UK Racing Returns At Newcastle On Monday

A ten race card at Newcastle marks the return of horse racing in the UK on Monday.

The behind closed doors meeting will be the first since March 17th seeing a 10 race card in the Newcastle venue on the same day the French 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas at Deauville take place.

The Betway Chase Casino Handicap at 3:55 is the main race on the card but the 2.10 Betway Novice Stakes over 6f possibly the most exciting.

Richard Fahey-trained Bond’s Boy, who boasts an official rating of 86, and Karl Burke’s unbeaten Little Red Socks setting a good standard.

However, they could find themselves chasing home the well-bred Blazing Hot, who makes his debut under PJ McDonald.

The Irish government confirmed earlier this month Naas will host the first Irish meet when racing returns here on the 8th of June.
