Betting Tip: Cosmic Statesman @ 5/2 with bet365

Today’s sole jumps action is at Catterick and the following three horses all look to hold decent claims.

The 2m juvenile hurdle (12.45pm) lacks strength in depth and the two to concentrate on are Berland and COSMIC STATESMAN, trained by John Ferguson and Richard Fahey respectively. The first-named was rated much higher than his rival on the flat, winning twice, and is sure to have been well schooled for his hurdles debut. However, he was best on a fast surface – both wins came on “good to firm” – and therefore has to prove himself in the soft conditions. Stable form is also a slight concern with several short-priced stablemates turned over of late.

The Fahey runner failed to win on the level but he stayed very well nonetheless and looked a natural over hurdles on his recent debut on heavy ground at Wetherby, where he kept on well to take second behind Akavit with 14 other rivals well beaten off. On that evidence, he can definitely win one of these and given his proven stamina it would be no surprise to see Brian Hughes make plenty use of him around this sharp circuit. Indeed, the partnership could well make all.
