The Geordies are all over the sports media at the minute with the Saudi takeover of Newcastle United FC. This Geordie can add to the column inches with a tidy each-way win.
2.10 Chepstow - Geordie Des Champs
Rebecca Curtis' Geordie Des Champs is still going strong at 10 and beat a horse half his age last time out over hurdles at Ffos Las.
The J.P McManus gelding won at Ffos Las on his penultimate start too, seeing off Jonjo O'Neill's pesky six year-old Morning Spirit by a neck over three miles.
The Welsh Grand National winning Adam Wedge was the jockey for both victories and he can switch Geordie Des Champs to fences with aplomb over the shorter two mile, seven and a half furlong trip.
The two tune-ups at Ffos Las will prove crucial in getting the old legs going in this veteran jumpers' handicap at a nice each-way price.
It's not quite black and white but this Geordie can outrun his odds in the green and gold.
