WITH Richard Fahey firing in winners all over the place it should pay to follow BENDY SPIRIT (1.55) under a 6lb penalty at Newcastle.
The gelding ran his rivals ragged at Lingfield last Thursday over today's seven-furlong trip and looks capable of defying his extra burden.
Dark Regard, a dual Southwell winner, added to his portfolio when scrambling home at Wolverhampton in November, but Kempton scorer Bella Brazil may be the one to follow home Bendy Spirit.
Nicky Henderson doesn't send many up to Catterick but fields CAPTAIN WOODIE (3.45). This will be the lightly-raced eight-year-old's first attempt in handicaps and the dual bumper winner showed he retained ability when chasing home Dan Skelton's useful Emmas Joy at Warwick.
Groveman is down in class after tailing off at Sandown, while trailblazing Musselburgh scorer I'm Too Generous has been hit with a 10lb rise.
