Horse Racing tips: Newcastle and Hereford tips from Graeme Rodway

There are four meetings in Britain on Tuesday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway is back with his best bets across the cards.

Graeme Rodway's tips

3.00 Hereford - Frankie Faulkner @ 9/2
4.20 Newcastle - Savrola @ 8/1
8.00 Newcastle - Eyes @ 8/1

3.00 Hereford - Frankie Faulkner @ 9/2

The 3m1f novices' handicap chase (3.00) at Hereford looks like a good opportunity for the ultra-consistent FRANKIE FAULKNER to break his maiden at the fourth attempt over fences.

This dual point winner didn't waste any time over hurdles and was immediately switched to chasing following his victory in a maiden hurdle at Newton Abbot in July. He has progressed with each start over fences since and improved his Racing Post Rating each time.

Frankie Faulkner was unlucky not to break his duck over fences when beaten just a short-head into second in a 3m2f handicap chase at Newton Abbot last month and is well handicapped having gone up just 1lb in the weights. His saddle also slipped on that occasion.

This is a stronger race, but he was unlucky not to win last time and there should be plenty of further progress to come for Evan Williams, who does well with this type of young chaser.

Graeme Rodway's tip:

Frankie Faulkner @ 9/2 - 1pt win

4.20 Newcastle - Savrola @ 8/1

The 1m2f Handicap (4.20) at Newcastle could go to the all-weather winner SAVROLA, who makes a long trip north from James Ferguson's stable in Newmarket and that is a positive.

Savrola has been running consistently well on the all-weather and his last two runs in cheekpieces have been two of his best. He was beaten only half a length in second in a 1m2f handicap at Lingfield in September and forced a good pace when fourth at Kempton last time.

His last win came off this mark of 77 on Tapeta at Wolverhampton and it looks significant that Ferguson returns Savrola to the same surface in this attempt to add another victory.

Danny Muscutt, who has been on board for Savrola's last three starts, is back in the saddle and Ferguson is 8-31 (26 per cent) when he sends runners on the 250-mile trip to Newcastle.

Graeme Rodway's tip:

Savrola @ 8/1 - 1pt win

8.00 Newcastle - Eyes @ 8/1

The first division of the 6f handicap (8.00) at Newcastle could go to EYES, who is consistent in comparison to many of the runners in this low grade and seems to like Newcastle. She runs the track well.

It's nearly two years since her last win, but that came at this course and she ran her best recent race here. She was beaten only three-quarters of a length in fourth over course and distance last month and that was off a 1lb higher mark without a jockey claiming from her.

Ben Sanderson takes 3lb off her back here, so Eyes is 4lb lower and the cheekpieces that she has worn with success in the past return to replace blinkers. That might help sharpen her up.

It's not difficult to forgive her poor run on the Polytrack at Chelmsford last time, as she appears to save her best for this venue, and the return to Newcastle might help bring about a resurgence.

Graeme Rodway's tip:

Eyes @ 8/1 - 1pt win
