Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Our Island in the Ffos Las 15.30. Compare odds and bet.
Tim Vaughan has his string in good order at present and Our Island (3:30) is taken to gain compensation from his course-and-distance second just 11 days ago, at Ffos Las on Thursday.
The nine-year-old appreciated the drop in class and looked all over the winner for most of the home straight, only for Sam Twiston-Davies to collar him aboard Tullyraine late on.
The son of Turtle Island has only actually won once from 18 chase starts, but he races off the same mark again today and this looks his best opportunity for some time to get his head back in front. The selection, who is partnered by the in-form Dougie Costello, was trading at 7-4 overnight.
3:30 Ffos Las: Our Island; 7/4 William Hill
