Back Zeroshadesofgrey @ 1.794/5 in the 12:45 at Uttoxeter
 
Lay Rouquine Sauvage @ 2.789/5 in the 14:30 at Uttoxeter 

Back Liberty One @ 5.79/2 in the 14:45 at Newbury 

We start the day at Uttoxeter and the 12:45 3m Novice's Hurdle, where Zeroeshadesofgrey has had strong support from 2.285/4 in to 1.794/5. Neil King's runner managed to win with bags in hand last time after a 248-day break, storming to victory in a maiden hurdle also at Uttoxeter. Trevor Whelan is back on board today - a jockey and horse combination that has tasted victory three times. While today is a tougher task, up in trip another four furlongs, and with 7lbs more to carry after his last success, the market is confident with more than three-quarters of the money matched down on the five-year-old and we are backing him to win again.

Our lay of the day is also from Uttoxeter in the 14:30 2m4f Handicap hurdle where Rouquine Sauvage has drifted from as short as 2.01/1 out to 2.789/5. Turned out quickly under a penalty following a facile success at Chepstow last time, Anthony Honeyball's mare looks to have plenty in hand.  However, this is a step up in trip on heavy ground and our layers are happy to take her on at the current prices. Also worthy of note is the huge market move for Chestertern who has been smashed from an early high of 4.1 into 2.727/4 favourite. 

Over to Newbury for the second back of the day in the 14:45 2m6f Novices Handicap Chase, where the money really has come for the Richard Woolacott-trained Liberty One - in from a high of 8.88/1 to 5.79/2. This interesting eight-year-old had a 234-day absence before running out a creditable fourth in a warm race at Exeter. The form of that race is working out well, with the third placed runner Return Spring having won since. Going back in trip to 2m6f could be ideal after challenging over four out last time before fading as if needing the run. The market really suggests this horse should be in the money today.
