Side With Ahaaly At Dundalk

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us today and considers Aintree; Ahaaly in the 18.50 at Dundalk. Compare odds and bet

Today gives us the final opportunity to top up the funds before Aintree’s three-day Grand National fixture kicks off tomorrow and the best of the domestic action comes from Nottingham, in the shape of the Listed “Further Flight” Stakes.

Sir Henry Cecil’s Solar Sky is a horse I’m interested in this season, but I’d hoped he would have been a bigger price than 4/1 for today’s seasonal reappearance in what looks a competitive affair.

He’s certainly one to watch and one worth considering each-way if he drifts, but for the day’s selection I’m heading over to Dundalk and Ahaaly (6:50) who can take the www.dundalkstadium.com Maiden for Kevin Prendergast.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel moved really well at Limerick on debut just 13 days ago, before being worn down late on by John Oxx’s Shebella, with the pair pulling clear of a 77 rated filly.

The selection looks a ready-made winner and, having travelled so strongly last time, the drop in trip shouldn’t inconvenience her. Oxx again saddles the chief danger according to the market, so it will be interesting to see if his runner Wasabi’s House is backed, as he should know what is required to beat Ahaaly.

Back to Aintree and, as I write this morning’s column, it’s dry at the minute but we had plenty of rain again yesterday so it was no surprise to see the mud-lovers Giles Cross and West End Rocker backed for the Grand National yesterday.

Further rain is expected today, so it looks almost certain that the meeting will begin with the ground on the soft side.

Wednesday’s selection:
6:50 Dundalk Ahaaly
