John Ferguson Backing Ability Of High Ridge Ahead Of Cheltenham Festival Showdown
15th March 2016 admin

Newmarket handler John Ferguson has given a strong indication of which horse he believes will be covered in glory when Cheltenham commences today.

åÊ

Champion bumper contender High Ridge is currently a 12/1 shot to win the race which will in fact be Ferguson‰Ûªs last before leaving the sport to become chief executive at Godolphin.

åÊ

The five-year-old horse won its last outing at Catterick, and Ferguson believes the horse can certainly maintain that form heading in to Cheltenham.

åÊ

‰ÛÏHe doesn‰Ûªt have great acceleration but he‰Ûªs a real grinder and I think that‰Ûªs exactly what you need in the Champion Bumper.

åÊ


åÊ

‰ÛÏHe won really well last time, admittedly only at Catterick, but the form has worked out well and he‰Ûªs a horse that‰Ûªs pleased us throughout; he‰Ûªs well-bred and deserves his chance.‰Û


Ferguson is predicting a solid performance from High Ridge, but he also has a few other runners set to take part at the prestigious festival.
