Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Sunday; Relic Rock in the Leicester (abandoned) 13:40. Compare odds and bet.
The penalised Aso sets the standard in this afternoon’s Old Year Novices’ Hurdle at Leicester, but Relic Rock (1:40) was a very useful bumper performer and the step up in trip ought to suit the six-year-old.
A winner on heavy ground at Wetherby and when defeating the smart Fletchers Flyer at Uttoxeter, the former Steve Gollings-trained gelding also finished runner-up to Zeroeshadesofgrey at Doncaster and in the Grade 2 at Aintree on Grand National day.
Also runner-up on his first attempt over timber a month ago, he can be expected to come on for that and might well be up to make a winning debut for the Brian Ellison yard.
