Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Dexcite in the Cartmel 16:40. Compare odds and bet.
Cartmel stages a decent handicap hurdle this afternoon, in which joint top-weight Altruism is respected, given his course form.
However, Jimmy Moffatt’s six-year-old must concede weight to several in form horses, the pick of which being DEXCITE (4:40) who can complete the hat-trick for Tom George and Paddy Brennan.
The five-year-old has got his act together on good ground of late, winning two small novice events without breaking sweat. Given how he travels, a return to handicap company should suit and a strong pace ought to aid his cause.
It’s only a little over seven months since he was contesting the Greatwood Hurdle off a mark of 128 and, despite having subsequently won twice, he has dropped to an appealing looking 122.
4:40 Cartmel – Dexcite 4/1 StanJames
