Michael Scudamore's No Through Road has been in sparkling form over the last few months and he will bid for a sixth win in seven races this afternoon when he lines up in Newcastle's Complete Building Services Handicap Chase at 2:20pm.
He will face some notable rivals in the 3m contest and Little Glenshee has been a model of consistency and will be aiming to get his head in front, whilst the likes of Silverton and Beeves can't be discounted in a fascinating renewal in the north east.
Dan Skelton's Fascino Rustico holds an entry for the Betfair Hurdle and he could look to gain jumping experience at Newcastle this afternoon when he lines up in the Robert Kirkland (Blyth) Ltd Novices' Hurdle at 1:50pm, but John Ferguson's Zip Top is an exciting prospect and will be a major danger.
Elsewhere on the card, Lucinda Russell's Cobayjayisland and Donald McCain's Up And Go will fight it out in the North Sea Logistic Novices' Handicap Chase at 3:20pm, whilst the aforementioned Scudamore will saddle Dan Emmett in the M & C Roofing Maiden Hurdle at 3:50pm.
Chelmsford City will host some decent all-weather action this afternoon and Charlie Appleby's Pretend will go in search of a hat-trick when lining up in the ROA Owners Jackpot Handicap at 3:10pm, with Marco Botti's Stonecutter an odds-on jolly for the Fulton Restaurants Handicap at 3:40pm.
Cobajayisland (1pt Win) - Newcastle 15:20pm
We will be aiming to continue our winning ways after some decent winners over the last couple of months.
Sandown Park will host some intriguing Cheltenham Festival trials at the end of January and the Scilly Isles Novices' Chase will be one of the feature events and there will be some vital clues for the chasing division, as we get ever nearer to the Prestbury Park extravaganza.
Paul Nicholls's Calipto has been subject to significant ante-post support for the Betfair Hurdle, which takes place at Newbury on February 7, but the Ditcheat inmate will face a host of classy hurdlers in what is a devilishly difficult betting heat for punters to work out.
Activial is another prominent figure in the betting and he could well be attractively handicapped, whilst the likes of Sign Of A Victory and Balgarry add great depth to what should be an informative renewal.
Reigning Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Lord Windermere could attempt to return to winning ways on February 8 when he lines up in the Irish Hennessy Gold Cup, which should provide vital clues for the Cheltenham Festival blue riband event in March.
Willie Mullins' classy duo of Boston Bob and On His Own should play their part, whilst the likes of Carlingford Lough and Foxrock are another brace of premier players in what should be a terrific contest in the Emerald Isle.
