£25 Uttoxeter double returns £82

Paul Ferguson two selections from Uttoxeter on Friday; Minwlla Present at 12:50 and Sgt Reckless at 2.25. Compare odds and bet.

A winner over course-and-distance on his hurdles debut earlier in the month Minella Present (12:50) escapes the penalty as that was a conditionals’ race and he is fancied to follow up at Uttoxeter on Friday.

Neil Mulholland’s Chepstow bumper winner readily brushed aside four rivals to win his maiden and, though he has more on his plate this afternoon, he is a winner amongst maidens and can reward the shrewd placement of his trainer.

A couple of classy bumper mares go head-to-head in the mares’ maiden hurdle half-an-hour later, when Aintree winner Avispa meets the unbeaten Rhythm Star, but arguably the day’s biggest crowd-puller is Sgt Reckless (2:25) in the 2m beginners’ chase.

Mick Channon’s seven-year-old was a very smart novice hurdler last term and the Supreme Novices’ fourth ought to have too much speed for today’s rivals, provided he jumps proficiently.

The Imperial Dancer gelding has the scope to take to fences and, assuming the ground doesn’t deteriorate too much overnight, he is fancied to make a winning debut.

Over at Down Royal Apache Stronghold is another who really ought to be making the best possible start to his chasing career, but he is likely to be priced up accordingly, whilst Morning Run is another to note on the card as she goes in search of the five-timer.  Likely to be difficult to beat, she too will be pretty short (8-13 overnight) and she faces another mare I am a fan of in the shape of Izzini – watch this race closely.

Friday’s selections:
12:50 Uttoxeter: Minella Present; 10/11 Paddy Power
2:25 Uttoxeter: Sgt Reckless; 8/11 Betvictor
