Follow The Money: Al Furat the horse to back at Haydock

Al Furat runs at Haydock today

Today's Follow The Money comes from Goodwood and Haydock...

"His last run at Newcastle showed an improvement in form which could result in a first win at the Lancashire track. With today’s jockey claiming 5lbs there is a decent chance that the market move could well be justified."

Back Al Furat @ 4.67/2 17:15 Haydock

We start today by looking at the opener at Goodwood for our first selection which sees Our Queenie being ridden by jockey Richard Hughes in the 14:00 5f Maiden Stakes. It's hard to look past her in this one, she was way clear in the 6f maiden at Newmarket before being pipped, is currently trading at 1.351/3 and is unlikely to be bothered by the shorter distance. 

Today's lay of the day comes in the form of Richard Hannon's Wentworth, also ridden by Richard Hughes in the 16:20 6f Handicap at Goodwood. He's drifted from 2.37 out to 3.65 so far, and with connections hoping for some decent runs in bigger races, today's contest over 6 furlongs appears to be a prep run for the coming summer. Dropping him down in trip in ground that is potentially only going to soften may explain the lack of confidence in the market.

Our final selection is in the 17:15 at Haydock, 1m 4f Handicap where Al Furat has been steadily backed from 8.3 in to 4.67/2. His last run at Newcastle showed an improvement in form which could result in a first win at the Lancashire track. With today's jockey claiming 5lbs there is a decent chance that the market move could well be justified.
