You can read his big each-way double and longshot for Friday here.

But it is to Newcastle we go for his main fancy.

LORD OF THE GLEN (8.05 Newcastle, nap)

A quick look at the form figures of Phil Dennis’s five-year-old shows just how consistent he is. He has not been out of the frame in his past six runs with three wins in that sequence.

He swooped late for a cosy success at Southwell last time with plenty left in the tank.

He loves it around here too with two wins and a pair of places from his past four visits.

A 5lb penalty won’t stop him striking again.

STAINSBY GIRL (1.45 Hexham, nb)

She finished last season with an easy win at Newcastle and has the champion jockey Brian Hughes on board for this comeback.

She is another who kept hitting the podium last season and was never worse than third from five outings.

She was a close second the last time she ran here and can go one better.

OCEAN DRIFTER (12.50 Fontwell, treble)

Oliver Sherwood’s five-year-old can get off the mark at the third attempt.

He showed promise when third in a Hereford bumper on debut in March and took a big step forward when second on his hurdles debut at Uttoxeter.

It won’t take a lot more to get off the mark in what looks a shallow contest.
