Paul Ferguson has two racing tips for us on Sunday; Beast Of Burden 14:45 and Present View 15:55 both at Chepstow. Compare odds and bet.
Chepstow again stages a cracking National Hunt card on Sunday, where Beast Of Burden (2:45) can make a winning debut over fences for Rebecca Curtis and Paul Townend.
The six-year-old won a bumper at Ffos Las and a couple of novice hurdles last term, but looks every inch a chaser and, though he bled when last sighted in the Neptune at Cheltenham, the son of Flemensfirth is an exciting recruit to the larger obstacles.
Later on the card Present View (3:55) is fancied to defy a 260-day lay-off and make a winning return for Jamie Snowden and Brendan Powell.
The former Cheltenham Festival winner is being aimed at the Paddy Power Gold Cup once again (third in the race last term), but he is likely to be wound up for this, remains on a fair mark and should appreciate the ground. In receipt of weight from Third Intention and Top Gamble the seven-year-old’s class can tell.
