Back Barenger @ 8.615/2 in the 12:55 at Newbury 
Lay The Paparrazi Kid @ 4.1 in the 14:40 at Newbury 
Back Ego Sum @ 4.216/5 in the 15:05 at Doncaster
 

We start with the 12:55 Hcap Chase and our first recommended bet, a back of Barenger at 8.615/2, after healthy interest at double-figure prices. He ran a good race on his re-appearance, having every chance until meeting the third-last fence all wrong. Opposition is headed by Comeonginger, whose winning exploits and rising handicap mark help to set him a difficult task today. Our selection is sure to appreciate the testing conditions and is a winner over today's distance. In a competitive race, we're pinning our notes on to Ali Stronge's Barenger.

The Paparrazi Kid has been something of a Black Friday giveaway on the exchange, sliding out a full point to 4.1. He looked good when last seen on course, beating fellow Willie Mullins inmate Felix Younger, and he has gone well fresh, so the eleven month lay-off is not a great concern. Most likely, rival claims for Pendra and Sound Investment are forcing the layers' hand and with a couple of others in the field to be reckoned with, we'll side with the numbers and recommend a lay on The Paparazzi Kid at 4.1.

We step over to Doncaster for a striking gamble on Ergo Sum in the 15:05. First run for Ben Pauling and backed to the exclusion of all others in the field, from 5.72 in to 4.3100/30, we are happy to side with Timeform who surmise that he may be suited by today's step up in trip.
