Acklam Gold hasn’t run badly the last twice at Newcastle and has a chance if handling the switch back to Turf. Greta Bridge placed over this trip at Musselburgh in July and was second over a mile at Redcar last month so is another with claims but it’s about time PETAL POWER was getting her head in front. She led at this trip at Kempton last week and appears to have the beating of Who's Ur Dandy on that run. Bella Caelia handled soft going at Brighton and looks best of the rest.
