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 this afternoon.

The horse in question today is the Michael Appleby trained Intervention who heads into this event looking to get back to winning ways and the handicapper has given him a big chance to do so.

The five year old has been in some smart form at the start of 2022, winning well at Wolves over 7f and and then narrowly beat last time out at Lingfield over the same trip.

Intervention heads into the meeting running off the same mark of 54 which he has done for his last two races and with him supposed to go up 3lb for his next race he is effectively well in for this event.
