Ecuador has been a strong and consistent performer for Gai Waterhouse through recent seasons and remains outright favourite in 2016 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au at a quote of $4.80 for success.

Posting a commendable career total of six wins and eight minors through 22 competitive starts so far, Ecuador returned to racing in spring for second in the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) before running fourth in the Group 3 Cameron Handicap (1500m).

Producing arguably a career-best performance to date to run second behind Winx in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) on October 3rd, the High Chaparral gelding ran sixth in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) on October 31st and returned to the paddock after failing to fire in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m).

Sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a first-up run for sixth in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m), Ecuador will leave from the ideal barrier 6 with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Bull Point has continued to receive plenty of support in 2016 Newcastle Newmarket betting markets this week and has cut into outright second-favouritism at current $5 odds.

Bull Point began his racing career under the guidance of Gai Waterhouse and has since transferred through the care of Chris Waller and Tony McEvoy before arriving at David Vandyke’s stables at the conclusion of his 2015 campaign.

Having run eleventh in the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) first-up, the Fastnet Rock entire charged home to win the Gardenia Handicap (1600m) on February 6th.

Nancy is yet to herald much interest in 2016 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap betting markets but remains third-favourite for success at a $5.50 quote.

Yet to contest a race at black type level, Nancy returned to racing for third in the Schweppes BM84 (1200m) on February 27th.
