Age: 6
Weight: 11-2
OR: 92
Days: 2

On Thursday we have picked out one horse that is well in with the handicapper and with that in mind could run a big race at Newcastle over the jumps this afternoon.

The six year old LONE STAR has been given a big chance by the handicapper to land back to back wins racing off the same winning mark as last time out.

The Philip Kirby trained mare got back to winning ways at Ayr on Tuesday and being turned out two days later looking to avoid a penalty should see her go close.

She is 5lb well in for her run this afternoon, with effectively she should be running off 97 and not a mark of 92.
