Tonight's action: three runners who catch the eye

Newcastle: hosts an all-weather fixture on Friday evening
1 of 1

It's set to be a busy evening with Flat and jumps action to keep us entertaining in Britain and Ireland. Here are three runners to look out for.

5.20 Curragh

You cannot help but think Cardini has been a frustrating sort, the travails of his yard notwithstanding.

Beaten favourite on debut, hecould only finish midfield againon his second start before not runninga badly in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot when he was fifth to Arthur Kitt. But since then he's been beaten twice more.

However, those performances have been a little more encouraging and his sire didn’t get rolling as a two-year-old until late in the season (and has had just two runners in Britain and Ireland this season). He might just be coming to himself.

The Throstles
6.35 Wolverhampton

This three-year-old is extremely fond of Wolverhampton and goes for a fourth course victory in six starts, and a third in a row, this evening.

Since making his debut at the track last year, The Throstles has only once failedto win when running at Wolverhampton, when he was perhaps out of his depth in a novice race won by the talented Wissahickon.

This represents his biggest challenge since as he goes up in grade, but he could hardly have been more impressive last time and he knows where the winning post is.

Secret Asset
8.45 Newcastle

With the venerable Megalala retired this week at the grand old age of 17, Secret Asset is left as one of, if not the, oldest runners on the Flat.

Now 13, Secret Asset is not the force of old by a long way– he was second in the 2011 Group 1 Prix de l’Abbaye– and competes for the 117th time this evening.

He runs off a career-low mark of 42 and has the capable Elisha Whittington riding. It would be lovely to see some of the old fire burn in his belly in the day’s final race.
