Paul Ferguson has two selections at Stratford on Thursday; Tell Massini at 4.20 and Made In Time at 5.25
The Champion Bumper has already thrown up plenty of hurdles winners and Made In Time (5:25) can add his name to that list by winning the closing maiden hurdle at Stratford on Thursday. Early price evens bet365
Rebecca Curtis’s five-year-old ran better than the bare result would suggest at the Festival and had earlier won on debut before finishing runner-up in a Grade 2 at Newbury.
Earlier on the card Tell Massini (4:20) is fancied to make a winning debut over fences for Tom George and Paddy Brennan. Early price 4/7 bet365
The former Irish points winner landed a brace of Grade 2’s over hurdles (won three in all) last season and was last seen being pulled up in the Albert Bartlett.
Bought as a chaser, he can return to winning ways now he faces fences for the first time.
4:20 Stratford: Tell Massini
5:25 Stratford: Made In Time
