Back Rebel Fitz Each Way

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Rebel Fitz in the 18.05 at Punchestown. Compare odds and bet

Of the five races on the penultimate day of the Punchestown Festival, the Grade 1 Cathal Ryan Memorial Champion Novice Hurdle looks the best from a betting perspective.

It’s hard to put a line through any of the eight runners, but in Rebel Fitz (6:05) we’re able to back a fresh horse (been off since November) who likes to dictate matters from the front and he could well poach a soft lead here under Barry Geraghty.

Being handy hasn’t been a bad thing this week and a return to a right-handed track will suit the improving seven-year-old, who finished runner-up to the smart Mount Benbulben when last seen.

His earlier successes came on much better ground, which is an obvious concern here, but he seemed to handle the testing conditions at Navan last time and his French pedigree gives a hint that he could get away with it.
If he does handle the really bad ground, he could spring a surprise from the front in a competitive heat and is worth backing each-way at 9/1 with the dead eight runners.

Friday’s selection:
6:05 Punchestown: Rebel Fitz (each-way 9/1 Betfred)
