4.35 Newbury, Friday, October 27

Having run inexplicably poorly when last of 13 at Ascot on his penultimate start, Pettochside bounced back with a game win at Goodwood 12 days ago and may be capable of defying a 6lb penalty in the Thatcham Butchers Handicap (4.35) at Newbury on Friday. John Bridger’s 8-year-old has done most of his winning with plenty of cut in the ground and has yet to run a bad race for Holly Doyle so, while he probably needs to record a career-best effort to win, he has plenty going for him. He’s 6lb worse off for a neck with Baron Bolt on their running at Goodwood, so it’s interesting that connections are keen to reoppose Paul Cole’s 4-year-old on disadvantageous terms. Pettochside is from a fairly unfashionable stable, too, so there’s every chance he could be underestimated by backers and layers alike, but could nevertheless go well at a decent price.

Selection: Newbury 4.35 Pettochside to win 7-1
