The markets have been reviewed, and today's three Follow The Money selections come from the meetings at Chepstow, Huntingdon, and Market Rasen...
We kick things off with our lay of the day. It comes from Market Rasen in the 13:50 2m7f Hcap Hrd where Shinooki has been extremely negative in the market this morning, drifting from 1.8910/11 out to 2.942/1. He has been in good form following a short break and a switch back to hurdles, easily winning at Southwell and Catterick recently. However he arrives today 10lbs higher in the weights which takes his hurdling mark into unchartered territory and with the ground being soft and likely to deteriorate further this could play a big part in the outcome of today's race.
Our each way selection comes from Chepstow in the 15:30 2m3f Hcap Chs where Grey Gold has been backed from 6.76 in to 6.05/1. Although he isn't getting any younger he ran arguably the best race of his career to win convincingly on his seasonal debut at Newbury in November. He has very good form around this course where he has already been a winner and he also posted a good effort when second here on soft ground a month ago. He should go well over this distance and today's opposition looks weaker than he is used to.
Our final selection comes from Huntingdon in the 15:55 2m4f Hcap Chs where Dusky Lark has seen some strong support, from 4.57/2 in to 3.259/4. He was unlucky not to be closer in a good race at Kempton last time out when he was beaten by 10 lengths due to a costly error three out. That was on good to soft and unlike others in the race he should relish the ground getting even softer today. He carries just 1lb extra than his last winning hurdles mark and has to be feared most in this one.
Lay Shinooki @ 2.942/1 in the 13:50 at Market Rasen
Back Grey Gold each way @ 6.05/1 in the 15:30 at Chepstow
Back Dusky Lark @ 3.259/4 in the 15:55 at Huntingdon
