Today's Follow The money selections come from the meetings at Aintree and Wincanton

"His opposing three rivals should be more than capable of serving it up to him and we expect Boa Island to find one too good at the business end of the race."

Lay Boa Island @ 2.829/5 in the 14:55 at Wincanton

Other Recommended Bets
Back Ghost River each-way @ 6.86/1 in the 13:40 at Aintree
Back Ilovemints @ 3.052/1 in the 17:00 at Aintree

We begin with our each-way selection which is Ghost River in the 13:40 at Aintree who has been backed from 11.010/1 into 6.86/1. The Peter Bowen-trained novice tries his hand at hurdling again this year having come up short in graded company last season. Today's task looks much easier with No Comment and Robin Roe seemingly the only dangers. The three market leaders should fight this out and if Ghost River fails to get his head in front he should at least hit the frame to compensate.

Our lay bet is Boa Island in the 14:55 at Wincanton which has drifted from 2.6413/8 to 2.829/5. The six-year-old heads the market in this small but competitive field after finishing runner up on his seasonal bow at Sedgefield. His opposing three rivals should be more than capable of serving it up to him and we expect the jolly to find one too good at the business end of the race.

Finally our back bet is Ilovemints in the 17:00 at Aintree who has been well supported from 3.7511/4 into 3.052/1. The Kayf Tara-gelding arrives with a sole win at Bangor where he made short work of his four rivals when bolting by 15 lengths. If reproducing that form he will be tough to beat and looks and looks an exciting prospect for the up-and-coming Warren Greatrex stable.
