Tip of the Day: Oyster source
Ben Linfoot heads to Newcastle for the Sportinglife.com Tip of the Day, with one of John Quinn's fancied to strike.
John Quinn: Can win at Newcastle on Tuesday
John Quinn has had a few winners at Newcastle recently including for owner Ross Harmon and jockey Jason Hart, and the trio can combine to winning effect again with WORLDS HIS OYSTER today.
Safe Voyage won twice for the same combination at the same track in January, his win on the 21st of the month coming on the back of a 118-day break.
Worlds His Oyster goes into Tuesday's sunbets.co.uk Handicap on the back of a similar absence, one of 136 days, and he drops down a few grades after running in a couple of Class 2s the last time we saw him on turf last September.

He didn't perform well in the last of those at Haydock, but he had run well at Newmarket prior to that and he won at the former track in a Class 4 last August off just a 3lb lower mark.
Admittedly it was back in the days of grass, but he has won on his only previous trip to Newcastle, and well, too, in his maiden, and that came on the back of a break so we know he can go well fresh.
The ease in grade can work in his favour here, as he meets a group of largely out-of-form rivals with the exception of Eastern Dragon and Mariee.
However, the former had to work hard to win last time and he's up 4lb for his troubles, while the latter, trained by Mark Johnston, normally finds at least one too good and has been beaten seven times in a row off similar marks in handicaps.
That 'one too good' could be Worlds His Oyster this time, and, at around 6/1, he's worth backing this afternoon to show his class under top-weight.
