Paul Ferguson has two selections from Warwick for us on Thursday; Peter The Mayo Man at 2.00 and Wholestone and half an hour later. Compare odds and bet.
A winner for this column earlier in the month PETER THE MAYO MAN (2:00) can defy his penalty at Warwick this afternoon.
Neil Mullholland’s headstrong six-year-old pulled right away in the closing stages at Worcester recently and he sets a fair standard.
His stable-mate Admiral Kid, and Peter Bowen’s Alf ‘N’ Dor, are both respected in the maiden hurdle, but WHOLESTONE (2:30) is preferred.
Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Craigsteel gelding created a big impression when winning his bumper a year ago, after which he shaped with promise on his debut over hurdles.
A faller on his only subsequent start, at Newcastle back in November, he is certainly worth another chance. Given he won first time out last year and the form of the yard (always hit the ground running at this time of year), he is expected to be wound up for his return.
