Lioness Can Roar At Newcastle

All-Weather bumpers are (thankfully) few and far between but that won’t stop me having a bet on Nala The Lioness in the Newcastle opener at 1.15pm, a rare foray into the National Hunt world for trainer Karl Burke.

Bought for 38,000 Guineas as a yearling, the daughter of Roaring Lion remains unraced on the Flat, but made her way to the racecourse in a bumper here on the sixth where she ran a blinder to be beaten a head despite showing the customary signs of inexperience before rallying close home. 

Sent off the 6/4 favourite that day, her supporters will be hoping that was money lent not lost, and it will be interesting to see if she comes in for similar support this afternoon.
