Newcastle Tips – March 31
Race 3 – 1:15PM HUNGERFORD HILL MAIDEN PLATE (1875 METRES)
Firstly, trainer Joe Pride said he has a cracking chance at Newcastle on Tuesday, and he’s “very confident RED HOT CHILLYPINS will win.” The blinkers go back on the daughter of Rock ‘N’ Pop at her fourth run this campaign as she gets out to a suitable trip. She’s worked home strongly at her past two starts over a mile and, finishing runner-up in both, and with peak fitness on her side and blinkers back on, she looks hard to beat.
Race 5 – 2:25PM BELLA GROUP SERVICES BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1875 METRES)
LOVES TO ROCK looks very well placed here and her last start BM figure of 4.2 lengths quicker than standard is 7.9 lengths better than the next best last start effort of any other runner. The daughter of Road To Rock broke her maiden over 2000m last campaign and put in her best performances over 2200m and 2100m when deeper into her preparation. This time in she led throughout to win over 1600m third-up and then looked a bit one-paced last start when finishing 4th at Randwick on the Kensington track. The step up in trip suits fifth-up, and the drop in class should allow her to settle forward before building on the bend and finishing off strong.
