Poet's Society has recorded both novice wins on the all-weather at Newcastle and goes handicapping for the first time along with SUPER JULIUS. The latter ran well enough in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury a week ago without threatening but scored over track and trip before that when Gerrard's Fur Coat was well beaten. The Nazca Lines went close in a handicap before landing a maiden at Ripon and is preferred to Northern Thunder while Boundsy has plenty to find with the selection on Newbury running.
