Make Sure You Go And Back This One

5th February 2019, 10:18 by Gerard Lees

Five-Year-Old Ready To Gain First Win

The Jim Goldie trained HUGOIGO will almost certainly jump a hurdle at some stage, being a son of top National Hunt sire Sulamani but can get off the mark with a first career win in the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap at Newcastle today. He has improved lately with a third to Belabour in a poor race here in January and then a much better runner-up spot to Splash Of Verve a week later. The fifth in that race, Sweetest Smile, has bolted up since from Hediddodinthe at Wolverhampton and the winner, Splash Of Verve ran yesterday and was beaten in a four-way photo, but would surely have won well with a better run. TETRADRACHM is best on ratings overall and is sure to come in for plenty of support following his recent wide-margin victory at Wolverhampton but gets a few BTO negatives whereas Hugoigo is the recipient of six positives, including a trainer/jockey (Jamie Gormley) win return at the course that is 33% better than expected. FLOOD DEFENCE is also consistent and will go well but is lacking finishing toe these days, so at an easily-found 15/2 it has to be a Go on Hugo.
