Horse racing tips: Dave Nevison's best bets for Friday

The Gosforth Park Sprint (6.35) is a traditional evening teaser to Newcastle’s big day on Saturday and hopefully I have found one with an each way chance. In addition, it seems pretty pointless not going with one of Charlotte Jones’ mounts at Cartmel.

4.47 Cartmel: Golden Town

Golden Town won this race in 2018 off a mark of 102 and is coming back down to that sort of mark after a few disappointing efforts last season.

He was placed last spring off a rating of 125, so has tumbled down the weights quickly.

Jimmy Moffatt has two in this race and it may be significant that the excellent local hero Charlotte Jones rides this horse who instead of one who has had a recent run.

Jones has won on this horse twice after a break and there seems little possibility that Golden Town will not be fit for this assignment.

5.50 Newmarket: Beautiful Colour

Put up a really strong performance on her seasonal debut and might not need to build on that too much to score.

That was her first run at this trip and she battled on well to run the well-backed favourite Tequilamockingbird to ¾ of a length, finishing 4 ½ lengths clear of a William Haggas-trained filly in third, so I believe the form will prove strong.

She is unproven on turf but it would be surprising if she didn’t act well on it, with her dam placed at this course off a mark of 96. Her trainer, Saeed bin Suroor, has his team in excellent form.

6.35 Newcastle: Saluti

Hit a rich vein of form last summer and managed to win two handicaps over course and distance among his three victories.

Saluti is only a 1lb higher than for his latest win and if his last run at Doncaster can be a springboard then he has a real chance here. He finished with a rattle at Doncaster to be third behind Burning Cash and, with a strong pace on the cards, Paul Mulrennan may well be able to steer the eight-year-old through the pack.

Trainer Paul Midgely’s team of handicap sprinters are going well so all the signs are positive.
