Friday: 5.45 Newcastle
Big Every day Boosts Solely At BetUK Handicap | 5f | 4yo+ | SKY

The 3lb well-in Modular Magic is a reasonably heat favorite for this handicap, which is comprehensible contemplating he was denied a transparent run on the observe eight days in the past however nonetheless solely failed by a brief head to catch Kraken Energy.

With the winner stepping into once more beneath a 5lb penalty the next day, Modular Magic definitely appears good off the identical mark, however that is removed from a gimme as there are many others who arrive in respectable nick.

The coaching partnership of David and Nicola Barron muddy the waters by including Bert Kibbler as back-up to the favorite, and whereas he hasn’t run for a yr, he comes right here on a hat-trick.

Bert Kibbler was a well-backed and comfy scorer again in January 2022 and the runner-up has received thrice since, and stays on a 7lb larger mark, so this five-year-old might have extra to supply.

Bellagio Man hasn’t been out of the primary three in seven begins since October, and whereas he was undone by his standard sluggish begin when dropped to the minimal journey at Wolverhampton final time, that will likely be much less of a hindrance on this straight observe.

Archie Watson has a 26 per cent strike-rate within the final 5 years at Newcastle and saddles Dusky Prince, who was one place behind Bellagio Man at Wolverhampton, and whereas he had extra of the run of the race, he now will get the proficient and really a lot in-form Taylor Fisher to cut back his burden by 5lb.

Irish raider Gerard O’Leary has had one winner from two runners on the observe. He saddles Maritime Guidelines, who has run with credit score on his final two begins at Dundalk since becoming a member of from Richard Hannon, for whom he received at Chelmsford as a juvenile. He’s, nonetheless, additionally engaged within the 6.30 at Dundalk.

What they are saying

Kevin Frost, coach of Papa Don’t Preach
He should still be a few kilos excessive within the handicap and has had hassle firstly, but when he flies the gates he might take some catching as he’s all about pace.

Antony Brittain, coach of Bellagio Man
The stiff 5 furlongs at Newcastle ought to go well with him higher than the sharp 5 at Wolverhampton final time, the place he was slowly away and ran on late. He’s extremely constant and likes to drop in, so his attract stall one is not any difficulty.

Steve Brown, assistant to Julie Camacho, coach of Military Of India
We have been dissatisfied when he was crushed the final time he ran at this observe however the winner went onto win his subsequent two, so it wasn’t unhealthy kind on reflection. You possibly can overlook his final run at Southwell as he got here out of the stalls along with his blind nonetheless on.

David Barron, joint-trainer of Bert Kibbler and Modular Magic
Bert Kibbler had an harm after the second of his two wins final yr and can come on for the run. Modular Magic was arguably a bit unfortunate when second there final time and if issues had dropped in a different way he would have received. Hopefully each horses are within the cash.
