2.55 Newbury, Wednesday, January 18

In the 2.55 at Newbury on Wednesday, former pointer Potters Corner has made a solid, if unspectacular, start to his career over regulation fences and, with Davy Russell coming for the ride, can be fancied to open his account in this sphere. His most recent fourth of nine, beaten 7¾ lengths, behind Beware The Bear at Ascot in November has been franked by the winner and the runner-up, Singlefarmpayment, so the form looks strong. The Indian Danehill gelding has been fairly lightly raced for a seven-year-old and retains plenty of scope for improvement over the larger obstacles. His most recent win came on the prevailing soft going, but he’d previously won twice on good going so she should run his race whatever the weather in the South East.

Selection: Newbury 2.55 Potters Corner to win
