Century Club: Newest member Fergal O’Brien’s 118-1 Perth accumulator

Fergal and Paddy

Another day, and another six meetings to look forward too! Ludlow, Perth, Catterick, Lingfield, Dundalk and Taunton are all on the agenda and we’ll have horse racing tips for them all. That includes a NAP of the Day and Lucky 15 tips.

I’ll be focusing on Perth, however, who will be greeted by runners from the esteemed Fergal O’Brien. Ravenswell brought up their first century at Kempton on Monday and O’Brien will be hoping to end the season on a high. Perth has been a happy hunting ground for him, saddling 24 winners from 90 runners in the last five seasons.

That £14.01 level stakes profit makes his three runners on Wednesday of strong interest and the treble pays 118-1! Find out all the details below.


2.30 Perth – Stoner’s Choice

Highly progressive over hurdles, Stoner’s Choice has won four of his six starts, with the two defeats seeing him finish second. He gained that fourth success at Ascot last time, making all in impressive fashion.

A relentless galloper with an exceptional attitude, a four-pound rise for that success is far from harsh. That was over 2m 5f, the furthest he’s been, and stepping up to three miles can only eke out more. Ground conditions are to suit and with further improvement likely, he’s going to prove tough to beat.


3.35 Perth – The Bees Knees

Breaking through over hurdles at the second attempt, The Bees Knees followed up with a victory on handicap debut at Musselburgh in November. He’s failed to win in three subsequent starts, but he’s run to a good standard, including a placed effort at Cheltenham.

He was disappointing on his return at Ludlow, but he may have needed the run after a small break and prior to that, he was progressing well in handicaps. He’s back down a pound in the weights and after just six hurdling starts, the best should be yet to come. The slightly softer ground should help matters too and he’s one to take very seriously.


4.10 Perth – Hunny Moon

Hunny Moon is a lightly-raced seven-year-old who deservedly broke a sequence of three seconds when making it fourth time lucky at Wetherby in March. She was sent to Newbury subsequently for a Grade 2 handicap, shaping well to finish fourth off today’s rating.

On paper, this is a much easier assignment and after just five hurdling starts, further improvement should be forthcoming. Three-pound claimer Max Kendrick takes over the ride and that relief should prove invaluable in a competitive heat. Uncomplicated and still unexposed, it would be disappointing if she was unable to play a leading role in this.
