Paul Ferguson fancies Dunraven Storm and Ballycracken to do the business at Exeter On Thursday.
Dual bumper winner Dunraven Storm (2:25) can make a winning hurdles debut for the in-form Philip Hobbs stable in the opener at Exeter on Thursday.
A winner on debut at Ascot, he bounced back to winning ways at this track in April after flopping in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham.
Binocular’s half-brother Remember Now is a really interesting opponent, but he has been off for some time and is likely to come on for the run.
Remember Now’s stable-mate Ballycracken (4:45) may not be one of the stable-stars at Seven Barrows, but he has been given a chance by the handicapper and is of interest later on the card.
His point-to-point form reads well and he was sent off favourite on both starts for Nicky Henderson last winter. The better ground and shorter trip should be in his favour here.
2:25 Exeter Dunraven Storm
4:45 Exeter Ballycracken
