Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Saturday; War Singer in the York 14.05. Compare odds and bet.
Having won the Grade 1 bumper at Punchestown for David Pipe aboard The Liquidator, leading Irish amateur Jane Mangan is an eye-catching booking aboard War Singer (2:05) in the opening Queen Mother’s Cup at York on Saturday.
The six-year-old won five times on the level (mainly over this sort of trip) in France before joining the Pipe stable, for whom he kept good company in his first season over hurdles.
The son of War Chant went on to run three times on the level, most recently when shaping well over 1m2f at Haydock last September. He then returned to hurdles to score at Kelso, before shaping really well in a warm handicap hurdle won by Raya Star at Ascot last November.
Off the track since, he remains a horse of some potential and, with the trip likely to suit on the Knavesmire this afternoon and with Mangan looking worth a pound or two in this company, he is the most interesting runner on what looks a fairly ordinary Saturday. The selection was available at 9/2 with Bet Victor this morning and, with each-way terms ¼ odds to 4 places, he is worth supporting.
