Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Saturday; Pearl Castle in the York 14.00. Compare odds and bet.
Despite having ground to make up on Only Orsenfoolsies from their recent meeting at Musselburgh Pearl Castle (2:00) is worth supporting in the opener at York on Saturday.
The winner of this race 12 months ago, John Quinn’s five-year-old bids for back-to-back Queen Mother’s Cup successes under Serena Brotherton and the Montjeu gelding races off just 5lbs higher this afternoon.
He has gone well on his two other runs here and the selection should be able to handle the quicker conditions better than his recent conqueror, who prefers an easy surface. The same can be said of the improving Ralphy Lad, who is respected, but needs to prove himself on today’s ground.
