We begin with our back bet on the day which is the Alan King-trained The Worlds End in the 12:40 at Ffos Las. This horse has been well-backed all morning, moving from a high of 5.04/1 to currently trade 2.6613/8. This lightly-raced gelding made a nice impression winning impressively first time under rules in a Chepstow bumper, and the form is working out nicely with the race producing three subsequent winners. A big drift on the JP McManus-owned Cash Again offers further encouragement in a big performance from our bet.
Our lay bet is Different Gravey in to 13:35 beginners' chase at Ascot. This smart hurdler tackles fences for the first time today but trainer Nicky Henderson said he had intended to run his horse at last weekend's Open Meeting which suggests this race is an afterthought. Although Different Gravey looks to have the size and scope to make a nice chaser he's taking on more experienced rivals and we're hoping that might make the difference. The market has reflected this with his price drifting from 1.548/15 out to 1.84/5.
We return to Ffos Las for our each-way selection which is the Tom Lacey-trained Bells On Sunday in the 13:45 Novice Hurdle. This lightly raced young horse has been well-backed all morning, shortening from 12.5 in to 7.413/2. Soft ground looks to be the key to this this horse's chances and he's going to get just that in Wales today. Jockey Thomas O'Brien takes off a valuable 7lb meaning she gets upwards of 14lbs from the market principals. Although only seven go to post this contest looks weak enough to justify an each-way bet.
