Newcastle each-way tips (1930): Sugar Hill Babe and Henery Hawk can land a blow at decent odds

There’s plenty in with a shout of landing this wide-open five-furlong dash, and our partners at Tipstrr have run their numbers to help narrow the field down a little for us.

Beylerbeyi and Gustav Graves are currently scrapping for the favourite tag, with the former having had a couple of runner-up near misses at Wolverhampton and this course recently, while the latter posted a career-best success at Wolverhampton just four days ago.

However, the quick turnaround, five extra pounds and the fact that most of Gustav Graves' best work has been at the Black Country track (third of eight on his only run here in January) suggests better value might be found beyond the top two.

Indeed with four places up for grabs with most bookies and double-digit odds available on eight of the 12 runners, there are plenty of nicely-priced contenders capable of making the frame.

Our first nod goes to Sugar Hill Babe, whom we backed over this course and distance three weeks ago, and she duly obliged by winning with more than a length in hand to land us a very appetising 18/1 winner.

Lisa Williamson’s four-year-old filly has paid a six-pound price for that success, but with claiming jockey Alex Jary eating into five pounds of that, we’re happy to keep faith with her, albeit from a less favourable outside draw this time.

Suggested bet: Sugar Hill Babe each-way in the 19:30 at Newcastle


Of the other relative outsiders, proven course-distance winners Henery Hawk and Herakles finished down the field in a higher-graded 0-85 handicap over this very trip last time out 20 days ago, but all of their rivals were rated far higher than they face in this 0-72 affair, so both can be expected to feature much more prominently again here.

Of the two, we are marginally plumping for the former, with Tommie Jakes bringing his five-pound claim back to Henery Hawk’s plate after missing that last-time-out setback.

Prior to that, Jakes had piloted Linda Peratt’s five-year-old to back-to-back course-distance wins in the space of 13 days in January and February, the most recent of which saw him hold off 10 capable 0-70 sprinters to ease home at tasty odds of 9/1. 

Next best bet: Henery Hawk each-way in the 19:30 at Newcastle
