Forthefunofit 15/8 @ Huntingdon

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Forthefunofit in the Huntingdon 14:25. Compare odds and bet.

If Huntingdon survives an 8am inspection, the extended 2m4f 32RedSport.com Handicap Hurdle is the highlight on the card and can go the way of Forthefunofit (2:25).

Jonjo O’Neill’s lightly raced six-year-old won a Catterick novice hurdle last season and shaped well behind the smart Ulzana’s Raid at Cheltenham on his sole start this term.

This represents a drop in class, so the 2lb rise in the weights shouldn’t be an issue and it will be disappointing if he can’t win off his current mark. Given his record fresh, the lack of a recent run isn’t concerning and he can take this en route to bigger and better things.

Of the opposition, another returning from a lay-off Party Rock could outrun his odds, though this is likely to put him spot on for a spring campaign, while Nathans Pride was formerly a smart bumper performer in Ireland before winning four times over hurdles for Tim Vaughan between May and July of last year.

Another who has been on the sidelines for some time, the seven-year-old, who holds entries in the Supreme and Neptune (still a novice) at Cheltenham, might just find the ground softer than ideal. He is another who should be monitored with the spring in mind, as he has plenty of ability.

Thursday’s selection:
2:25 Huntingdon: Forthefunofit; 15/8 William Hill
