On Tuesday, DRAKEFELL runs in the sprint at 4.10pm. He travels down with ONE ONE SEVEN who goes for the Classified Stakes at 5.10pm.
On Wednesday, DAAFR and QAARAAT run, with the latter making a quick reappearance following his good 2nd yesterday.
THAWRY & QAARAAT are declared for Southwell on Sunday to get us underway for 2021.
More entries through next week, so keep in touch with the entries page on the main site for all the details.
A Happy New Year to all our readers and visitors. May 2021 be brighter for all of us.
We have likely runners between Christmas and New Year on Monday and Tuesday of next week. The entries page of the main site will confirm the details.
NEWCASTLE – 28th
SOUTHWELL – 29th
A Happy Christmas to all our readers from everyone at Northgate Lodge.
Thank you for your cards, greetings and good wishes. All much appreciated.
Hope you can all enjoy the festive season in line with the times we are in.
SPARTAN FIGHTER made it 40 winners for the yard in 2020 when successful at Wolverhampton on Saturday. A total we are proud of.
We have a few more runners before the turn of the year so will see if we can add to the total still further.

We have our final runners before Xmas over the next 3 days.
We send 2 to Wolverhampton on Saturday, although we have not fared well with the draws with either SPARTAN FIGHTER or ANOTHER ANGEL.
Sunday sees DRAKEFELL, VAN DIJK & THAWRY return to Southwell. We have put young Laura Pearson claiming 7lbs on the enigmatic Thawry, in the hope her touch can yield more of his potential.
Monday will see TRAVELLER, TATHMEEN, LUCKY LODGE & QAARAAT head up to Newcastle. A track where they have all won and some of them numerous times.
We have 2 runners at Southwell on Thursday.
SLOWMO has shown a liking for the surface over the 5F trip and is going for his 3rd course and distance win.
VAN DIJK appeared to handle the surface last time and also looked worth a try at this longer trip.
We have planned runners for Saturday and Sunday
Four runners at Newcastle on Tuesday including the promising MONDAMMEJ bidding to follow up his course and distance debut win.
We also run the prolific scorer TRAVELLER, plus INTERNATIONAL LAW & RAABEH.
Our next entries are on Thursday.
KLOPP won well at Newcastle on Saturday. However, she was left out of the stalls when the starter let them go for the first time and the race was then deemed to be a false start.
Half the field including our own QAARAAT completed the course, so had to be withdrawn.
The remainder returned to the start for the race to be re-run. Klopp was soon going easily and moved clear inside the final furlong to win well. We won’t see a similar situation very often.
