Today's Follow The Money comes from Sandown, Fakenham and Newcastle...
We kick off at Sandown in the opening 13:40 contest with our back bet of the day, which is Centurius trained by Venetia Williams. This horse has been very well backed this morning from high of 6.806/1 and is now as short as 4.30100/30 on the Exchange. He ran a nice race last time out at Haydock where he didn't get the rub of the green and a mistake at the second last looked to have cost him a place at least. He is now below his last winning mark and is getting his preferred soft ground so we recommend backing him at this price.
We move to Fakenham for our lay bet in the 14:30 where the Nicky Henderson-trained Stowaway Magic has drifted this morning from a low of 1.738/11 to now be trading around the 2.01/1 mark. A very impressive winner on its last start, this horse is stepping back up the to the trip of his only defeat over hurdles and although he obviously has plenty of pace he may not have the stamina to get home in the softening Fakenham ground, so we recommend laying him at his current price.
Finally to Newcastle for our each way bet of the day Handsome Dude in the 17:25 who has been well punted from 10.5019/2 into 7.206/1. This horse's form figure may be uninspiring on paper but he is dropping in class today and is now back down to his last winning mark. There looks to be a nice bit of pace in the race which will suit him as he comes off the pace and it is notoriously hard to make all the running on the stiff sprint track at Newcastle. All this considered he should be bang there at the finish with a clean passage and we suggest backing him at this price.
Back Centurius @ 4.407/2 in the 13:40 at Sandown
Lay Stowaway Magic @ 1.991/1 in the 14:30 at Fakenham
Back Handsome Dude Each-way @ 7.206/1 in the 17:25 at Newcastle
