James Ferguson, son of former Godolphin chief executive and successful jumps trainer John, has taken out a lease on St Gatien Cottage Stables in Newmarket. The stables is currently owned by Charlie Fellowes and his filly is the main danger today to our Pacafi today, we hope the relationship does not compromise the situation. The yard had been vacant since Fellowes made the short move to Bedford House Stables on the Bury Road in the spring.
Ferguson has not trained a turf winner yet and we watch with interest the development of a modus operandi. Here are his figures to date:
2yo AW: 0-3 for 0% (-3.00)
2yo turf: 0-1 for 0% (-1.00)
3yo AW: 0-3 for 0% (-3.00)
3yo turf: 0-0 for 0% (+0.00)
4yo+ AW: 6-16 for 38% (+8.92)
4yo+ turf: 0-3 for 0% (-3.00)
His first 6 winners are all aged 4yo+ and currently striking at 38% for a level stake profit of 8.92pts. Today he runs 3 at Yarmouth, they are FIORDLAND 12.30 Yarmouth at 14/1 (Ladbrokes), THE RIGHT CHOICE 1.30 Yarmouth at 3/1 (general) and ALNASEEM 3.00 Yarmouth who alarmingly is currently drifiting like a barge, and now out to 9/2 (Bet365 & BetVictor). His best chance of a winner now looks to be The Right Choice and whilst William Buick rides the other two, Daniel Muscutt rides this one.
The Racing Horse was delighted to nominate a Pacafi from the new James Ferguson yard and fully expect this trainer to be successful! Our bet was available at prices between 9/2 and 5/1 but we have only recorded 3/1.
Ferguson has recorded his first turf winner as predicted and now shows figures of 7-29 for 24% and a level stake profit of +9.42pts. This is a trainer we will be watching from hereonin.
