Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Wednesday; Petapenko in the Perth 14:10. Compare odds and bet.
Malcolm Jefferson’s horses continue to run well and the Norton based trainer saddles an interesting runner in the opener at Perth on Wednesday, in the shape of Petapenko (2:10).
The five-year-old has been off the track since finishing a promising third behind Big River in a maiden hurdle at Kelso in October, presumably being kept away from winter ground, having earlier won his bumper on good-to-firm.
The step up in trip should suit and, while this looks a competitive little affair, he arrives here fresher than most and with his stable in good form.
2:10 Perth: Petapenko; 7/2 @ bet365
