Better from Gay's horse. Original quote: "Versatile sort in terms of trip and does act well on the AW so this first run at Newcastle, we feel, will suit. Continues to drop down the handicap as he's currently 11 races without a win. Is 3lbs lower than last time and Luke takes over in the saddle. Overall we'd like to see a return to form on the track and more consistency but dropping mark is a help."
