Follow The Money: The big movers from Fakenham on Wednesday
The markets have been reviewed and today's Follow The Money selections all come from the action at Fakenham...
We begin today's column with our lay bet in the 13:40 2m Maiden Hurdle, where the Oliver Sherwood-trained Legend Lady has drifted from [1.8] to [2.06]. This four-year old has not been seen on a track since finishing sixth in the Mares Bumper at Aintree, a decent performance. But it may be a different game for her over hurdles and we feel that she is short enough in the market after 200 days without a run, so a lay is the call.
Our first back of the afternoon is Midnight Chorister who runs in the 14:40 2m Handicap Chase and has been backed from a high of [14.3] in to [10.0]. The seven-year-old had his seasonal bow two weeks ago at Worcester and didn't put up much of a fight but whenever this horse has run well he has needed a run to freshen him up beforehand. The Alex Hales-trained runner has had one run at Fakenham so far in its career and it yielded a 17-length victory over the same distance. Back him for a repeat at a big price.
Our final selection of the day now is Road To Freedom, who has been backed off the boards in the 15:40 2m5f Handicap Chase, from backed from [4.9] into [2.92]. The Lucy Wadham-trained six-year old was last seen hacking up by 17 lengths in a Novice Hurdle at Stratford, in the process getting his head in front for the first time. He arrives today off a mark of 110 over fences and is 10lbs better off than his hurdle rating of 120 so a big positive. The trainer has also been in excellent form recently with two winners in the last eight days and a back bet at [2.92] is suggested to end the day well.
Lay Legend Lady @ [2.06] in the 13:40 at Fakenham
Back Midnight Chorister @ [9.8] in the 14:40 at Fakenham
Back Road To Freedom @ [2.92] in the 15:40 at Fakenham
