Today's Follow The Money features bets from the meetings Ayr, Plumpton and Wolverhampton.
"The Nicky Richards yard is in form with three wins and two places from nine runners, and with a 26% strike rate in chases at Ayr confidence should be in abundance for Mister Marker."
We start the day with our lay as Keys has been uneasy in the market in the 14:05 at Plumpton. Starting at a low of 2.47/5 this one is now available to back at 2.982/1. Although finishing a respectable second last time out after a lengthy lay off we recommend it may be best to watch at a short price. Challenger Slowfoot looks an interesting prospect on his hurdling debut for his new yard and Santa's Secrets form suggest he should be winning soon, Keys is still looking to be getting back to his best so we think he is worth laying at a short price.
Mister Marker is our first back in the 15:20 at Ayr. Shortening from 5.14/1 in to an available 3.7511/4 as our selection looks to put his disappointing seasonal form behind him and get back to winning ways at a course he has won at twice before. The handicapper has been kind to Nicky Richards charge this season and he slips down in to a Class 4 company for the first time in a long while. The yard is in form with three wins and two places from nine runners, and with a 26% strike rate in chases at Ayr confidence should be in abundance for Mister Marker.
Lastly we look at our final back, Tamarin, who takes aim in the 15:30 at Wolverhampton. Gambled in from a high of 8.88/1 in to 6.411/2 this three-year-old will look to get off the mark after a promising second here last month. That run was no doubt his best since joining David Evans' yard and the signs are looking good for another strong display on the tapeta surface. The low draw looks to be beneficial over 5f and Adam Kirby, who boasts an impressive 20% strike rate here, takes the reins.
