Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Wednesday; Blaklion in the Perth 14:25. Compare odds and bet.
Nigel Twiston-Davies invariably gets going at this time of the year and he also tends to do well with his raiders up at Perth, so it can be presumed that today’s opener has been the plan for some time with smart bumper performer Blaklion (2:25).
An Irish points winner back in January, the Kayf Tara gelding created a big impression when winning a Ffos Las bumper on his rules debut in March, before following up in more workmanlike fashion at Haydock the following month.
The selection beat the useful Degooch that day (won three of his next four starts) and, if the tissue price of odds-against is to be believed, Blaklion looks a bet on his hurdles bow, despite facing a couple of fair Irish raiders.
2:25 Perth: Blaklion; 5/6 Betfair
