Top tipster Andrew Mount enjoyed an each-way return from his 80-1 recommendation Boro Babe at Leicester on Thursday and has five bets across three races on Friday
BOUGHTBEFORELUNCH isn’t 100% straightforward but he finished second in this race last year and the switch from his usual cheekpieces to first-time blinkers could help. His sole win came in first-time headgear and he was very consistent after the cheekpieces were fitted, recording figures of 1U322232F3823 (1-13), with the eighth place coming on his reappearance.
Last year’s winner LE BOIZELO has only ever scored here or at Wincanton, with combined figures at the two venues of 1U14141 (4-7). His record second-time out reads 1233 (1-4) and he looks sure to improve for last month’s comeback run when eighth of 18 at Exeter.
PANORAMIC – 4.45 Newcastle
James Tate has a fine recent record in nurseries, scoring with 14 of his 50 runners since 2018 for a profit of £14.95 to a £1 level stake at SP (+£23.30 at Betfair SP). Ten of the 14 winners came on the all-weather and PANORAMIC can take a step forward now running in a handicap for the first time. Her sire, Helmet, gets plenty of winners at this venue and she looks well drawn in stall 10.

With a tailwind forecast at Newcastle this evening, prominent racers might do better than usual and MOHAREB could enjoy the run of things in this 6f handicap. He found only Ghalyoon too good in a hot 7f handicap at Chelmsford last time – racing keenly from his wide draw - and won’t be inconvenienced by the drop back to 6f and return to Tapeta.
SECRET VENTURE is another who could be prominent throughout now that he’s fitted with first-time cheekpieces and stepped back up in trip. He never got competitive over 5f here last month on his first start following wind surgery but he probably needed that after a break of eight months. Since the start of 2010, trainer Kevin Ryan and jockey Kevin Stott are nine from 30 when combining with a first-time cheekpieced runner in handicap company for a profit of £59.33 to a £1 level stake at SP.
