"Hollie Doyle looks like a jockey to keep on side at Yarmouth. She has a 25% strike rate at this venue and is profitable to back £65 to a £1 level stake. She has six rides."

Money Talk

Money Talk continues to highlight the Betfair Sportsbook big-money moves to keep you in the loop. This section will now highlight market moves between 1:00 am and 9:00 am.

15:03 Punchestown - Cartouche 4/1 into 9/4
15:20 Redcar - Mutanaaseq 11/1 into 13/2
16:20 Redcar - Hazalou 20/1 into 15/2
19:20 Wolverhampton - Echo Beach 9/2 into 10/3

The step-up in trip for the first time from 1m to 1m6f for Iain Jardine's runner Hazalou in the 16:20 at Redcar looks to be the reason punters are latching on.

The horse's last RPR (Racing Post Rating) was as low as 29, but the trainer has previously featured in the spotlight for gambled runners.

Race of the day

We head to Yarmouth today for their 14:55 Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap. A competitive field, with little pace on, and a favourite on the upgrade but one that takes a significant rise in class.

Farhh To Shy has looked like a progressive three-year-old, scoring in two of her four starts to date, including on handicap debut last time over course and distance when she stepped up to today's seven-furlong trip.

There's little doubt the trip and course both suit, and she may have found a good opening with many of the others exposed.

Regardless of that fact, this is a steep rise in class, and she hasn't produced any next time out winners from her runs to date, which is concerning.

Visually she has looked impressive, but the clock nor the form backs it up, so perhaps this five-pound rise and the stiffer company may be enough to find her out - she is short enough in this field at 7/4.

Dazzling Dan may want for a slower surface, and he hasn't been the most convincing over this trip, but a return to Yarmouth for which he scored earlier this term off a three-pound lower mark is a good move.

He scored here in good style in a slowly run race that he dictated, and he may have the opportunity to do that again, being just one of two pace angles in the race (Global Esteem the other).

This is easier than many of the races he has been involved in this season, so he shouldn't be written off, for all he may prove weak at the finish.

Another that this is far easier for is Corvair, who has held his form well in some strong handicaps this season, notably on fast ground over today's seven-furlong trip, which includes having had Dazzling Dan in behind at Newmarket off a big weight.

He hasn't scored on turf yet but failed to stay the mile last time and, thanks to the jockey claim, is now effectively on a career-low handicap mark on grass.

A repeat of any of his runs this term will be good enough to claim victory here, and this looks like a good opportunity.

Final Word

The horse that suckered me into the racing game Altior has been retired by trainer Nicky Henderson fit and well, but it was a day of reflection rather than mourning on Monday evening.

Relief was the first emotion. To see the horse retire happy and healthy is the only thing that matters, and his glittering career of nine Grade 1 victories was sensational.

He was a horse that did his talking on the track, left fans speechless countless times, and gave me and many others memories we will never forget.

It's a shame his trainer overshadowed the later stages of his career with countless poor excuses, which means we are left with a few what-ifs.

However, any horse that brings that amount of joy to people goes down as legendary in my book. Enjoy the retirement Altior. You've undoubtedly earned it!

Until tomorrow, be lucky.
