Ascot Duo Set For Success

Paul Ferguson Has two selections at Ascot on Saturday; Tocco Ferro in the 4.15 and Radium in the 2.25.

The jumps season steps up a notch again today and, though the potentially top-class Get Me Out Of Here is feared, Tocca Ferro (4:15) is taken to land the valuable Listed handicap hurdle at Ascot.
Emma Lavelle’s grey looks a well-handicapped horse and is fancied to take the scalp of the Supreme Novices’ runner-up in receipt of 24lbs.

Nicky Henderson, who has a strong team in action this afternoon, kicked off his new weekly column in the Racing Post this morning and the trainer warned that his string may be a little bit behind schedule.
With that in mind, I’m only going to select one from Seven Barrows today and that is Radium (2:25) also down at Ascot.

A robust five-year-old, he has the look of a chaser and the trip looks ideal for this, his fencing bow.
The unknown with him is the likely good ground, as all of his racing has come on a softer surface, a comment that also applies to Tocca Ferro.

Up at Wetherby, Karasenir (4:00) should defy the double penalty in the 2m novices’ hurdle, whilst Picture Editor (3:45) is likely to prove hard to beat in Newmarket’s Zetland Stakes for Henry Cecil.
Both are likely to be sent off pretty short, however, and, on such a competitive Saturday, may not represent the best value.

Saturday’s selections:
2:25 Ascot Radium
4:15 Ascot Tocca Ferro

Paul Ferguson’s Jumpers To Follow 2010-11 is available hot off the press from the 1st October for just £9.99
