Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Friday; Bess of Hardwick in the 4.10 at Ascot and Central Square in the 4.30 at York. Compare odds and bet.
Twice a winner over 1m2f this season, CENTRAL SQUARE (4:30) looks open to further improvement now he goes up in trip, and he can land York’s 188Bet.com Handicap.
Roger Varian’s four-year-old only just got up to score at Ayr last time, suggesting today’s extra couple of furlongs will be ideal. A big, raw horse, Central Square also promises to be suited by York’s long straight and he remains a horse of considerable potential.
Down at Ascot BESS OF HARDWICK (4:10) can make a winning belated reappearance, in the 1m4f fillies’ handicap.
Luca Cumani’s four-year-old won a Wolverhampton maiden last back end and looks on a favourable mark for her handicap debut.
