Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Raven Ridge in the Newmarket 14:40. Compare odds and bet.
The highly regarded Raven Ridge (2:40) – entered in the Dante/Derby earlier in the year – has proven costly to follow so far this season, but is worth another chance on his first start since being gelded.
Michael Bell’s three-year-old still managed to show a decent level of form in a couple of early season handicaps and is surely capable of landing a nice prize from his current mark, provided he learns to settle.
The slight drop in trip in his favour this afternoon and the strong travelling son of High Chaparral is taken to strike under Jamie Spencer. The selection opened up 9-2 with Bet365 and Bet Victor on Wednesday evening.
