Follow The Money: Two to back and one to oppose on a busy Saturday
The markets have been reviewed, and today's three Follow The Money selections come from the meetings at Ascot and Wetherby...
Our first selection of the day comes from Wetherby in the 14:30 2m Listed Hrd where Ma Filleule has drifted this morning from [3.05] out to [3.35]. She is a proven class act over fences having been a runner-up twice in Grade 1s. However this race looks set to revolve around how she will cope with her return back to hurdles and the drop back down in trip for her seasonal reappearance. There is no doubt she is a better chaser than hurdler and preference could be for market rival Intense Tango who should suit this trip better.
Our next selection comes in the feature race at Wetherby, the 15:05 3m Grd2 Charlie Hall Chs where Dynaste has been nicely backed from [5.0] in to [4.5]. This looks a good opportunity for him having run well in defeat in both Grade 1 and Grade 2 company last season. He attracts support today after managing to avoid a penalty and he has had the benefit of a recent run over hurdles in France which could prove vital and just give him an edge in this one.
Our final selection comes from Ascot in the 15:25 3m Grd3 Hcap Chs where Pendra is chosen to finally prove he has one of these big handicaps in him. The market certainly suggests he has, with his price shortening from [9.8] to [8.4]. Although having a reputation for coming up short on the big day he ran well and looked close to his best when fifth of twenty four in a Grade 3 handicap at the festival in March. He clearly goes well fresh and remains relatively unexposed and should be in good stead for today.
