Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Mckenzie’s Friend in the Market Rasen 13:45. Compare odds and bet.
Despite not getting his head in front in bumpers MCKENZIE’S FRIEND (1:45) still showed a decent level of form in two starts and can land the maiden hurdle at Market Rasen.
Oliver Sherwood’s four-year-old had Saturday’s Ascot scorer Cultivator back in third when runner-up to The Unit at Newbury, before finishing third in what appeared a warm event at Warwick during May.
Criq Rock also came out of that DBS bumper to score last week and the Flemensfirth gelding can further bolster that piece of form here. Having displayed signs of greenness on both starts to date, he ought to have improved mentally for his summer break, and he rates a decent prospect.
1:45 Market Rasen – Mckenzie’s Friend; 3/1 bet365
