Follow The Money: Don't Miss this bet at Taunton

It's jumps racing all the way today!
It's jumps racing all the way today!

Today's Follow the Money comes from the meetings at Ascot, Taunton and Haydock.

"Trainer Phillip Hobbs has three wins and five place finishes from the last 14 days and although Miss Mobot is seemingly the yard's second string hurdler behind race favourite Miles To Milan, we feel this huge market move must be noted."

Back Miss Mobot each way @ 8.615/2 in the 13:35 at Taunton

Other Recommended Bets
Lay Connetable @ 3.052/1 in the 12:40 at Ascot
Back Bun Doran @ 4.03/1 in the 16:20 at Haydock

We begin the day at Ascot in the 12:40 1m7f Juvenile Hurdle where Connetable has been on the drift, moving from 2.68/5 out to 3.052/1. This bay gelding will be making his British debut today and the competition will be tough, with hugely impressive colt Gibralfaro particularly intimidating. Well-respected Juvenile trainer Alan King seems to have an impressive type here, with Gilbralfaro currently sitting second favourite in our Triumph Hurdle Antepost market follwing a streak of four consecutive wins. That strong record, coupled with a lot of unknowns for Connetable make us feel he is definitely worth a lay today.

We travel to Taunton next where Miss Mobot has made a significantly big move in the 13:35 2m3f Novice Hurdle, being backed in from 29.028/1 into 8.615/2. A win at Ffos Las on his first run last May and a respectable second place at Stratford in July were then followed up by disappointing performances more recently at Cheltenham and Huntingdon. Trainer Phillip Hobbs has three wins and five place finishes from the last 14 days and although Miss Mobot is seemingly the yard's second string hurdler behind race favourite Miles To Milan, we feel this huge market move must be noted. An each-way bet is the recommendation.

Our final selection comes from Haydock in the 16:20 2m3f Novice Hurdle where Bun Doran has been backed in from 5.95/1 to 4.03/1. This looks like a three horse race which gives Bun Doran a strong chance of getting his second win under rules today. Trainer Tom George is in some solid form with a 29% strike from the last 14 days, and this Shantou gelding is open for plenty of improvement.
