Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Wednesday; Otago Trail in the Exeter 15:40. Compare odds and bet.
Though rated lower than both On Tour and Heath Hunter over hurdles OTAGO TRAIL (3:40) is fancied to land the novices’ chase at Exeter on Wednesday.
Venetia Williams’ runner is at his best in deep ground and appears to have his optimum conditions for this chase debut.
The Heron Island gelding is a former winning pointer and appealed throughout last season as the type to do well once sent chasing. The seven-year-old is two from two when racing on heavy ground and, if taking to fences, could be difficult to peg back here.
