NEW SOCIETY (4.40) couldn’t quite match strides with course specialist India at Catterick but he is a knocking each-way bet if all 16 runners stand their ground at Nottingham.
James Bethell’s gelding was in great form earlier in the season and this is a slightly lesser contest.
GRAVINA (4.10) beat Double Reflection over today’s 1m 2f trip at Newmarket and may have found 12 furlongs stretching her stamina when third to Luca Cumani’s Floria Tosca at Leicester last time.
Lyrica’s Lion, a dual winner on fast ground in midsummer, rates a threat under Silvestre De Sousa.
At Newcastle, AL KOUT (5.30) is worth an interest in the opening 2m handicap. Heather Majn’s gelding chased home Belisa over 1m 4f here in June and seemed to stay two miles well enough when a running-on third to Gang Warfare at Chepstow.
