Today's Follow The money selections come from Doncaster, Perth and Punchestown...
We begin with our back bet of the day, Eldritch, which runs in the 13:40 1m 2f Handicap at Doncaster. Punters have supported this son of Dark Angel from 4.05 into 2.68/5. This colt runs for red hot handler John Gosden. Ridden by former stable jockey Jimmy Fortune and running in the same George Strawbridge colours of Matron Stakes heroine Rainbow View, this 3yo's opening handicap mark of 77 looks lenient after a bloodless maiden victory at Haydock last year.
Our lay bet is War Creation which runs in the 14:00 2m Novice Hurdle at Perth. Ridden by Nico De Boinville this 5yo mare has been friendless in the market drifting from 2.265/4 out to 2.486/4 as punters look elsewhere at some unexposed sorts in this trappy contest north of the border. Trained by Nicky Henderson, whose concentration may be focused at Punchestown where he saddles Brain Power in the Grade1 Hurdle, this daughter of Scorpion may be up against it today.
Our each way bet of the day is Definite Ruby, which runs in the 16:55 2m 5f Handicap Chase at Punchestown. This likeable mare has seen strong each way support having been backed from 10.519/2 into 8.27/1. Winner of this race last year, trainer Gordon Elliott will be desperate to see a repeat performance to consolidate his narrow advantage in his titanic struggle with counterpart Willie Mullins for the Irish Trainers Championship. Ridden by 18-year-old Jack Kennedy once again, this 9yo mare is capable of a big performance off a mark of 126.
Back Eldritch @ 2.68/5 in the 13.40 Doncaster
Lay War Creation @ 2.486/4 in the 14:00 Perth
Back Definite Ruby Each Way @ 8.27/1 in the 16:55 Punchestown
