Trueshan the 4/1 FAV in Northumberland Plate Racing odds

Will TRUESHAN deliver the odds in the Northumberland Plate on Saturday at Newcastle? He is the current 4/1 favourite* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

There was a solid reappearance from him 51 days ago, as he went out at Chester. That was in Ormonde and Trushan took a second place there.

Last October he signed off the season with such a brilliant run to get the Long Distance Cup at Ascot and he should be better for this recent reappearance.

The one question mark is that concedes weight to the rest of the field at Newcastle. Will that put a dampener on his chances?

Trueshan does look to be going back in action on a tough mark, which means that the 5-year-old is going to have to produce a new best.

Dubious Affair


Dubious Affair the way to go?

There is some appeal for DUBIOUS AFFAIR in Northumberland Plate racing odds at 5/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

She is the only mare in the field and she does have a 3lb allowance. There was a tremendous season of progress for Dubious Affair in 2020.

There were three handicap wins in total for her and she almost kicked off this new campaign with another one.

Dubious Affair was last seen at Royal Ascot 11 days ago. She was beaten by a head after having had to scrap her way through some serious traffic to get in the mix.

That was on a shorter trip, so the step up in distance is probably going to help her out further and Dubious Affair looks to have plenty more in hand.

She had GALATA BRIDGE behind in the Copper Horse Stakes effort.

Galata Bridge to defy long odds?

There is a quote of 14/1 on the win for GALATA BRIDGE in Northumberland Plate racing odds* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

He is a good front runner and will get his head down and scrap it out. Galata Bridge was sixth at Royal Ascot 11 days ago.

A positive, aggressive run from him could pay off on the Tapeta on Saturday. It has been three wins from three on the surface, so he’s happy here.

Galata Bridge was thriving last season and can run off a 3lb lower mark for this contest. He’s a course winner as well and coming up on the trip, there are interesting place claims from him.

Can Australia get in the picture?

We don’t think that AUSTRALIS is no forlorn hope in this contest. He has good experience of the Northumberland Plate.

Australis was second in last year’s renewal of this race and is far more at home on the all-weather than on the turf.

That was proven on his last couple of efforts, which were on the turf and he never got himself in the frame.

There is a quote of 9/1 on Australis in horse racing betting* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

Roger Varian’s 5 year old may need a career-best and one or two to falter. But he has proven form here at Newcastle that piques interest.

Just Hubert an outsider with a shot?

Along with AUSTRALIS, there is good outsider interest in JUST HUBERT who is a 20/1 shot* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

He was last seen at Royal Ascot on a 2m 4f trip and that was asking a lot of him on the day. Just Hubert finished 11th. But he should be better for the experience.

He has won five-time between 1m 2f to 2m 5f and we think that the conditions at Royal Ascot were just far too quick for him. This switch to all-weather could be a great move.

Others to note

MILDENBERGER appeared with four stablemates under Mark Johnston and opened the season with a reappearance win at Wolverhampton.

He returned from a Saudi Arabia handicap 126 days ago. There’s no reason why he can’t show.

THEMAXWECAN can be a frustrating one to follow. He was brilliant on a reappearance score at Musselburgh.

But his recent run in a Royal Ascot handicap was a bit of a shocker. He takes on the Tapeta for the first time.

ALRIGHT SUNSHINE is going to be fine for this trip. He took full advantage of a reduced mark to score at Hamilton 43 days ago. He comes up 2lb though and this is a much stronger race.

GRANDMASTER FLASH couldn’t complete a hattrick last time. He went well for a long way before sliding back 3f out. But the form was still there and is an interesting player on a 3f drop in distance.

Predictions & Tips for Northumberland Plate Racing Odds Racing Odds

This is a great fixture and a great line up for this year’s renewal of the Northumberland Plate.

We are going with the only mare in the field, DUBIOUS AFFAIR as our horse racing tip at 5/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

There was a lot to like from her form on her reappearance and would likely have scored there at Royal Ascot were it not for traffic. She’s at the same mark and so has big claims.

GALATA BRIDGE piques a lot of interest because he has strong form on the Tapeta, while others are making their bow on the surface.

His usual bold approach can help him feature from 14/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).

The final selection for the shortlist is going to be TRUESHAN. We do expect him to in the frame.

But as he is giving weight to everyone here, that’s just a little bit of a question mark over the 4/1 favourite* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on June 25th, 2021 at Coral).
