Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Thursday; Whisky Yankee in the Stratford 13:10 and Our Girl Salley in the Clonmel 15:25. Compare odds and bet.
A winner at the track in a bumper in March Whisky Yankee (1:10) is taken to make a winning debut over hurdles in the opening maiden at Stratford on Thursday.
The taking son of Presenting had earlier finished third behind a smart sort at Warwick (didn’t enjoy the clearest of runs that day) before scoring around here and he looks a smart sort for staying novice hurdles this term.
This is by no means a penalty kick on debut however, as there are several interesting youngsters lining up, but Paul Nicholls has his string plenty forward enough this season and the five-year-old can add to his early season tally.
Over in Ireland, classy mare Our Girl Salley (3:25) can make a winning debut over fences against her own sex at Clonmel.
Prunella Dobbs’ seven-year-old is in a different league to this lot over hurdles and should only have to put in a clear round to collect first time up. At home on deep ground, Barry Geraghty has been aboard for all four hurdles successes and it is interesting that he stays at home to ride her with Nicky Henderson looking to have several chances over here.
