With much of the UK battered by rain the Follow The Money team will hopefully brighten up our Wednesday with these three selections from Catterick and Perth...
We start today with our each way selection. It comes in the 15:40 3m Handicap Chase where Royale Django has been well supported this morning from 14.5 into 9.617/2. Trained by the excellent Welsh trainer Tim Vaughan, who excels with his staying chasers, this looks a great opportunity for the youngest horse in the race. Cheekpieces added for extra encouragement and ridden by Callum Whillans taking a valuable 3lb off today, Royale Django has been in and out of form in his recent starts but has been given a helping hand by the handicapper and the market suggests he will be very competitive in today's race.
Next we head to the last race at Perth the 17:10 2m Handicap Hurdle for our win selection where Thorpe is subject of a consistent gamble this morning, 12.5 into 6.86/1. Previous winner of a 2m listed hurdle event he is looking to recapture similar form here today. Previous two outings have been over two and half miles, where he probably didn't stay the trip. Stepping back down to two miles today he looks to hold a strong chance in a weak handicap race. If in similar form to his listed win, Thorpe will be very hard to beat which is also suggested in today's market. Lucinda Russell looks to have found an ideal race for him today and we suggest a win bet.
Lastly we head to Catterick for the 17:30 5f handicap where we suggest a lay bet on Seamster. Having been very negative in the market this morning, drifting form a low of 2.17 out to 2.747/4, he looks to be up against it today. Having ran three times in the last eight days, the market suggests his recent exertions may have taken their toll. He was sent of a short 3.259/4 chance that day only to finish a well beaten five lengths. The trainer has opted for a unexperienced rider today and with the negative in the market we suggest a lay bet today.
