Every day, we’re going to be bringing you our lay of the day, in the hope of taking advantage of this FANTASTIC WELCOME OFFER, with Friday’s selection racing in the 5:30pm Newcastle, a Class 5 handicap, over a 1m trip and featuring eleven runners.


The Lay Of The Day

BOSTON GEORGE goes in as favourite for this 1m handicap contest at Newcastle, with just the single victory in fourteen starts so far, coming at this venue, two years ago, over 7f. On the all-weather he has that win and a place in three attempts, with the latest of those, bringing a second last time out over C&D when missing out by half a length, ten days ago in Class 4 company.


The Reasons

Boston George has been in strong form, but with his mark creeping back up, the weight increase is the concern, above anything else, with a best of third at Ayr (7f, soft), from the fewf runs at 9st 10lbs or higher. He will be in the hunt, but there are a couple of challengers who could take advantage of that increase.

Rocket Rod started off well, with a third here over 1m 2f, in June, before a second at Windsor (1m 2f, good) a fortnight later. Form had dipped in two handicap starts, but returns from a 66 day break, having been gelded and will be watched with interest, especially with market backing so far.

Pacino is the other main threat here, but has not won since April 2019, at Beverley.. He picked up a second at Haydock (1m, good) in June, but has been off the boil a little since. This looks a good opportunity to get back to form, especially having won and placed in two starts on Tapeta.

From the remaining runners, only Twin Appeal offers enough ability to warrant interest, but this looks a three runner contest for the spoils. Can Boston George take the victory or can the aforementioned challengers beat him to the line?

Lay BOSTON GEORGE and take up the excellent SMARKETS WELCOME OFFER below!
