THERE’S four meetings on Thursday and Alan has bets from Wolverhampton nd Newcastle.
FIRST OF NEVER has enjoyed a new lease of life at 13 years of age and the old boy is worth an interest at Newcastle.
He edged out Lostock Hall at Wetherby in mid-February and is weighted to confirm the places. First Of Never was in the process of following up that victory with another big run at Doncaster until falling three out.
EL HOMBRE scored over six furlongs at Wolverhampton before Christmas and he looks sure to go close under Joe Fanning back over course and distance.
Keith Dalgleish has hit a bit of form and El Hombre’s Glasgow-based owner had a nice winner at Kempton last week with Soldier’s Minute, again ridden by Fanning.
El Hombre was drawn wide when a fine fourth to Desert Doctor in a hot event here last time but is nicely berthed in stall three.
