3:30 Newcastle – Valley Forge
We were with Andrew Balding’s VALLEY FORGE when he won last year’s Melrose Stakes, and he is well-suited by big-field handicaps on that showing. He seems to need a sound surface to show his form on turf, and returned to his best when winning over this trip at Haydock last time.
A wide draw here is not a problem given his run style, or indeed how this race has panned out in recent years. It’s important to have a turn of foot in the Northumberland Plate these days, as the tactical nature of the contest means stamina alone is not enough, and Valley Forge has the ideal blend of staying power and tactical speed to ensure this race shows him to advantage, and on top of that, two firms are offering seven places, and it seems churlish not to get involved on such generous terms.
