A packed schedule of seven races will be held in Newcastle today (Tuesday 28 April). To preview the race meeting, we turn to the Racing Post for another insightful selection of horse racing speed ratings free. The going is currently good to firm, but heavy showers could change that.
The first couple of the early evening races are not particularly exciting, which is why our focus is on the 18:15 Handicap. From the 11 runners entered in this Class 4 race, it is Barney McGrew that has the top speed rating of 91.
However, Grissom and Dark Castle are just behind with their 90 ratings. There is a major drop-off after those two horses. Most of the other runners are in the 60s or 70s.
From the quickest three, Grissom is perhaps the one to watch. The nine-year-old is ranked highly for his overall rating (80) and Racing Post rating (99).
