The two at the head of the market in the 3m maiden hurdle look solid, but at a massive price I think Earths Furies is worth each-way support today.
A promising second on his sole start in an Irish point, he was subsequently purchased by these connections for £56,000 at the Cheltenham Sale. Having his first run for the Eugene O’Sullivan yard, he showed promise in finishing seventh of 20 at Punchestown 11 days ago in what looked a warm maiden hurdle.
Though the quick reappearance is a slight concern, the step up in trip is a positive and he has a pedigree to progress, being a half-brother to a bumper/hurdles winner, out of a half-sister to the dams of Sometimes Always (RPR130) and The Bosses Oscar (RPR153).
The yard had one beaten a short-head at 25-1 in a maiden hurdle here a year ago (would’ve won but for hanging near the line and unshipping his rider) and I’m confident Earths Furies has the ability to reach the frame. It may be that he needs more time/experience, but at 100-1 he is worth chancing.
0.5pts each-way Earths Furies @ 100-1 (Bet365, Ladbrokes, 80-1 elsewhere)
