Newbury’s NAP: KING OTTOKAR | 5:45pm BetVictor Proud Sponsors Of Newbury Handicap | Dom’s Pick
Given the form of his course win back in April, seeing off the likes of Dashing Willoughby, Space Blues, Turgenev and Headman, it’s remarkable to think that Charlie Fellowes’s gelding is running off a mark of 97 here.
He’s ran well in some competitive handicap’s of late, apart from the Lincoln back in March, but he returned to form over track-and-trip in May.
The visor is back on and he’s in the capable hands of Rossa Ryan as he bids for a first success in more than two years, and a third win in Berkshire.

Chasing the hat-trick, Ed Walker’s representative looks to hold strong claims in the finale under Andrea Atzeni.
He dismantled fields at Ffos Las on two occasions and could still be on a lenient mark despite a 7lb rise.
William Haggas’s Just Jacob has twice failed to reward market support so he could be one to take on here with the son of Camelot the obvious alternative.
