Despite the string of seconds next to his name Fredo (4:10) is not un-genuine and he can finally get off the mark over fences at Towcester on Thursday.
Ian Williams’ seven-year-old chased home the ill-fated Tell Massini on debut and the smart Master Of The Hall next time.
On his last two starts the Lomitas gelding has raced over a trip shy of his best and the step back up in trip is bound to suit, especially in testing ground on a stiff track.
With Willie Mullins’ horses in such good order Bishopsfurze (3:15) is fancied to land the Listed novice hurdle at Clonmel.
The six-year-old has ground to make up on Fists Of Fury from their meeting last month, but the selection was badly hampered by a faller that day and returned to winning ways at Thurles just 11 days later.
Paul Townend’s mount relishes testing ground and he can score for the in-form team, who took this in 2008 with the high-class Cooldine.
Paul Ferguson’s Jumpers To Follow 2010-11 is available hot off the press from the 1st October for just £9.99
