the time of the race was fair, suggesting the form is solid.
Geoff Oldroyd has given her time to get over an possible ‘bounce’ from that effort and there are no superstars in the field
