Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Sunday; Carole’s Destrier 15:55 and Rock The Kasbabh 17:30 both running at Ffos Las. Compare odds and bet.
Ffos Las stages a cracking novices’ handicap chase, with Kilbree Kid and Big Casino already having shown decent form over fences, but they face a couple of exciting debutants in the shape of Royal Player and Carole’s Destrier (3:55).
Philip Hobbs’ runner showed useful form in Irish points before winning his first couple of starts under rules last term, but Neil Mulholland’s six-year-old was progressive prior to Aintree last season and can defy top-weight.
The Kayf Tara gelding will relish the trip and won’t be inconvenienced by any further rain in the build up to the meeting.
Royal Player’s connections, Philip Hobbs and owner Diana Whateley, can gain compensation in the concluding bumper, which also looks a cracking contest.
Rock The Kasbah (5:30) ran a sound race on debut, when runner-up to a smart prospect who has since joined Paul Nicholls in a Chepstow bumper during April, despite looking a little clueless.
The Shirocco gelding takes on several interesting types this afternoon, including expensive newcomer Scorpiancer as well as Sir Ivan and Solstice Son who also shaped respectably when placed previously, but Rock The Kasbah can get off the mark before going on to make up into a useful novice hurdler.
