Paul Ferguson has two selections for us from Worcester on Wednesday; Rosie Probert at 4.20 and Another Hero at 4.50. Compare odds and bet.
AP McCoy provided this column with a double yesterday and the champion jockey can repeat the trick this afternoon at Worcester, starting with Rosie Probert (4:20) in the 2m novices’ hurdle.
Nicky Henderson’s Dylan Thomas filly made a winning hurdles debut in May and really ought to have followed up at Southwell, where a final flight blunder cost her success. She has since won a maiden on the Flat at Epsom and the four-year-old, who looks a useful novice for the time of year, should return to winning ways if McCoy can get her jumping more fluently.
Another who is useful for the time of year is Another Hero (4:50) who is unbeaten in a brace of bumpers and a Newton Abbot maiden hurdle just 16 days ago.
The son of Kalanisi travelled really well last time and should appreciate both the decent ground and the slight step up in trip. Despite being burdened with a 7lb penalty (has to concede 4lbs to all four older rivals) the four-year-old is taken to maintain his 100% record and Jonjo O’Neill’s fine run of form.
