Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Thursday; The Ould Lad in the Leicester 14:40 and Laurium in the Fontwell 15:20. Compare odds and bet.
Only fourth on his debut over hurdles at Newbury LAURIUM (3:20) is fancied to land the EBF qualifier at Fontwell on Thursday.
Nicky Henderson’s Ludlow bumper winner made a mess of the last behind stable-mate Clean Sheet and today’s extra couple of furlongs should not be an inconvenience.
Up at Leicester THE OULD LAD (2:40) can land the spoils in the novices’ limited handicap chase.
Tom George’s seven-year-old was an impressive winner over course-and-distance on his penultimate start, before finishing runner-up at Cheltenham. Despite going up another 3lbs, he can regain the winning thread with a more assured round of jumping.
