Jamie Spencer, who won the big race at Pontefract yesterday for Lynda Ramsden, has good pros-pects of doing the Thirsk trainer another good turn at Newcastle tomorrow.

The Newmarket-based jockey teams up with Favour in the Levy Board Handicap, and is fancied to come out on top on the three-year-old, just as he did on New Mexican at Pontefract yesterday.

Spencer was in the saddle at Leicester last week when Favour failed by just a short-head to catch Star Of Arabia after producing a storming late finish.

Virtually a winner without a penalty, Favour should get her head in front tomorrow.

Kevin Darley, enjoying a fine end to the campaign, can get his name on the scoresheet again.

The Sheriff Hutton jockey teams up with Telefonica, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, in the Joe Reardon Lifetine In Racing Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

Telefonica has had just one outing to date, finishing a promising fourth. This looks a good opportunity for her to break her duck.

Greenwich Meantime will not be short of supporters in the Putter And Flutter Maiden Stakes.

Henry Cecil's colt has shown ability in all his three races this season and looks poised to open his winning account in the hands of Willie Ryan.

At Nottingham, Cyfrwys is handily weighted in the David Ashley Construction Limited Novice Stakes.

Out of the frame only once in four starts, and a respectable second to the potentially smart Rum Shot at Salisbury last time, Cyfrwys, still a maiden, gets all the allowances here and will have the further advantage of David Kinsella's 3lb claim. She should go well.

In the Browne Jacobson Handicap, Swift Tango is fancied to put his best foot forward.

Ed Dunlop's three-year-old has proved admirably consistent all season and this ten-furlongs event looks a good opportunity for him to chalk up his second success. He is awarded the nap vote.

Pat Eddery followed his sparkling double on Champions Day at New-market on Saturday with a winner at Pontefract yesterday.

The soon-to-retire legend is going out with a bang, and he can steer home another winner on the promising Named At Dinner in the Mainland Contractors Novice Stakes.

Change Partners, never out of the first three in her four starts, has good prospects of getting off the mark in the Freethcartwright LLP Maiden Stakes on behalf of trainer Roger Charlton.
