Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Monday; Old Kilcash in the Ballinrobe 20:20. Compare odds and bet.
An expensive purchase (£300,000) following a 12-length victory in a 3m point last March Old Kilcash (8:20) made a pleasing start to his career under rules, when third to Moyle Park in a Leopardsotwn bumper on Boxing Day and he really ought to get off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles.
The horse he beat in his point is Creepy, last seen finishing runner-up in a Cheltenham handicap hurdle off 130, while Moyle Park went on to frank his bumper form at the Punchestown Festival.
Disappointing back at Leopardstown in February, the son of Urban Sea really should be taking care of this lot at this time of year and Shark Hanlon will not doubt be disappointed if he doesn’t win this evening.
8:20 Ballinrobe: Old Kilcash; 2/1 bet365
