Sky Sports Racing’s senior analyst Jamie Lynch takes a close look at each of the six races on the opening night of Racing League 2021 and selects his ones to watch and lively longshots.
Race 1 – five furlongs
One to watch – FAUSTUS (Team Newmarket Red)
One of just four three-year-olds in the race, Faustus had been keeping better company prior to dipping down to a 0-75 handicap at Lingfield last month and making short work of six rivals, with the third home (Ehrmann) successful since.
That was on soft ground but Faustus won on the All-Weather in his first season, at Wolverhampton, a Tapeta surface like Newcastle.
Sprinters from Robert Cowell’s stable often stay in the fast lane of improvement once they get into it, as Lingfield suggested he was.
