EP: 142 Newcastle, Newmarket & Hong Kong
The popular Northumberland Plate is the highlight at Newcastle on Saturday where a maximum field is due to line up in the competitive two mile contest. Newmarket hosts both the Criterion & the Fred Archer Stakes on the same afternoon, with the Irish Derby at the Curragh completing another top day of flat racing.
Today we are joined by owner Dave Lowe who is looking forward to seeing his 2-year-old filly Absolutelyflawless step up to 6 furlongs at Newmarket on Saturday.
