Newcastle Speed Ratings Preview – 25 June 2015


Coming quite early in Wednesday’s schedule is a £19,000 race at Newcastle, where eight runners aged eight years or older will compete in the 15:20 Betfred Seaton Delaval Handicap.

In preparation for the race, it is time to analyse the latest horse racing speed ratings free from the Racing Post. First, though, an important consideration is that the going will be good. The turf should have just enough to provide a balanced surface.

Dream Walker has the quickest rating at 109, but is in poor form and is relatively un-fancied at 10/1. Red Avenger (7/1) is next quickest at 106, but has also exhibited poor form of late. Neither horse has won in at least four races.

Instead, look to Wilde Inspiration and its third-quickest rating of 97. Wilde Inspiration has a victory, a second, and a third in its last three races. Expect odds of approximately 11/4 on Wilde Inspiration.
