Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Avidity in the Musselburgh 14:10. Compare odds and bet.
Assuming James Ewart has him ready for this belated reappearance Avidity (2:10) is fancied to go well on his handicap bow at Musselburgh on Friday.
An expensive purchase as a bumper horse, the Passing Glance gelding won with authority at Ayr last March, after he had undergone a wind-op following his fourth on his hurdles debut at Newcastle.
The six-year-old was due to kick-off his campaign earlier in the week over 2m4f (meeting abandoned) but today’s shorter trip should not be a problem and he begins the season on an attractive looking mark. Available at 5-1 with several firms overnight, he should be backed each-way with nine going to post.
2:10 Musselburgh: Avidity; 5/1 William Hill
