1.50 Ascot – ODONNELL’S ORCHARD (1pt win – 13/2 generally)

The Tom Dascombe-trained ODONNELL’S ORCHARD made a pleasing debut when a 33-1 fourth of eight in a 6f Newbury novice in early July and built on that with a 66-1 fourth of nine in Listed company over the same course and distance. He disappointed at Salisbury next time but looks worth another chance now running in restricted novice company for the first time. His trainer has a fine record with experienced runners in restricted novice races, scoring with ten of the 25 qualifiers for a profit of £36.64 to a £1 level stake at SP.

2.45 Newcastle – FLEUR DE MER (1.5pt win – 16/5 Paddy Power + Betfair, 3/1 generally)

FLEUR DE MER caught the eye from off the pace when runner-up to Wadacre Gomez, who was always towards the front end, in a 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford last time and her running style will be more effective at Newcastle this afternoon. Blueflagflyinghigh, the patiently-ridden fourth at Chelmsford, went close on his next outing (beaten by half a length at 5-1) and our old friend Yeoman, seventh in the same contest, has finished second and first in his two subsequent starts. She broke her duck over the 8.6f trip at Wolverhampton on her penultimate start and can take another step forward.
