Newcastle Tip: Atletico
Unexposed and 2/2 on the all-weather. Course and distance winner last time out and fastest closer by 0.51s.
Atletico is the lowest rated horse in the 5.10 Newcastle and therefore the worst off at the weights but his profile makes him worth the risk.
Currently 2/2 on the all-weather he has the scope to become a 100+ rated sprinter and that potential puts him in the mix for this race. A course and distance winner last time out, he was the fastest closer by 0.51s and can be rated better than the 1.25 length winning margin.
Very lightly raced for his age, he’s probably not reached his peak and is a fascinating contender in a race where the principles all have question marks.
