Fergie’s Wednesday double

Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Wednesday; Value At Risk in the Newbury 2:45 and Tara Mist in the Ludlow 3.00. Compare odds and bet.

Third in the Grade 1 bumper at Punchestown in April Value At Risk (2:45) makes his debut over hurdles and for trainer Dan Skelton this afternoon, and is fancied to land Newbury’s 2m3f novices’ hurdle.

The Kafy Tara gelding won bumpers at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown last December, having earlier finished runner-up behind Albert Bartlett winner Very Wood at the previous season’s Punchestown Festival.

His Grade 1 third now reads particularly well and, given that the step up in trip should be right up his street (plenty of stamina on the dam’s side), he is very much the one to beat, provided he is tuned up for his seasonal reappearance.

Up at Ludlow, another Kayf Tara to back on hurdling debut is Tara Mist (3:00) in the 2m5f mares’ only event.

Henry Daly’s grey scored here on debut last December before finishing placed in three Listed bumpers on ground varying from heavy at Huntingdon to good at Aintree.

Again, the step up in trip ought to suit and this looks a more suitable starting point than Haydock’s Listed contest that she is also entered in at the weekend.

I’ve got a day off tomorrow, but I’ll be back on Friday when Ascot takes centre stage.

Wednesday’s selections:
2:45 Newbury: Value At Risk; 5/4 Paddy Power
3:00 Ludlow: Tara Mist; 11/10 Skybet
