Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Bandit Country in the Chepstow 15:30. Compare odds and bet.
He might not be straightforward but Bandit Country (3:30) has the ability to land a handicap off his current mark and the six-year-old will appreciate the drop back in trip at Chepstow this afternoon.
A bumper winner at Market Rasen, Jonjo O’Neill’s Flemensfirth gelding shaped well over course-and-distance on his debut over hurdles, before bumping into the smart Otago Trail (wide-margin winner yesterday) at Carlisle.
He travelled well for a long way when last seen in early December, before seemingly finding the trip too far. AP McCoy’s mount isn’t one to trust completely, but today could be the day and he was available at 11-2 with Bet Victor and Hills overnight (1/4 odds to 4 places).
3:30 Chepstow: Bandit Country; 11/2 William Hill
