After a cold and chilly start to the week at Warwick and Sedgefield, Newcastle's evening All-weather card takes centre stage on Tuesday.
The feature race is the Betway Conditions Stakes over five furlongs, which acts as a fast-track qualifier for All-Weather Championships. Encore D'Or leads a field of seven and looks favoured by the weights, but Newcastle is very much a track for 'horses for courses'.
Robert Cowell's 7yo will need to respond after a poor effort on his last visit, which opens the door for Paul Mulrennan, who returns from a long injury layoff to partner Suzi's Connoisseur, along with Outrage who scored over course and distance two weeks ago.
Jumping takes place from Kelso and Leicester in the afternoon.
