Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Howlongisafoot in the Sandown 15:25. Compare odds and bet.
His lack of experience is a slight concern, but Howlongisafoot (3:25) has always promised to develop into a nice horse and he looks, potentially, a class apart in today’s Grand Military Gold Cup.
Paul Nicholls’ six-year-old chased home subsequent Cheltenham winner Generous Ransom here in December, before winning a Taunton handicap off 125. Competitive off the same mark in a decent handicap hurdle at Cheltenham earlier in the season, the Beneficial gelding looks more progressive than today’s opponents – he opened up 13-8 on Thursday evening.
