Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Friday; Sign Of A Victory in the York 16:50 and One For The Gov’Nr 19:40 Aintree. Compare odds and bet.
Only fifth on his handicap debut at Ascot last month SIGN OF A VICTORY (4:50) can make it two from three on the Flat at York on Friday.
Nicky Henderson’s classy hurdler steps up in trip this afternoon and he remains on a fair mark (88). A Wolverhampton maiden winner last December, the seven-year-old was contesting the Champion Hurdle just two starts back and can tee up a crack at one of the big summer handicaps by taking this.
Stable-mate ONE FOR THE GUV’NR (7:40) can complete an across-the-card double for the Seven Barrows outfit, at Aintree this evening.
The Oscar gelding hasn’t been seen since unseating at Huntingdon back in February. Beaten at the time, he had travelled well for a long way and the drop in trip is a positive.
Still lightly raced, he has conditions to suit and looks capable of defying top weight.
