1.50 Newcastle: Staxton (e/w) – WON 15/2

Having shown himself to be a very high class consistent sprinter last season, things haven’t quite gone his way this year as yet, but he’s acquitted himself well on ground generally faster than ideal, and as a result has dropped a little in the weights. A fine 4th in the race last year as a 3yo off a mark of 100, he’s 5lbs lower this year and with that being his only run on an artificial surface, he clearly handled it well. He did show a return to form was on the horizon last time and a big run can be expected.
