Paul Ferguson has one selection from Wetherby for us today; Charlie Longsdon’s Hazy Tom in the 1.30 Compare odds.
Charlie Longsdon isn’t quite in the same rich vein of form that he was a month or so ago, but he’s still enjoying a fine season and his Hazy Tom (1:30) can maintain his unbeaten record at Wetherby on Wednesday.
The five-year-old won his sole point-to-point before winning bumpers at Bangor in April and impressively at Worcester in September.
The following month the son of Heron Island got off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles at Aintree, where he only had a head to spare at the line from Jonjo O’Neill’s It’s A Gimme.
The runner-up had useful bumper form in the book and the selection won despite not jumping fluently.
It looked as though further would suit in time, but the long straight at Wetherby will play to his strengths and, as this looks a weaker race than the Aintree contest, he is taken to defy the penalty.
