Newcastle: Good Earth
On the upgrade since moving to Michael Herrington and mark of 73 still underrates his ability after he clocked an adjusted speed figure of 77 last time out.
There are likely to be plenty of winning favourites on the card at Newcastle today but the best of them is Good Earth. The 5-year-old will need a career best to win a class 4 handicap but this isn’t the deepest of races and he’s on the upgrade since moving to Michael Herrington.
He was an easy winner over course and distance, earning an impressive sectional adjusted speed rating of 77. That suggests an official handicap mark of 73 still underrates his ability.
