Sunday’s Horses To Follow

Paul Ferguson has 2 selections at on Sunday; Tavern Times in the 5.05 at Gowran Park and Stagecoach Danman in the 5.10 at Pontefract Compare odds

Namibian and Fox Hunt provided Mark Johnston and Silvestre De Sousa with a Royal Ascot double and the pair can strike at Pontefract this afternoon with Stagecoach Danman (5:10) in the penultimate contest, the extended 1m4f maiden.

Selected in this column just 9 days ago, the Montjeu colt ran a cracker over 1m6f at Goodwood, only getting mugged on the line by Cunning Act.  Though the drop back in trip isn’t ideal, he looks sure to win races and ‘SDS’ is bound to make this a thorough test from the front.

Over in Ireland Tavern Times (5:05) can land the jogforjockeys.ie Maiden Hurdle at Gowran Park for Thomas Mullins and Davy Russell.  A classy bumper performer the season before last, he finished fourth behind Cue Card and Al Ferof in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham, with countless subsequent hurdles winners in behind.

The son of Presenting had two tries over timber himself last term, falling at the second on his debut at Leopardstown over Christmas, before finishing third to the useful Darwins Fox in a Listed event when last seen.

Runner-up Tornedo Shay went on to win at the Punchestown Festival and only last week won on the Flat at Leopardstown, so a reproduction of that form ought to be good enough here, especially as he’ll appreciate the quicker ground.

Thursday’s selections:

5:05 Gowran Park: Tavern Times (4/5 Ladbrokes)

5:10 Pontefract: Stagecoach Danman (9/4 Stan James)
