2020 NEWCASTLE CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Looking for Norway, Herengawe and Hush Writer to quickly push to the lead and set a solid tempo. Wyong Cup form vs Mugatoo here.

How can you go past MUGATOO (1). He's got a superb winning record for a stayer and is five from seven in Australia. Just too classy in the Premier's Cup off five weeks last start, justifying the short quote. Many of today's rivals tackled the Wyong Cup and it's fair to say he would've had the wood on them had he contested that race. Loves to win and he's proven to 2400m when a narrow second to Young Rascal. Mighty hard to beat on his home track.

HUSH WRITER (2) was first-up in the Wyong Cup and was terrific when left a sitting shot for Paths Of Glory. Won this race last year (was third-up). Noticeably fitter and will look the winner at some stage. THE LORD MAYOR (9) sneaks around at good odds in most of his starts. Came from a rearward spot in the lead-up race to narrowly miss. Will get last look. ALIFEROUS (14) and CARZOFF (4) for the exotics.
