We’ve listed two tips below for the Friday evening action at Newcastle.

4:35pm Newcastle - Percy Willis

Percy Willis hasn’t run on the flat since February, but he is a course and distance winner who was successful here back in January 2022, winning off a mark of 67.

He tops the weights in this contest from a mark of 70, and if he’s ready to go after his break, he should be competitive in a wide-open-looking race.

5:45pm Newcastle - Colourful Dream

Colourful Dream has switched from Charlie Appleby to Archie Watson and heads into this race, having not seen in 582 days.

However, his last racecourse appearance was an eye-catching victory, winning a Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Southwell from the fellow Godolphin-owned After The Rain.

After The Rain subsequently ran up a hat-trick of wins, and Colourful Dream is no forlorn hope in this lineup under Hollie Doyle.
