Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Wednesday; Vago Collonges in the Taunton 14:10. Compare odds and bet.
Taunton stages a decent novices’ hurdle over an extended 2m3f on Wednesday, in which Rock The Kasbah escapes a penalty having won a boys’ race on debut.
Philip Hobbs’ five-year-old is respected, but preference is for VAGO COLLONGES (2:10) who sports a hood for the first time this afternoon.
Beaten at short odds last time, it could be that the race came too quickly for him, as he was returning from 19 months off when runner-up at Exeter just 17 days earlier.
Formerly a smart bumper performer, that Exeter form now reads pretty well in light of subsequent efforts from the winner Thomas Brown, and time might tell that he bumped into another smart prospect at Haydock.
2:10 Taunton – Vago Collonges; 9/4 Boylesports
