Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Sizing Italy in the Killarney 16:40. Compare odds and bet.
The week’s selections continue from Killarney on Thursday, with Sizing Italy (4:40) fancied to land the Dawn Milk Run Handicap Hurdle for Henry De Bromhead and Barry Geraghty.
A winner over fences at last year’s meeting, he ran just twice subsequently over the larger obstacles, before returning to action on the Flat in late May. Runner-up to Rebel Fitz in a novice chase at Galway last August, the Milan gelding looks potentially well in on his return to hurdles.
The selection opened up 2-1 (Paddy Power) last night, with effortless Downpatrick winner Orgilgo Bay next in the market under his 6lb penalty. Formerly classy on the level, the four-year-old looks an obvious threat, but has to concede 13lbs to the selection.
