Thursday preview

Racing on Thursday sees the return of Workforce, last season's Derby and Arc winner. The Juddmonte star will carry a 7-lb penalty and is set to need the run, according to the connections. The fact that they diverged from last week's Tattersall's Gold Cup means that they wanted to avoid a clash with So You Think on his return. There are a couple of decent sorts in tomorrow's race with the likes of Cavalryman and Jan Vermeer. This race will be more for the knowledge base, and will be a litmus test as to where these horses are fitness-wise and ability-wise.

My views are set on the first race at Newcastle where I predict a finish between Lexington Spirit and Princess Banu. I cannot see Vieira Da Silva or Island Bird playing any kind of major role in this race. So an exacta in any order between the Lexington Spirit and Princess Banu is recommended.

Exacta: Lexington Spirit/Princess Banu
