Saturday's Racing Podcast
Ant and Dec, Magpies, Cheryl Cole, Brown Ale...
Newcastle is famous for many things, with their very own course in Gosforth Park hosting Europe's richest staying handicap - the Northumberland Plate.
Yes, the Tyneside track takes centre-stage on Saturday for the feature race, where the 20 runners attempt to do what Mick Channon's now retired Som Tala did last year. Tim Easterby's hat-trick-seeking Deauville Flyer, Pond House-based Mamlook and the Donald McCain-trained Overturn all star in this class 2 heritage handicap.
Commentator Gareth Topham has attempted to pin down some potential winners of this mule minefield, follow him in if you fancy a few forecasts. Stay tuned, as next up is BBC racing correspondent Cornelius Lysaght, he's had a gander at contests from Newcastle, Newmarket and Windsor.
And what a cracking team we have for you tomorrow - Ross Brierley, Andy Holding and Niall Hannity - so the banter will be coming thick and fast, and the winning selections too no doubt.
