Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Tuesday; Phobiaphiliac in the Southwell 18:30. Compare odds and bet.
Though he looks far from the finished article PHOBIAPHILIAC (6:30) has shown promise in all three starts to date and can land Southwell’s maiden hurdle.
Out of the frame in two bumpers, Nicky Henderson’s five-year-old was beaten just 1/4 length on his debut over hurdles at Uttoxeter recently.
Once the son of Beneficial learns to settle, he could develop in to a useful performer and he certainly has the ability to win a race of this nature at this stage of his career. Though the rise in trip is an unknown, the sharp track on decent ground are very much in his favour.
6:30 Southwell – Phobiaphiliac; 3/1 bet365
