Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Wednesday; King Of The Night in the Uttoxeter 3.50 and Lyrical Theatre in the 7.30 at Galway. Compare odds and bet.
Malcolm Jefferson’s 10-year-old was a smart hurdler for Paul Nicholls a few years back and actually got within a nose of Sprinter Sacre in a bumper at Ascot.
He relishes decent ground over today’s sort of trip and, though he didn’t win over fences last term, he showed he still retained a decent level of ability and he is very much of interest returning under optimum conditions.
Available at 8-1 overnight (outsider), he is probably one to back to win, with only 2 places available and, if he is anywhere near his best and on a going day, he could outclass this lot, despite top-weight.
Over in Ireland, the concluding bumper at Galway looks an absolute cracker, with Princely Conn probably the pick on all known form.
Thomas Mullins’ five-year-old is hugely respected, but Willie Mullins’ mare Lyrical Theatre (7:30) looked an extremely exciting prospect when bolting up in a weak event on debut and could be up to the task.
The daughter of King’s Theatre could hardly have won any easier on debut and, though this is a big step up in class, she is taken to maintain her 100% record.
