Paul Ferguson fancies Mossey Joe to reward punters in the 8.25 at Down Royal on Friday night Compare odds and bet
Down Royal stages a decent National Hunt card in the evening, where The Real Article is an interesting runner for Edward O’Grady in the Maxmara Hurdle.
The six-year-old remains a potentially smart jumper, but he flopped on the Flat last time so is best watched on this, just his third start over timber.
Mossey Joe (8:25) is a horse I’m a huge fan of, a fact I’m sure you have picked up on the number of times I have put him up in this column, and he can make it three from three over fences in the www.thetote.com Plate Trial Handicap Chase.
Barry Geraghty’s mount has been handed a mark of 151 after just two starts, but that could still easily underestimate his ability as a chaser and he looks in a different league to his 11 rivals here.
The strong travelling chestnut shouldn’t have a problem with the drop back to 2m4f and he can take the next step up the chasing ladder in his stride.
