Paul Ferguson scored with a magnificent 20/1 treble on Friday. Today he has two more selections for us from Prestbury Park, Cheltenham.
The hugely exciting Long Run (2:35) returns to action in this afternoon’s Paddy Power Gold Cup and, despite a mark of 158, he looks very well handicapped. Early price; 7/2 Ladbrokes
Nicky Henderson’s five-year-old, who has the world at his feet, could be in a different league to today’s rivals and is fancied to win before going on to bigger and better things.
Earlier on the card Wayward Prince (1:20) is taken to maintain his unbeaten record over fences, having made a winning debut at Huntingdon recently. Early Price; 9/4 Betfred
The Grade 1 winning hurdler has more on his plate here, but he looked a novice to keep on side last time and he can take the step up in class in his stride.
1:20 Cheltenham: Wayward Prince
2:35 Cheltenham: Long Run
