Newcastle: Lomu

Been running well in a higher grade and speed figures suggest he can take a class 4 handicap. Strike rate of 6-28 impressive for a sprinter and can edge course specialist Outrage.

Outrage has a terrific record at Newcastle, especially in this grade but i’m reluctantly passing on him to play Lomu instead. The 6-year-old has been running better in a higher grade, allied with better speed figures he appears the horse with a higher ceiling.

I haven’t enough evidence to conclude whether he handles the track or not but he is a regular winner on the all-weather.

*Lomu returned at 5/2
