THE Dublin Festival will be the focus of JP McManus’s attention, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be keeping a keen eye on STAMP YOUR FEET (3.10) at Musselburgh.
McManus loves a tilt at the big Cheltenham handicaps and Stamp Your Feet can book his ticket to the March festival with a bold show in the 3m 2f Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle.
Precious little separates the Tom George-trained gelding with his recent Musselburgh conqueror Cresswell Legend but Stamp Your Feet handled the mud at Hereford when beating Rayvin Black. Odds of 9-2 make plenty of each-way appeal.
Nicky Henderson has come north in search of better ground for his Cheltenham-bound trio We Have A Dream (1.25), Claimantakinforgan (2.00) and Mr Whipped (2.35). Yesterday’s rain has altered conditions quite significantly but all three are still very hard to oppose.
