Trio Set For New Year Success

Paul Ferguson has a three selections for a winning start to 2011 at Cheltenham and Fairyhouse

If you have woken up with a headache this morning, then trying to find a winner or two at Cheltenham isn’t going to be the ideal hangover cure, as the card looks devilishly difficult.

While it looks particularly competitive, it is a high-class day’s racing at jumps HQ and the Grade 2 Dipper Novices’ Chase looks the race of the day.

This race wouldn’t be out of place at the Festival and, while it would usually appeal as a race to watch rather than punt in, I can’t resist but to side with Mr Thriller (2:00) who receives weight from his main market rivals.

A high-class soft ground hurdler, he was in the process of running a massive race against RSA favourite, Time For Rupert, on debut before falling two out.

David Pipe’s string is in fine form at present and the six-year-old can land what promises to be a fantastic race.

Another exciting novice chase prospect is Enterprise Park (3:15) who can make a winning fencing debut at Fairyhouse for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend.

The son of Goldmark was pulled-up when last seen at the Cheltenham Festival, but was previously unbeaten and relishes testing ground.

Earlier on the card Crash (1:10) is worthy of support in the 2m4f maiden hurdle for Michael Hourigan and the Gigginstown House Stud.

A heavy ground point-to-point winner last Christmas, he made a successful rules debut in a bumper at the track in February where he had several subsequent winners in behind.

Saturday’s selections:

1:10 Fairyhouse: Crash

2:00 Cheltenham: Mr Thriller

3:15 Fairyhouse: Enterprise Park

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