Fergie’s Saturday double

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Saturday; Frontiersman in the Sandown 19:20. Compare odds and bet.

Though only four horses go to post, the Rising Stars Novices’ Chase at Wincanton looks a cracker and marginal preference is for Virgilio (1:35) who is at his best on a flat track over this sort of trip.

Another favourite of this column Shantou Village has his beating on a literal form reading of their respective beatings of Brother Tedd, but I think conditions are more in favour of the Dan Skelton-trained seven-year-old, who possesses plenty of pace.

Master Dee should ensure this isn’t a crawl and Virgilio might be capable of picking off his rivals up the straight. He was third best in the market overnight, trading at 5-2.

Aintree also stages a decent small-field novices’ chase, for which Wotzizname is a short price favourite to make a winning debut. Harry Fry’s six-year-old is one I’m looking forward to, but there was a lot to like about the victory of Definite Outcome (1:30) at Chepstow and he might well be up to defying his 5lbs penalty.

The seven-year-old, who won the maiden hurdle on this card 12 months ago, travelled and jumped like a really smart prospect on debut and sets a good standard. He was trading at 2-1 overnight.

Saturday’s selections:
1:30 Aintree: Definite Outcome; 15/8 Betfred
1:35 Wincanton: Virgilio; 5/2 Skybet
