Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Sunday; Ma Filleule in the 2.20 at Taunton. Compare odds and bet.
Taunton passes the 7:30am inspection on Sunday morning, Nicky Henderson’s four-year-old Ma Filleule (2:20) is fancied to land the feature contest, the Listed Totepool.com Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle.
The grey bolted up at Haydock on her British debut in October, before travelling like much the best filly in a similar contest to this at Newbury on Hennessy day. After looking all over the winner when taking up the running, she tied up slightly on the long run in and was eventually worn down by She Ranks Me, with Call Me A Star and Eleven Fifty Nine well held in third and fourth, respectively.
The winner has since come out and give weight away and a beating to a useful field in another Listed event at Haydock and, with this tighter track sure to suit the selection, she is fancied to confirm form over Alan King’s and Anthony Honeyball’s mares.
The heavy ground is also in favour of the daughter of Turgeon, who has plenty of form on testing ground from her days in France (twice won over fences on ground described as ‘very soft’), and Barry Geraghty’s mount should prove difficult to beat with conditions almost ideal.
