Monster double at Doncaster

Paul Ferguson has two selections from Doncaster for us on Wednesday; Peter The Mayo Man at 2.00 and Fingerontheswitch an hour later.. Compare odds and bet.

The Nicky Henderson-trained Divine Spear is a warm order to land the opener at Doncaster on Wednesday, but Neil Mulholland saddles an interesting hurdling debutant in that shape of Peter The Mayo Man (2:00) who looks a viable each-way alternative.

The six-year-old won a bumper at the third time of asking in Ireland for Sabrina Harty and the runner-up has certainly since franked that piece of form. Purchased for £120,000 on the back of that good ground success, the son of Dylan Thomas can go close here on his debut for the stable. He was available at 6-1 and 11-2 (general) overnight.

Later on the card, stable-mate Fingerontheswitch (3:00) is another worthy of support, on his return from a 75-day lay-off.

The Beneficial gelding, who chased home Shantou Village in one of his Irish points, beat River Don runner-up Ballydine in a maiden hurdle back in October, form that makes him look potentially well handicapped.

Fourth at Cheltenham in November, behind the smart Unowhatimeanharry, he failed to handle the soft ground at the same venue the following month and the ground is likely to be the main reason for his absence since. Back on a sounder surface, he should go very close off 123 here and it was no surprise to see the early prices (opened up 6-1) disappearing on Tuesday evening.

In the same race Fort Worth is another horse that I believe is on a fair mark and another that should appreciate today’s better ground. He, too, returns from a short spell on the sidelines, but looks capable of going well.

Wednesday’s selections:
2:00 Doncaster: Peter The Mayo Man; 11/2 bet365
3:00 Doncaster: Fingerontheswitch; 11/4 bet365
