Rebel & Grands Set For Success

Two firsts and a second for Paul Ferguson on Friday we have two selections today; Rebel Rebellion in the 12:20 at Ascot: and Grands Crus in the 2:50 at Haydock

An impressive winner at Cheltenham last Sunday, Grands Crus (2:50) is taken to follow up under a 6lb penalty in the valuable fixed brush handicap hurdle at Haydock on Saturday.

The step up in trip shouldn’t inconvenience the grey and the more rain the better, as the five-year-old relishes a testing surface. Early price; 7/4 Sportingbet

Down at Ascot Rebel Rebellion (12:20) is fancied to land the opening novices’ hurdle on his debut for Paul Nicholls. Early price 11/8 bet365

The Irish points winner chased home Friday’s impressive winner, Megastar, on his rules debut in a Sandown bumper last November and, after beating inferior opposition on the all-weather at Southwell, he again finished behind Megastar at Aintree.

Switched from the Charlie Mann yard, the son of Lord Americo should make his mark in staying novice company over hurdles this season.

Saturday’s selections:
12:20 Ascot: Rebel Rebellion
2:50 Haydock: Grands Crus

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