Newcastle – 12th October: DOM’S NAP + NB | Tuesday’s 2 Best Bets

Our team’s two best bets for the evening card at Newcastle



Muker - Newcastle
Newcastle’s NAP: FOXY RASCAL | 6:00pm MansionBet Beaten By A Head EBF Novice Stakes | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Despite being up against a hot-favourite, George Boughey’s two-year-old filly commands respect under a penalty all the same after her win here last time out.

She proved that the five-furlong trip wasn’t to her liking on debut and improved for the step up in trip, looking sure to have another say here and appearing the obvious market alternative for value compared to Neptunian.

Can Foxy Rascal land a second win at Newcastle inside a month?

The Suffolk yard has enjoyed a 20% strike rate across the 2021 campaign and has had 13 2-y-o all-weather successes from a possible 74.

NB: POCKET THE PROFIT | 6:30pm MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Nursery

It could be a fruitful day for Boughey in the north-east with his hat-trick seeking son of Mayson appearing once again after yesterday’s win at Wolverhampton.

He battered the field under William Buick on Monday afternoon in the Black Country and Mark Crehan now eases the penalty with 3lb taken off his back.

The two-year-old won with any amount in hand at Brighton prior to that and appears to have been saved for a quickfire spell like this.
