Today's win bet runs at the Curragh

Today's Follow The Money comes from this afternoon's cards at Brighton, Chelmsford City and The Curragh.

"While Rhododendron has been backed, her market rivals have gone the other way, and this looks a good opportunity for this filly to record back-to-back wins."

Back Rhododendron @ 2.6213/8 in the 16:15 at the Curragh

Other Recommended Bets
Back Boomerang Bob @ 8.615/2 in the 15:40 at Chelmsford City
Lay Soaring Spirit @2.6413/8 in the 16:30 at Brighton

We start with our each-way selection Boomerang Bob, who runs in the 15:40 at Chelmsford City after a market move from 12.5 in to 8.615/2. The selection returns to the country after connections entered this seven-year-old in a Group 3 contest in Norway, where heavy ground hampered his chances, but there will be no such worries for this contest over the Polytrack. The lower draw suits and 6f is his favourable trip, it would be no surprise to see this well-travelled, consistent sort return to form on today's mark.

Heading to the Curragh for our back bet, Rhododendron, who takes her chances in the 16:15 having been backed in from 3.052/1 in to 2.6213/8. She enters this race on the back of a decent victory in a maiden at Goodwood and interestingly, jockey Seamie Heffernan has choose to take this ride over stable mate Brave Anna, with whom he was on board when she landed the Albany Stakes at Ascot. While Rhododendron has been backed, her market rivals have gone the other way, and this looks a good opportunity for this filly to record back-to-back wins.

For our lay we go to the 16:30 at Brighton, where Soaring Spirits has been on the drift from 2.447/5 out to 2.6413/8. A difficult race to call the winner, three of the four runners in the field won last time and all four look to hold a chance. Soaring Spirit is looking to make it four wins from four runs this afternoon but he is a massive 16lb higher in the from the first of those three victories and 6lb higher from last time out. In such a competitive field it looks a matter of time before the handicapper catches up with this one and at the current odds we're happy to take this one on.
