Rasselas sprung an 18-1 shock at Newcastle under Tom Eaves. Having run well first time out for us at Newcastle he was then disappointing at Hamilton but back to Newcastle Tom settled him out the back and he was well on top at the finish.
"A modest handicap and a surprise winner. RASSELAS, who ran well on soft over C&D on his first start for the yard, had disappointed since but came from well back to take this with a strong finish. Generally suited by stiff, right-handed tracks, he will not be badly treated, even after a rise in the weights."
