THE FAMOUS SIR ALEX TREBLE
1999 > 2021?
Sir Alex Ferguson could land a HUGE 108/1 treble in today’s first three races.
And our man Templegate has tipped all three to go in!
HITMAN got back on track with an easy victory at Newbury last time after taking a tumble in the Grade 1 Scilly Isles Chase at Sandown in February.
He was going nicely at the time and would surely have figured in the finish.
MONMIRAL, also owned by Fergie, is unbeaten in four starts and was impressive when following a Grade 2 success with a bloodless victory at Haydock in February.
The form of that contest is working out well with the third going close in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham.
CLAN DES OBEAUX, the other Fergie horse, has been in the frame for the past two runnings of this race and can get his head in front.
He has been in decent form this season and put up a decent defence of his King George crown when third. He stepped up on that to go down in a tight finish at Newbury last time and the first-time cheekpieces could just liven him up a little bit.
